It allows food to retain more colour, texture, taste and nutrition. Our aseptic packaging offers a variety of package shapes, consumer convenience and economies in energy and packaging materials. Everything in the production chain must be commercially sterile. That includes food and packaging materials, all machinery and the environment in which the packaging takes place. An aseptic package has been sterilised prior to filling with UHT Ultra High Temperature treated food, resulting in a product which is shelf stable for over 6 months. Our aseptic packaging method passes flat, unformed packaging material through a heated hydrogen peroxide bath. Hydrogen peroxide is then eliminated from the packaging material using pressure rollers or hot air.
Growth of the Aseptic Processing Market is mainly attributed to rising usage of aseptic processing used in food and pharmaceutical sector due to the changing government policies that demand maximum quality and nutritional values in products. Aseptic processing is the process in which sterile products are packaged in an aseptic container in a way that preserves the national values of the food. Rising awareness regarding food safety and hygiene has also promoted the growth of this market. Considering the new government norms, companies have adopted new techniques to keep packed products hygienic for long periods such as hermetically sealed packages and using environment-friendly packaging. The producers attain this by flash heating the products at significant temperatures using thermal sterilization keeping products hygienic for longer periods mean, less waste produced. Thus, Aseptic processing is a boon that helps in reducing human footprint.

The packaging method has wide application array in pharmaceutical industry. Sterilization of products before filling sterilization of packaging materials or containers before filling sterilization of aseptic installations before operationuht unit, sterile air and gasses, filler and relevant machine zones production of hermetic packages 3. Aseptic packaging is the last step in aseptic food processing, and with this form of packaging, food products are continuously sterilized, to ensure no microorganisms are in the food which would cause either food decay andor food poisoning. Aseptic processing and packaging of food explains how aseptic processing and packaging first began and traces its fascinating progression over the last fifty years. These processors started to aseptically process and package shelfstable.
Processed Apple Products pp Cite as. In early , the Food and Drug Administration FDA approved the use of hydrogen peroxide as a chemical sterilant for certain food-packaging materials. This important decision made possible the introduction of a new technology for producing shelf-stable juices and drinks and gave American consumers a heretofore unseen product-package combination. In , million individual aseptic packages were produced; more than 4 billion units were expected by the late s. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF.

Food packaging plays a vital role in preserving food throughout the distribution chain. Without packaging, the processing of food can become compromised as it is contaminated by direct contact with physical, chemical, and biological contaminants. In recent years, the development of novel food packaging Directly related, and interlinked, with food packaging is the concept of shelf life - the length of time that foods, beverages, pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals, and many other perishable items are given before they are considered unsuitable for sale, use, or consumption.
Growing demand for disposable equipment in the healthcare industry is expected to increase demand for aseptic packaging products which will positively impact the industry growth over the forecast period.

Inspections of aseptic processing and packaging systems for Low Acid Canned Food LACF are some of the most complex inspections of food manufacturing operations. The major difference between aseptic processing and the more "conventional" types of LACF processing is that a process authority s must establish a process that ensures commercial sterility not only of the product but also for:. Documentation of production operations must be maintained by the firm showing that commercially sterile conditions are achieved and maintained in all these areas. Any breach of a scheduled process for the processing or packaging system means that the affected product must be destroyed, reprocessed or segregated and held for further evaluation.
