Fresher with pressure
What is High-Pressure Processing?
High-Pressure Processing is an advanced procedure used to pasteurize and seal products in their final packaging. This technique utilizes low temperatures and high-pressure to safely and naturally process refrigerated food and drink products for manufacturers. The process is USDA approved and extends the shelf-life of refrigerated food products without the use of chemicals, preservatives, or loss of nutritional value.
How High-Pressure Processing Works
During High-Pressure Processing, a machine floods the compartment, surrounding all of the packaged food with temperature-controlled water at 87,000 psi, which denatures any pathogens in the food and allows for shelf-life extension.
No additives or preservatives
Maintains the health and integrity of the food
Breaks down bacteria without changing the food
Better ROI due to reduced waste and labor costs.
