Kill the bacteria in your product
Sterilisation is like pasteurisation a method of thermal processing to remove living micro-organisms. Compared to pasteurisation, a heat treatment of over 100°C is applied for a period long enough to lead to a stable product shelf-life.
Ultra-high temperature sterilisation (UHT) has a heat treatment of over 100°C during very short times, it is especially applicable to low viscous liquid products.
In a sterilisation procedure, a product is briefly heated for only a few seconds. Heating the product kills bacteria and the spores that produce them. Sterilisation is a process in the food industry that kills harmful bacteria in food products susceptible to spoiling by briefly heating the food without harming it. The chemical composition of the product is changed as a result of the sterilisation process, and this may affect the taste of the product.
