Other products are meant to be more convenient and not require refrigeration but still provide high quality. These types of products are aseptically processed.
Both ESL and Aseptic processes are UHT processes. Therefore, they may use indirect or steam injection heating. In comparison, pasteurization processes are done under HTST conditions, and therefore must be heated indirectly to match with commercial HTST processes.
