Nuts, Seeds & Grains
Low-moisture foods such as nuts, seeds, and grains are often considered low-risk in food safety. However, pathogenic microorganisms such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria can survive under dry conditions for several months or even years. Pathogens in food can cause serious illnesses at very low levels, and therefore, pathogens in low-moisture foods must be controlled.
Today’s engaged, health-conscious consumers expect that the foods they purchase and consume will be safe and of high quality. Neo-Pure satisfies the key factors consumers consider when choosing foods: food safety, nutritional value, and sensory qualities.
Neo-Pure organic pasteurization helps the low-moisture food industry innovate and satisfy consumer demands by delivering a validated food safety solution that preserves the distinct nutrition, taste, flavors, aromas, and texture of food.
Neo-Pure provides food safety solutions for a wide range of low-moisture foods. Every day at Agri-Neo, we talk about making more foods safe. We look forward to solving more food safety challenges through joint R&D efforts with industry stakeholders.
Nuts are an essential part of today’s healthy diet. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and powerful plant compounds that can benefit your health in many ways.
Unlike heat-based methods that solely rely on high temperatures, we study every nut thoroughly to understand its natural properties to determine the optimal control parameters. This is how we achieve the highest food safety level while maintaining each nut’s raw nutritional and sensory qualities.
An ideal pasteurization solution keeps seeds alive and viable. Heat is known to damage the germination properties of seeds. Neo-Pure pasteurized seeds remain viable, and we are proud to be solving the food safety challenges in the sprouting industry.
In addition to maintaining seed viability, Neo-Pure is optimized to pasteurize mucilaginous seeds such as chia and flax, minimizing agglomeration due to clumping.
Whole and ancient grains are among the latest healthy food trends. As demand for these healthy ingredients grows rapidly, consumer and regulatory expectations on food safety also rise to the same standards as the other raw foods. Unlike fumigation and irradiation, organic food products pasteurized with Neo-Pure remain organic. Neo-Pure is quickly becoming the preferred pasteurization solution for the grains industry.
