WHAT IS RETORT TECHNOLOGY?

 

 What is the Retort Process?

 

1.Food is prepared raw and then sealed into the Retort pouch.
 
2.Pouch is then heated to 240-250°F (116-121°C) for several minutes under high pressure, inside a retort or autoclave machines. (similar to pressure cooking).
 
3.Process reliably kills all commonly occurring microorganisms (particularly clostridium botulinum), preventing it from  spoiling.
 
4.Packaging process is very similar to  canning, except that the package itself is flexible.
 
5.The 4 layered lamination structure doesn't allow permeation of gases from outside into the pouch.
 

What is a Retort pouch?

A retort pouch is a 4 layer bonded plastic and metal foil laminate pouch. The weight of a pouch is lighter than regular cans or bottles, and the energy required to convert is less than that of metals, paper and glass.
