OSS, The natural way

to treat your products

Most natural products need to be disinfected, pasteurized or sterilized and while several methods exist to treat these products, such as irradiation, ethylene oxide, ozone and UV, the only internationally recognized and accepted natural method is the "Organic Sterilization System (OSS)”, which efficiently steams and vacuum seals the products.

The new food safety laws are increasingly demanding when it comes to acceptable microbiological levels and even ban certain sterilization methods.

 

• Laws on food security and food safety in almost all countries, including Peru, are increasingly demanding when it comes to acceptable microbial levels for nutritional supplements, natural products, condiments, spices and/or prepared or ‘unprepared’ foods in general.

 

• The current microbial requirements governing nutritional supplements and medicinal plants are as follows:

JAPAN

Total plate count

< 3000 cfu/g

  Mold and yeast

< 300 cfu/g

Escherichia Coli

Absent/25g

Salmonella SP

Absent/25g

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Total plate count

< 10,000

  Mold and yeast

< 500

Escherichia Coli

Absent/25g

Salmonella SP

Absent/25g

There are 3 phases to this process

1

PREPARATION

 

Air is extracted from the chamber and prepared for the injection of pure saturated steam.

2

TREATMENT

 

Pure saturated steam is injected at the programmed temperature for between 1–20 minutes, thus avoiding the excessive penetration of steam and humidity.

The temperature of the treatment may vary from 65°C (disinfection) to 121°C (sterilization) depending on the initial microbial charge and the clients’ requirements.

3

DRYING

 

Drying begins once the injected steam is extracted and the product is treated at a low temperature.
