JBT is highlighting the combined roasting and pasteurization capabilities of a solution specially developed for the almond industry – the JBT Stein JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System (JSP-I) – at this month’s edition of the annual California almond industry showcase, The Almond Conference, which takes place in Sacramento until December 12.
JBT’s Stein JSP-I Jet Stream® Pasteurization System Compact delivers a pathogen-free product without altering the essential raw-like flavor and appearance. Ensuring gentle product handling with no skin damage, the JSP-I has been developed for high temperature, short-time pasteurization with a reliable, repeatable and consistent reduction of harmful bacteria.
However, at this year’s conference, JBT will be highlighting another inbuilt capability – roasting – which will help customers meet international demand without having the switch systems. “We are opening up the capabilities of the machine, including recently testing roasting nuts for a customer through the pasteurizer, meaning they can carry out pasteurization and roasting in the same machine,” Harlan explains.
“Some customers want to be able to sell roasted almonds – they want roast color and roast flavor to the nuts – and we are able to do that with the JSP-I, whether that’s the small compact version or the large size, they have the same capability.”
JBT will be exhibiting at Booth 505 at The Almond Conference, which takes place at the Cal Expo center, Sacramento, California, until December 12.
