Global High Pressure Processing Market: Overview
High pressure processing (HPP) is a technology which is used as a natural option for processing an extensive range of food products. It is a freezing pasteurization technique in which the final packed products are introduced into a container and then the container is subjected to the maximum level of isostatic pressure put by water. The high pressure removes the bacteria, yeasts, moulds, parasites and viruses present in food, extending the life of the product and guaranteeing the safety of food. It eliminates the need for thermal degradation.
HPP is a natural and environmentally friendly process that helps in maintaining the characteristics of the ingredient such as nutrients and the flavor. This technology meets the demands related to thermal methods, removes the vitamin and changes the flavor of the food while HPP maintain the taste as well as the vitamins which are very essential for the consumer. HPP technology is put into practice by seafood & meat processors to satisfy the desired softness and extract the meat from crustaceans.
Global High Pressure Processing Market: Drivers and Restraints
The main drivers of the high pressure processing market include the fact that it meets the requirement for freshness and minimal processing as it avoids chemical additives, requires less energy than other technologies, extended shelf life due to wider product distribution and results in fewer product returns, require less processing time and processing could be completed in final packaging which avoids post-processing tempering and contamination. The main factor that is restraining the growth of this market includes sterilization and pasteurization is relatively expensive compared with traditional heat transfer method. The main opportunities in this market are increasing the awareness of HPP to accentuate its advantages & generate the demand and different functions of high pressure technology.
