Elea PEF Benefits for your business
Elea PEF systems bring positive and dramatic changes to manufacturing. Improving output, reducing energy and labour costs, streamlining supply chain logistics, shortening process times and curtailing retail waste. PEF is able to restructure raw materials such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots and cassava which provides new shapes and product opportunities and enhances process optimisation.
PEF improves the extraction rates of juices, sugars, colours and other active substances, it increases yield and dramatically lowers water usage.
PEF inactivates microorganisms in liquid products such as juices, smoothies and purees which significantly extends shelf life, enabling better production planning. Low temperature processing preserves nutrients, colour and flavor.
All of which result in cost savings and higher product quality.
