Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9841102A1] The disclosure relates to a method of producing UHT milk with improved flavour qualities. The method includes pretreatment of the milk by separation and standardisation, and also homogenisation and heat treatment. The treatment takes place at a temperature exceeding 135 DEG C. The method also includes enzyme deactivation, in one or more stages. The milk is then kept in holder cells at a temperature of 55-70 DEG C for a period of time of 2-10 minutes. Enzyme deactivation is carried out after the heat treatment, or alternatively before the heat treatment.
