Ready prepared fruit and vegetables
Vegetable products are an important element in our diet. It is therefore of the utmost importance that they retain their nutritional and sensory qualities as long as possible, and during all the phases of their journey, from harvest to the consumer's table.
On the other hand, today's pace of life requires that fruit and vegetables are ready for consumption while remaining natural.
This explains the success of ready prepared products (including washed fruit and vegetables, sliced and/or portioned, and ready to consume) as well as unfrozen, precooked vegetables. It is no coincidence that when compared to other types of fruit and vegetable markets, the market relating to these products has registered a more rapid rate of growth.
The benefits derived from the use of SIAD gases and mixtures in these foodstuffs are essential in increasing shelf-life and in slowing the growth of bacteria. These benefits have an even greater role in this sector as the gases are atmospheric and are therefore free of the chemical additives which can affect the natural quality of the product.
SIAD gases and mixtures can be used in every phase of the process so that the final product preserves its original flavour, freshness, aroma and colour.
