Customer case

Blanche and chill carefully

About the client

Biggest herb producer in France with factories in Spain as well.

The Challenge

To blanch and chill chive as carefully as possible due to it is very fragile in regards to temperature and time. The challenge was to keep shape, color and taste while achieving a germ reduction.

The solution

A Cabinplant Forced Steam blancher with ambient air cooling.

The result

The Forced Steam blancher turned out to be the perfect solution to achieve all the wanted parameters. Despite a very short treatment time, we managed to achieve a very uniform heat treatment of the chive due to the Forced Steam technology.
