Pasteurization is the process of heating milk to temperatures 71.7 °C (161 °F) for 15–20 seconds then cooling it down real fast. Yes, the heat does kill off much of the goodness and benefits of original straight-from-the-animal milk. Contrary to popular thought that unpasteurized milk is somehow "bad" for you, it unsafe, perhaps even deadly, and a host of many other cautions, unpasteurized milk is, on the contrary perhaps one of the world's most perfect foods.
