Using technology developed for the medical device and pharmaceutical industries our propylene oxide pasteurization process, PPO Express, is an improved method for treating herbs, spices and nutmeats.

The process yields a 2 log greater lethality on many products than conventional PPO pasteurization and dramatically reduces post treatment aeration time. Cosmed Group’s proprietary process reduces the time required to pre-heat almonds and other nuts by several days.

Propylene oxide is approved for use on spices, nutmeats, dried vegetables and cocoa powder.
