UHT Milk

UHT milk is heated for 1-2 seconds to a temperature exceeding 135 C. This temperature kills the spores in milk. UHT stands for Ultra-high temperature processing or ultra-heat treatment.

UHT milk is not the only UHT product, UHT processing is also used for creams, yoghurts, wines, soups and fruit juices.

UHT processing gives a different flavour to the milk then fresh milk. The advantage with UHT milk is that the milk will stay fresh for up to 12 months unopened. This means that it’s easy to store, can be stored at ambient temperature. For barista’s and coffee shops this could be good, for it will almost always foam.
