LED Display Lights Can Help Milk Taste Better: Study

A new study suggests if LED lights are used in milk display cases, they will not only reduce energy bills but also make the milk taste better. In the United States, LED lights are widely used in milk retail outlets as a replacement of fluorescent lights. 

Regarding the chemistry of changes, experts said the change basically affects Riboflavin — a nutrient that gets oxidized under fluorescent lights. It changes the taste of milk and reduces its nutritional content. These reactions take place in just two hours, if milk is stored in translucent plastic jugs. 

Market research firm Technavio added that the higher growth for almond milk is a response to the battle against obesity in America, aided by the consumer perception that non-dairy milk is a healthier option.
