Pasteurization is a highly beneficial process that plays a crucial role in food preservation. Essentially, this process destroys pathogenic bacteria and deactivates enzymatic activity, which helps to safeguard and extend the shelf life of products. To achieve these goals, liquid or viscous food products are heated to temperatures ranging from a minimum of 60°C to a maximum of 100°C. By doing so, the product becomes safe for consumption, and its longevity is increased. It’s worth noting that when it comes to viscous products, such as those with high viscosity, the process can be a little more challenging.
Luckily, the PERFITHERM Thermal Processor is a fantastic solution that has been specifically designed to handle such products, ensuring that they too can benefit from the advantages of pasteurization. Overall, pasteurization is a powerful tool in any food preservation arsenal, and the PERFITHERM Thermal Processor is the perfect solution to make the process even more effective.
