SPICES AND DEHYDRATED VEGETABLES ARE NOT SAFE FROM PATHOGENS

Spices and dehydrated vegetables are raw ingredients that can harbor harmful pathogens such as Salmonella and E. coli. They are often added to foods that will not undergo further cooking, and as such, are consumed as ready-to-eat products. Many of these foods are imported from countries with varying levels of food safety standards. Recently, the U.S. FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is calling on processors of spices and dehydrated vegetables to establish preventive food safety controls for both domestically produced and imported foods.

NEO-PURE IS EFFECTIVE ON A WIDE VARIETY OF SPICES AND DEHYDRATED VEGETABLES

Spices and dehydrated vegetables come in a great variety of types and forms. As such, industry needs a food safety solution that works effectively on all foods. Due to the delicate nature of these foods, heat-based methods often do not work as they degrade critical quality attributes such as color, volatile oils, and texture. Irradiation is not an ideal option as it cannot be used for organic foods, relies on third parties for processing, and can be expensive.

Neo-Pure organic pasteurization can be applied on a wide range of spices and dehydrated vegetables without impacting the natural flavor, color, and aroma of the food. With Neo-Pure, processors of spices and dehydrated vegetables companies can bring food safety in-house, become FSMA-compliant, and achieve cost savings.
