The appertization is an example of sterilization. This long time conservation process at room temperature associates :


- a thermal treatment destroying micro-organisms capable to reproduce at normal storage temperatures
- and a tight packing avoiding any product recontamination after sterilization.
- The appertized product, stocked at room temperature, requires very short time to be fully warmed up(by microwave especially).
- Appertization is particularily recommended for baked and cooked products.
