As with all agricultural products, herbs and spices are exposed in the field to many germs conveyed by soil, wind and animals. Over the years, we have developed various technologies which, in a very gentle way, greatly reduce the total germ counts of herbs and spices, while optimally preserving their colour and aroma.
Pasteurised, liquid and paste-form herb and spice preparations
The LiquidControl (LC) procedure allows the food industry to use herb and spice preparations with a greatly reduced germ count. The gentle pre-heating ensures high quality in the end product. Seasoning intensity and a fresh colour are retained without adding preservatives. Customised LC products are delivered in aseptic containers with an online dosing device.

A combination with the Herbafresh procedure for herbs guarantees an optimum retention of subtle herb notes and fresh green colour.
MicroControl technology is based on the heating of spices in a humid water-vapour atmosphere. This gives an almost complete reduction of the total germ-count in spices, but without negative effects on the value-determining spice components, or the spices' flavour and appearance.
The germ-reduced products can be used in many different foods, and guarantee a longer shelf-life without any use of preservatives.
Germ-reduced, colour and aroma-stable herbs
Our very own Herbafresh procedure allows fresh herbs to be gently stabilised and their shelf life extended by means of taste-neutral ingredients and salt.
