aseptic packaging

Definition

Food

  • packaging of food to ensure asepsis either by filling in unsterilized containers at 124°C, closing and leaving at temperature until all contaminants are inactivated, or by filling the food in sterilized containers in an apparatus which is itself sterilized where they can be sealed. The second method is generally used only where large numbers of containers are to be packed.
