Company's jumbo Shaka® retorts allow food manufacturers to improve taste, texture and appearance of their products across a wide array of containers and formulations. These systems use high-speed agitation to rapidly and equally distribute heat during the sterilization process. Depending on the agitation rate, container and food, sterilization time can be cut by up to 90%, lowering heat degradation. Research shows that in some instances food from a Shaka process has the same qualities as food processed by UHT aseptic technology. Anything with a viscosity allowing movement within the container when agitated in a retort will sterilize quickly. This includes soups, sauces, ready meals, dips, spreads, baby food and pet foods. Rigid, semi-rigid and flexible packaging can be sterilized in one of these systems.
