What is Pasteurization?

Pasteurization is a heat-treatment process that destroys pathogenic microorganisms in certain foods and beverages. The name comes from French Microbiologist Louis Pasteur. Louis Pasteur (in the 1860s) was demonstrated that abnormal fermentation of wine and beer could be prevented by heating the beverages to about 57° C (135° F) for a few minutes.

The Purpose of Pasteurization:

  1. To increase milk safety for the consumer: The process destroys the pathogenic microorganisms (diseases causing) that usually present in milk.
  2. To increase keeping the Milk quality: The Process destroys the spoilage microorganisms and enzymes. Enzyme and microorganisms reduced the quality and shelf life of milk. Hence Pasteurization increase the expiry date of milk and milk products.

  • Beer
  • Canned Foods

Does pasteurization change the nurition value of milk?

As per the CDC, this process does not change the nutritional value of the milk. Only vitamin C doesn’t survive after the pasteurized, so most of the dairy company added vitamin c in the milk after pasteurization.

If you’re thinking, Raw milk-drinking is good for health because it’s a good source of beneficial bacteria like probiotics. then you should know that it could be harmful and make you sick because the Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other more heat-resistant of the non-spore-forming, disease-causing microorganisms found in milk.
