"There's a current fad going on where some consumers prefer to buy milk stored in glass bottles. Usually, this milk is perceived as a premium, higher-quality milk.

.... one major reason exists as to why glass-bottled milk should never be purchased: the nutritional content is negatively affected by the glass.

By using glass bottles, milk manufacturers open their product up to light oxidation. This reaction between light and nutrients in the milk is much more likely to occur in glass packaging than in traditional plastic or cardboard cartons and causes essential amino acids like tryptophan and tyrosine to break down. These amino acids, which our body cannot produce on its own, are lost as a result.

Other health components of milk degraded by light include vitamin A and riboflavin."

Some of the health stores like Sprouts, Trader Joes, Whole FOods and others offer milk in glass bottles.
