Boiling may pasteurize but I seriously question whether it would sterilize.

TBS, it only takes something on the order of 160-180°F to pasteurize and avoid the problems with higher temperatures denaturing proteins.

Besides, why pasteurize something that is already pasteurized, at least in the USA?
