There are several terms used for steam. Process steam is used in process applications as a source of energy for process heating, pressure control and mechanical drives. Culinary steam can be direct injected during food processing. Culinary steam needs to meet 3-A Culinary Standards for the dairy industry. Process steam does not generally come in contact with the final product whereas culinary steam can, and often does, come in direct contact with the final product.
