Abstract/Summary Ultra-high-temperature (UHT) processing of milk converts a very perishable natural product into a long-shelf-life product. This chapter first discusses the principles, the various processes used and some recent trends in the technology. It highlights the significance of the temperature-time profile of the UHT process and relates this to changes that occur during processing, including whey protein denaturation and formation of protein complexes, fouling or deposit formation, Maillard reactions and lactose isomerisation. Finally, the changes that occur during storage such as gelation, protein changes, flavour changes and fat separation are discussed.
