I can't tell when milk is spoiled

Does anyone else have this problem?

Milk always has an odor that seems off to me. I just never learned to tell when it is bad. Not having a lot of it growing up in a house with lactose-intolerant Asian parents is probably why.

I buy it when I plan on cooking something with milk and I am often left with half a container of milk that I end up forgetting to use. I hate how wasteful it makes me feel.

Even though I don't like the smell, I have no problems eating cereal with it. I just have zero confidence in being able to tell if it has gone bad and is more likely to cause stomach problems as it approaches the "sell by" date on the container.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
