Bucher Unipektin uses freeze drying cabinets and continuous freeze belt dryers to process food to an extremely high standard.
Freeze Drying Applications
Drying of frozen fruit pieces or whole berries, continuously or by batch.
Freeze drying is the least stressful method to reduce humidity in products. And with Zeodration, any volatile aromas can be optimally preserved.
Processing vegetable pieces for dry, instant products.
Freeze dried vegetables are quickly wettable and therefore ideal for instant products such as soups. Using Zeodration, volatile aroma components are optimally preserved.
Fish and seafood
Freeze drying of fish and seafood for instant products or pet food.
Pieces of fish or seafood are preserved better by freeze drying than by other drying methods. Zeodration preserves any volatile aromas.
The freeze drying of meat pieces for instant products or pet food.
Freeze dried pieces of meat are ideal for long shelf life, to be used in instant dishes or as pet food. These pieces show good wettability through hot water, with Zeodration used to preserve any volatile aromas.
Freeze dried pet food enables strong flavour profiles and long shelf life.
Sometimes granulated, these freeze dried pieces are ideal for long shelf life due to their low water content. The pieces preserve volatile flavours better than other drying methods, especially using the Zeodration technique.
