Difference between Milk in Glass Bottles and Carton

Milk in glass bottles is usually pasteurized. This method uses a low temperature (generally 60-82℃) and the food is heated for a specified period of time. Milk in a glass bottle can achieve the purpose of disinfection without damaging the quality of food.

Carton milk is mostly sterilized at ultra-high temperatures. This is a method of sterilization that uses high temperatures and a short time to kill harmful microorganisms in liquid food. This method can not only preserve the flavor of food, but also kill harmful microorganisms, such as pathogenic bacteria and heat-resistant spore-forming bacteria. Sterilization temperature is generally 130-150℃.
