The co.’s Gentle Motion retort is the first high capacity, high throughput retort specifically designed for pouches and semi-rigid trays. Because the retort shortens retort cycle time, the quality, i.e., flavor of the product is optimized, the co. states. The improvement to flavor comes largely from the prevention of overcooked and/or scorched products. The gentle motion process also helps with the hydration of starchy products such as beans, rice and other high-starch foods. Depending on the product being retorted, cycle time may be reduced from 5 to 40-percent. Reduced cycle time also helps to decrease energy consumption while increasing overall retort room throughput.
