Ultra High Temperature is a thermal sterilisation process designed to heat low acid purees to temperatures of approximately 140 C for short periods of time, then fill into pre-sterilised bags in a sterile atmosphere utilising a special low-acid bag filling system. This is in contrast to other forms of sterilisation like canning and retort systems.
