H2O Express Steam
Cosmed Group’s patented H2O Express technology is an all-natural, certified organic alternative to irradiation and other pasteurization technologies. Products including milk whey, tree nuts, herbs, and spices which may be contaminated with human pathogens have been successfully pasteurized with this technology.
Our process is performed in vacuum chamber where a precise dose of steam ensures careful control of product temperature and moisture. Where more aggressive, in-line pasteurization processes damage sensitive foods such as herbs, nuts and spices, H2O Express is highly effective without compromising product quality. By treating products in the final packaging the process ensures that your products are safe and free of pathogens when they are delivered to the marketplace.
Approved since 2007 by the Almond Board of California for treating shelled and in-shell almonds in boxes, corrugated tri-walls, plywood bins and super sacks, the process has been carefully validated to demonstrate its effectiveness against pathogens such as salmonella. It can also be used to treat products contaminated with listeria monocytogenes and e-coli as well as fumigate agricultural products to eliminate beetles, moths and other pests.
