PEF for Food Supplements Production

Product Examples: Vitamins, minerals, pigments, antioxidants, flavors, phytochemicals, herbal extracts, algae, and seaweed products.

Aim of PEF Treatment: Microbial inactivation, cell disintegration, structure modification, stress response, drying enhancement.

Preserving Nutritional Value

PEF treatment enhances the extraction processes in food supplement manufacturing. Crucially, it does not compromise valuable nutritional compounds such as vitamins, flavors, and phytochemicals, which are essential for the nutritional value of the final supplement. Additionally, the extraction process benefits from the permeabilization of cell walls, leading to both higher yield and improved quality.

Applications:

Benefits of PEF

  • Enhanced extraction processes and product quality.
  • Increased extraction yield.
  • Elevated concentration of phytochemicals due to stress induction in plant cells.
  • Higher process efficiency.
  • Improved moisture transport and removal.
