High pressure processing of Innocent vegetable juices
Innocent Drinks partnered with us for support in investigating how
high pressure processing (HPP)
could be applied to their vegetable juices to improve quality whilst maintaining safety. They wanted to determine if HPP would be sufficient
to destroy the types of microorganisms that can limit the shelf-life of this type
of product, and if any microorganisms surviving after processing would be able to grow within the intended storage conditions and shelf-life.
Our team were able to advise as to the target microorganisms to assess and on appropriate packaging, treatment
conditions and potential effects on the product, as well as assist in new product development.
For the analysis, we made use of our pilot HPP plant that is situated in our class 2 microbiology laboratory (where
challenge tests can be performed on certain pathogens).
As a result of our expertise and facilities, we were able to provide Innocent Drinks with the knowledge that the HPP
processing was effective and that the products were microbiologically stable.
