Improvement of taste and flavour in sterilisation or pasteurisation processes
Aim of the organoleptic optimisation of canned food
Enhance your sterilized or pasteurized product by adapting the retort process:
Gains on the organoleptic quality of your recipes are quite possible as soon as the process is designed to follow their thermal characteristics. Thus, we reduce the degradations due to over-cooking (formation of exudate, tarnishing of colors, softening of texture, denaturation of flavor, …).
This practice also gives excellent results on pasteurised products.
The other strong point of this method is that it provides you with reproducible quality products, for perfect standardisation of your recipes.
Experience shows that nutrients are better preserved inside the food due to less migration to the exudates (usually evacuated by the consumer).
Methodology for organoleptic optimisation
• instrumented monitoring with the usual process and a fully loaded retort.
• 1 to 3 changes of the program (partial load).
Validation of the optimized process:
• control of the new thermal process and verification of taste objectives with retort fully loaded.
