Heat and Control - E-FLO™ Electroporation System

The patent protected E-FLO Electroporation System provides significant product improvement in chip crunch, taste and texture as well as reduction in acrylamide formation and oil content.

Pulse Electric Field Processing (PEF) perforates the cell walls of the potato creating micro holes that allow asparagine and reducing sugars to be washed out of the potato in a cold water wash. In most cases, eliminating or reducing the need to blanch the product.

Higher yield and reduced processing costs are also key benefits of this technology with other vegetable applications possible.

Ideal for potato chip, French fry formed potato products and other root vegetable processing.
