    Advantages Of Dhruhi Sterile

    Dhruhi Sterile - continuous steam sterilizing system for effective decontamination of spices, herbs, vegetables and seeds.

    The continuous steam sterilizing process results in simultaneous reduction of the microbiological load and the ample inactivation of enzymes in spices, vegetables, herbs and seeds. These raw materials are heavily contaminated with yeasts, moulds, enterobacteraceae and spore-formers from the soil because of the simple treatments and the drying at low temperatures in the countries of origin.

    Sometimes ideal conditions for growth in foodstuffs can easily lead to spoilage. The presence of pathogens, e.g. salmonella can never be excluded despite frequent checking and was the main reason for sterilization and irradiation in the past.

    Steam is a most ideal gas as it is non toxic, it is cheap and there is unlimited supply.

    The continuous steam sterilizing process offers the following advantages:

    • Fastest possible way of product heating to an exact preset temperature.
    • Steam condenses on the product and provides the water activity required for effective sterilization while the steam that condensed on the product surface will protect the product against burning. Hence the system concept complies with the condition that the product is subjected to the minimum heat load for adequate decontamination with a minimum adverse effect on flavor, color and loss of volatile oil.
