FieldFOOD is a EU-funded project that has developed ‘Pulsed Electric Field’ (PEF) equipment that can be easily integrated in existing food production lines. This portable PEF-equipment consists of a treatment chamber and separate generator. PEF-technology is an innovative food processing technology that improves the freshness, texture and nutritional value of food products. The FieldFOOD project conducted a number of product cases on plant-based foods, namely on olive oil, tomatoes, fruit juices, wine and apple cider.
At the stand, you can see the PEF equipment in operation! Tomatoes will undergo PEF-treatment, allowing you to see that less time and effort is required to separate the skin from the fruit. Potatoes, carrots, beetroots and grapes will also be treated with PEF-technology . You can taste how PEF-treatment can produce fruity red wines in a shorter time and see the clarity of the tasty olive oil. Our engineers will be available at the stand to discuss the opportunities for your production line.
PEF-technology allows your food and drink products to look and taste fresh and healthy, with other benefits including:
• Reduced time to process raw produce
• Reduced water and energy consumption
• Increased nutritional value
• Extended shelf-life
• New product development opportunities
