HPP USES COLD PRESSURE TO GUARANTEE FOOD SAFETY AND INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

  • Shucking of Mollusks: Using pressures between 2,000 – 3,500 bar / 200 – 350 MPa / 30,000 – 45,000 psi, the shells of the bivalves open with ease and allow an efficient extraction of the meat without affecting the product, since it is a non-thermal process.
  • Crustacean Meat Extraction: HPP completely separates the meat from the shell of lobsters and crabs, allowing for a 100% meat extraction yield. While avoiding the need to cook the product, you can maintain its color, texture and flavor profile intact.
  • Prevents Cross Contamination. Manual handling of seafood is avoided, reducing the cost, time and risk of contamination.
  • Food Safety. HPP inactivates parasites such as Anisakis and microorganisms such as Vibrio sp. And Norovirus, which have traditionally been the cause of outbreaks linked to the consumption of fresh oysters or crustaceans.
  • Conservation of Fresh Fish or Ready-to-Eat (RTE) Products: Cod, crabmeat or salmon-based dishes benefit from all the HPP benefits.
  • Improved Animal Welfare: A study from the University of Aberdeen (Scotland) showed that the use of HPP in both mollusks and crustaceans reduces their stress levels, compared to other meat extraction techniques.
