Ultra-High Pressure Processing Eliminates Salmonella in Fresh Tomatoes

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent Salmonella contamination in fresh tomatoes has resulted in a nationwide concern for consumers unfamiliar with food-safe processing technologies. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has advised that tomatoes packaged commercially via heat processing are still safe to eat. Unfortunately heat changes the flavor and texture of fresh produce and is not viable for refrigerated salsas or pico-style dip products with tomatoes.

An alternative to heat processing, featuring the same benefits -- but without the negatives -- is Ultra-High Pressure Food Processing (UHP or HPP). A leader in food safety, Fresherized Foods(TM), advises that ultra-high pressure processing (essentially a cold pasteurization process via high-pressure water) eliminates most food pathogens found in raw produce -- including fresh tomatoes. http://www.fresherizedfoods.com

Food safety experts recognize HPP globally as an effective preservation solution -- as effective as cooking or heating -- in elimination of food pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria and E. coli.

High pressure processing eliminates Salmonella and other bacteria in about 3 minutes. Traditional processing for tomatoes takes from 10-45 minutes. The negative effects of high temperatures on fresh produce are eliminated when pressure is used, allowing HPP processed foods to retain nutrients, natural taste, texture and color. And, because the organisms causing foods to spoil have been reduced or eliminated, foods stay fresher longer.

Globally in 2006, approximately 55 companies used 91 HPP machines for food production -- 56 HPP machines are located in the Americas.

Initial testing using high pressure technology dates back to the late 1800's. Americas use of HPP began in 1997
