Mild food preservation, improved extraction processes, higher concentrations of bioactive compounds, enhanced drying processes: pulsed electric field (PEF) treatment is a versatile technology. Moreover, PEF is a mild process that leaves valuable compounds unaffected and often leads to product and process improvement and energy reduction. What are potential applications of this technology in fruit and vegetable processing?
The Dutch company Pulsemaster has an office for the North-American market at its disposal in Seattle/Bellevue, Washington. Pulsemaster aspires to further growth in the potato, fruit and vegetable industry. The company rapidly develops export activities. “Worldwide the potato industry shows great interest in our new generation PEF technology”, says Pulsemaster’s managing director Mark de Boevere.Read more
