How Does High Pressure Processing Work?

HPPing food involves using extreme pressures – to the tune of 87,000 lbs per square inch – to render foods safe and ready to be sold.

Foods prepared through High Pressure Processing typically have a longer shelf-life, a fresher taste profile, retain more vitamins, and are preservative-free.

These benefits can have a positive impact on food companies, retailers, and consumers.

The Science Behind High Pressure Processing

There have been dozens of studies performed on HPP techniques in recent years with more cropping up all the time.

We’ve collected these studies and put them all in one place to keep you in the know.

What Pathogens Does HPP Destroy?

The extreme pressures of HPP renders food-borne pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E.Coli inert and harmless.

Which Companies Use High Pressure Processing?

High Pressure Processing is used by food companies across a variety of industries from juices, lunch meats, guacamole, poultry, meal kits, hummus, and more.
