Aseptic is a process in which a food product is packaged in three stages (thermal sterilization of the product, sterilization of packaging, and preservation of sterilization during packaging) in such a way that it does not need to be kept in the refrigerator.
The aseptic process has almost completely replaced freezing in liquid foods, including milk, fruit juices and concentrates, yogurt, liquid eggs, and ice cream mixes.
In recent years, this technique has become increasingly popular for products such as cheese, baby foods, meat products, fruits and vegetables, soups, tomato pastes, jams, and desserts.
It should be noted that Kowsar Beh Chin Samin Company, a manufacturer of kinds of canned food, compote, and jam with the brand name “Manilo” holding international certificates such as ISO9001, ISO22000, HACCP, and GMP, is a subsidiary of Kowsar Saba Holding Company which is located in Torbat-e Jam County, Khorasan Razavi province.
