Milk cartons are design and treated in such a way that they don’t emit anything in the milk itself. They are made from a type of paper and glued, after which it is treated by a waterproof wax. Only after this process is done are they shipped to the milk industries, thus avoiding any kind of chemical reaction to take place between the milk and the package itself.
I wonder what the waterproof wax is composed of?
It’s called paraffin wax, simplest form of it is methane CH4 (at room temperature). It has a general formula of C(n)H(2n+2). The wax is white, odorless, tasteless with a melting point of 47 – 65C degrees (116F – 147F). (for further chemical info visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraffin)
