Ultra High Temperature or Ultra Heat Treatment (UHT) milk can be defined as the sterilized milk which is heated to a temperature of at least 132°C for a few seconds followed by a fast cool down. This process of sterilisation eliminates all the forms of microorganisms including fungi, spores, viruses and bacteria, thereby, increasing the shelf life of the milk. Post the process of sterilisation, the milk goes through aseptic packaging to prevent any re-infection by the bacteria and pathogens. This packaging also ensures protection of the nutritional content, hygiene and storage efficiency.
UHT milk can be easily stored at room temperature with least refrigeration and boiling requirements. Thus, it provides convenience by serving as a ready-to-consume product to urban consumers with hectic lifestyles. Further, the ability of being distributed without any need of cold chains have facilitated the penetration of UHT milk into the non-fridge households and the regions where milk scarcity is prevalent.
Owing to the aforementioned advantages of UHT milk, the market is currently experiencing a healthy growth in both developed and developing regions. Moreover, population growth, increasing disposable incomes, urbanisation and changing dietary patterns have also added to the growth of the global UHT milk market. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global UHT milk market reached a consumption volume of 95 Billion Litres in 2016 and is further expected to reach a volume of 139 Billion litres by 2022.
