Aseptic packaging utilizes a combination of high-temperature and short-duration thermal processing to create a room-temperature, shelf-stable beverage. The process eliminates potentially deadly bacteria by combining sterile products with sterile containers in a sterile environment. The end result is a safe beverage with a long shelf life that doesn’t require refrigeration, special handling or preservatives.
Fruit juices are the most common aseptically packaged beverages in the United States. These high-acid products are a familiar site in the super-market aisles.
