Pasteurisation is a process that destroys potentially harmful microorganisms in food by applying a precise amount of controlled heat for a specified period of time. Although pasteurisation does not sterilize food, i.e., eliminate all microorganisms, proper application of the technique renders foods safer for consumption.
