During Ultra-heat treatment for UHT milk, milk is heated to a high temperature of about 140-142 degrees Celsius for 2 seconds, killing bacteria and naturally increasing the shelf-life of milk. The sterilized milk is then packed in sterilized containers under sterile conditions by a process known as aseptic packaging. The specialized aseptic packaging prevents any light and air contamination and ensures the milk stays safe for consumption for longer, even outside of refrigeration.
However, to know how long you can store the UHT milk for, it is best to check the shelf-life mentioned on the package. After opening, the milk must be refrigerated and consumed within 24 hours.
