Innovative peppercorn treatments
October 31, 2022
Make D.I.C. your best innovation asset, and widen your market opportunities with new food textures and colors, optimize your processes and control your food safety.
Running some R&D on fresh peppercorn from Vietnam, one process can lead to several applications depending on your needs:
• Replace your high cost freeze-drying process with a D.I.C. + hot air drying combination to get a dried puffed green pepper
• Deactivate enzymes on the fresh material, avoid oxidation and accelerate your drying
• Add a food sterilization step to your standard sun drying process, and extend shelf life. Invisible on the final product but definitely noticeable on your microbiological analysis
