High pressure processing (HPP) technology is an innovative technology recognized by food safety agencies around the world. Thanks to the three decades of international research and application, this technology has positioned itself as the most effective solution for preserving 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 food and beverages. From the earlier HPP applications such as juices, avocado and meat products, to the latest trends such as ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, vegetable dips, baby food and pet food.
Other application that can be used with HPP include dairy and seafood products. Seafood in particular can efficiently be used for the cold extraction of meat in crustaceans and the opening of mollusks. In addition to food & beverage applications, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products represent a sector that seems to be promising.
