Ultra-heat-treated or UHT milk is a physical process in which milk is heated to temperatures of up to 150 °C for several seconds, which is then packaged aseptically. This destroys microbes and deactivates enzymes while preserving the flavor, taste, and nutritional value of the milk – giving it extended shelf life.
