HOW MST WORKS

ABOUT MST

MST Technology is technologically superior to other pasteurization methods.

Current milk processing methods have their limitations. HTST retains fresh milk’s flavor and nutrients, but has a short shelf life. UHT offers a longer shelf life, but its high temperature affects milk’s flavor and nutrition.

MST’s proprietary technology uses a unique combination of low heat and low pressure to maintain fresh milk’s flavor and nutritional value, while also achieving a highly efficient 8-log bacteria reduction to significantly extend product shelf life.
