Our FoodTech solutions are based on a patented technology called CEPT (Controlled Environment Pulsed Electric Field Treatment).
Pulsed electric field (PEF) technology is a non-thermal food processing method that uses high-voltage, low-energy electric pulses to disrupt the cell membranes of the treated commodity.
PEF has several advantages in food processing over other sterilization technologies, such as heat pasteurization. It is faster, requires less energy, and can be more selective in killing microorganisms. PEF technology also preserves or enhances the original color, flavor, texture, and nutritional values.
The application is retrofitted into existing production lines. Where in the line to place it depends on the desired effect.
OptiCept has developed products tailored for specific commodities. Explore our products below and our development projects.
