How does Truitt seal in flavors and goodness to make foods shelf-stable?
Imagine the simple science behind a classic pressure cooker. It uses steam heat and pressure in a sealed vessel to cook and preserve fresh ingredients making them safe to store in a pantry. Our process is not that different! Our 27 industrial size rotational retorts use very hot water and pressure to thermally cook soups, sauces and entrées packed in convenient pouches, trays and bowls. This thermal processing in a state-of-the-art retort machine eliminates microbial organisms that can cause food spoilage, resulting in custom-prepared foods that are safe to store without refrigeration for the shelf life of the product. With retort processing, there’s no need to use any preservatives to seal in flavor, nutrition and quality.
