PRESERVING
The final part of any food process is the preservation of the product to maintain its highest quality until it is consumed.  Limas produces two systems by which chilled products can be preserved, the choice of which depends on the required shelf-life and the end-user market. For short shelf-life fresh peeled potatoes – the Limas Combi-Wash. For pre-cooked and chilled, vacuumed packed vegetables – Limas Rapid Cook & Chill system.

LIMAS RAPID COOK & CHILL SYSTEM
Limas Rapid Cook & Chill preserves vacuum-packed products such as potatoes and other root vegetables or fruits by boiling and cooling after packing.

A biological integrity approaching sterility is achieved in the pack by rapidly increasing the temperature to almost 100°C and then cooling it immediately to the chilled storage temperature.

The rapid increase in temperature also inactivates the enzymes giving a very high quality and appearance which is maintained throughout the shelf-life.

As the product is pre-cooked it only requires re-heating by the consumer ready for eating.
