Super Bowl Sunday is Upon Us

Super Bowl Sunday is soon upon us, and as Americans gather to watch their favorite teams compete, they’ll also be chowing down on their favorite chips and dips. Many of these foods have undergone high pressure processing (HPP) for food safety and fresh, homemade taste.

Chips and dip, chicken wings and pizza are the three most popular Super Bowl foods according to one report, including dippable snacks like guacamole, salsa and hummus – all foods that have been HPP’d.

The California Avocado Commission reports Americans consume 8 million pounds of guacamole on Super Bowl Sunday. HPP inactivates bacteria, ensures a clean label, and provides extended shelf life for today’s avocado products. Dips, too, undergo HPP for food safety, taste and premium quality. Many of today’s dips and sauces are gluten-free, nut-free, meat-free and dairy-free to meet consumer’s dietary needs.

Freshness and flavor are what consumers look for in their favorite dips. And many check the food label to ensure the ingredients are ones they recognize. Did you know that many of today’s plant-based dips and pizza toppings like sausage are made using HPP to ensure freshness, taste, and nutritious ingredients without the need for preservatives?

HPP uses cold water and high pressure applied to the outside of a food package. This non-heat food preservation method harnesses pressure to inactivate foodborne pathogens like Salmonella and E. coli without affecting taste and nutritional value.

 

HPP Innovative Technology for Fresh Food

High pressure processing (HPP) technology is an innovative technology recognized by food safety agencies around the world. Thanks to 30 years of international research and application, this technology is recognized as the most effective solution for preserving refrigerated food and beverages.

Fruit puree was the first industrial application of HPP, which was developed in Japan in the early 1990s. Its numerous advantages have led to the extension of this technology to a wide variety of foods and beverages. From earlier HPP applications of juices, avocado and meat products, to the latest trends of ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, vegetable dips, baby food and pet food, HPP is a mainstay in the food industry.

HPP Benefits

One of the main benefits of HPP is food safety, but it also allows food producers to use fewer preservatives and extend shelf life, reducing food waste. As the fresh foods movement has grown, HPP has become a more popular food safety approach giving consumers fresh, high-quality foods with homemade taste.
