What is the difference between the terms homogenize and pasteurize in dairy (milk) products?
Homogenization is a process by which the fat globules are broken down and evenly interspersed throughout the liquid to create a uniform product. Milk is typically homogenized, but Trader Joe’s also typically carries cream top milk. Cream top milk is not homogenized, and the fat floats to the top because the fat molecules are not mechanically broken down.
