Introducing High-Pressure Processing (HPP) Technology
High-pressure processing, also known as HPP, is an innovative technology used in the food and beverage industry to extend the shelf life of products while preserving their taste, texture, and nutritional value.
HPP involves subjecting packaged foods and beverages to extremely high levels of pressure, typically 6,000 bar / 87,000 psi, for 3 minutes. This preservation method effectively destroys harmful bacteria, molds, and yeasts, without the need for heat or chemical additives that may alter the product’s natural composition.
In the world of food and beverage production, maintaining the highest standard of safety and quality is paramount. Consumers today are increasingly conscious of what goes into the products they consume, seeking options that are not only delicious but also minimally processed and free from harmful additives.
This demand has fueled the rise of innovative technologies, such as HPP, that enable brands to preserve the natural integrity of food while ensuring its safety.
Benefits of high-pressure processing include:
- Food Safety: HPP helps destroy harmful bacteria and pathogens, without getting rid of beneficial vitamins and minerals.
- Longer Shelf-Life: HPP helps to greatly extend product shelf life anywhere between 2x and 10x.
- Clean Label: HPP helps eliminate the need for unnecessary additives, allowing products to retain the clean label advantage.
- Taste & Quality: No chemicals or heat means food & beverage products don’t lose their fresh flavor, appearance, texture, or taste.
- Eco-Friendly: The process uses only recycled water and electricity.
