I`m planning on coming out with a small line of Teriyaki sauce. I`ve been researching both glass and plastic 12 oz bottles. But, I just realized that I may need to sterilize the bottles. My product obviously contains quite a bit of salt and sugar so I don`t think anything can grow in it. Is it necessary to sterilize the bottles? If so, how do I sterilize plastic bottles? Is there a concern of the plastic leaching into the sauce? What is the best way to sterilize glass bottles? (I could do either hot or cold filling)
Any guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
