The bulk of milk sold in this country is pasteurized whole milk. This is normally made by the high temperature‐short time (HTST) process in which the milk is heated to 72°C, held there for 15 seconds, and then cooled using a very rapid heat exchanger. Pasteurization destroys all the pathogenic organisms and about 99% of the other bacteria in milk.
