Whitepaper: Optimizing High Acid Pasteurization
Tetra Pak Processing white paper detailing how we may be over-pasteurizing some of our drinking juices – and wasting energy, money and time in the process.
The group’s findings show that the pasteurization recommendations can be optimized while retaining product quality. This is supported by detailed microbial analysis and evaluation of product quality after months of storage. There is an established practice among fruit juice manufacturers and bottlers that fruit juices are commonly pasteurized twice before reaching the consumer. The purpose of these heat treatments is to make the juice product stable during its planned storage period.
