FCD’s Steristep System preserves Vitamins in vegetable powders
Recent testing on Steristep (2015) showed that heat treatment to reduce pathogens did not alter vitamins in powdered vegetables.
A short thermal process at atmospheric pressure had little impact on the degradation of vitamins.
Pasteurization on the samples was achieved repeatedly on this Broccoli powder.
Further research is being carried to examine other herbal products as well as spices. FCD is also looking at other nutrients that can be retained: enzymes, fatty acids, etc.
