The Instacart guide to chocolate milk products

About chocolate milk

Chocolate milk is sweetened milk with a chocolate flavor. The milk could come from cows, goats, rice, soy, and other sources. Cocoa powder, melted chocolate, and chocolate syrup could be the source of the chocolate flavor. Sweeteners present in chocolate milk include sugar or other sugar substitutes.

Milk brings a lot of nutritional value to chocolate milk products. It is a whole protein, which means it contains all the essential amino acids your body requires. Milk is also rich in calcium, vitamin D, phosphorus, riboflavin, potassium, and carbs. It also contains small amounts of magnesium, zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamins A, B1, B6, and B12. 

Chocolate milk is said to have originated in Jamaica. In the early 1700s, Irish physician Sir Hans Sloane helped to popularize chocolate milk. He found the cocoa to be better when he added it to milk, and he grew fond of the drink. Sloane brought the formula back home, and its popularity spread. However, chocolate milk could have also gotten to Europe through Christopher Columbus' exploration of the Americas. People first used it as a medicine, and its popularity spread later as a beverage.

FAQs About Chocolate Milk

Chocolate milk can last about four to seven days past its expiration date if you store it properly in the fridge. Ensure you store it in the main body of the fridge and not the door.

Chocolate milk may separate in the freezer because of the gravity and density difference between the cocoa powder and the milk. You can still use it for baking or cooking.

Chocolate milk in boxes lasts longer because the manufacturers pasteurize all the bacteria, including ones that cause it to spoil.
