Originally used in the medtech sector, Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) is now breaking new grounds in the food industry. PEF is a method for processing cells by means of brief pulses of a strong electric field. ScandiNova’s high voltage pulse modulators are making this method possible.
How does it work? The electric field perforates the cell walls of the food, creating micro holes that allow asparagine and reducing sugars to be washed out of the potato in cold water wash. In most cases, eliminating/reducing the need to blanch in the preparation of products prior to further processing.
