1 Ultra High Pressure (UHP) What is it? How does it work? During UHP, foods are placed under 87,000 psi. This UHP process kills micro-organisms by interrupting their cellular functions. They can’t take the pressure! Even better, UHP works without the use of heat that can damage the taste, texture, and nutritional value of the food. It’s like “Cold pasteurization”. Since spoilage organisms are also destroyed, many foods will actually stay fresher longer, which is good news for consumers. But... Why aren’t the foods crushed? UHP is based on “Hydrostatic pressure” which is equal pressure from every direction. It doesn’t create shear force to distort food particles. Thus, any moist food such as a whole Avocado can be exposed to these very high pressures without being crushed. One of the unique advantages of UHP is that pressure transmission is instantaneous and uniform. It is effective throughout the food items, from the surface through to the center! The process also retards the browning process, thus guacamole stays greener longer. FRESH AVOCADO HALVES Calavo Code: day Shelf Life from the date of production 48 individually packed Mexican Hass Avocado Halves Perfect Portion control for salads, sandwich's, & garnish Packed in a partitioned case to prevent shipping damage Just open & serve. Save time, labor, and money. All natural, no preservatives, consistent flavor & pricing.
