Pulsed Electric Field for French Fries and Chips – Introducing the Solidus PEF Batch Unit

Pulsemaster, an innovative Dutch company, introduces the Solidus, a highly effective Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) pilot-scale batch unit under its brand. This unit is designed to determine the effects of PEF on whole potato tubers for the production of French fries and crisps, uniquely avoiding tissue damage prior to the PEF treatment.

For the first time, the food and scientific sectors have an instrument to assess the impact of PEF on plant cell viability in intact plant tissues or whole solids, such as large whole potato tubers, before installing industrial-sized PEF systems.

This advancement enables the production of industrial-scale data on benefits throughout the entire production of French fries, crisps, and specialty potato products, as well as other raw materials like sweet potatoes, cassava, and carrots, which opens up new shapes and product opportunities.
