Pasteurising preserves the value of raw milk as a commodity, and make sure the milk safe to drink.

The most common thermal treatments in the Dairy are mentioned below

  • Thermisation: 63° C – 15 Second – Mostly used if milk must be stored a while before pasteurising
  • LTLT Pasteurising of milk – 63° C – 30-33 minutes – Very gentle pasteurising, all taste remains unchanged, mostly for smaller capacities
  • HTST Pasteurising of milk – 72-75° C – 15-25 Seconds – Most common pasteurising for drinking milk, very economical
  • HTST Pasteurising of Cream – 83-85° C – 5-10 Seconds – For cream and fermented milk products
  • UHT Pasteurisation of milk – 135-142° C – 4-5 Seconds – For sterilised product with long shelf life and no need for cooling
  • Sterilisation in Container – 115-125° C – 20-30 minutes – Often used for condensed milk and e.g. Baby Food
