The Ideal Alternative

The Ziel process is a physical, chemical-free, new method applicable to both conventional and organic commodities. It is both non-additive and residue-free.

Contrary to conventional thermal processing, RF heats volumetrically and is able to penetrate certain types of packaging materials, thus providing opportunities for effective sanitation while minimizing or avoiding re-contamination.

Unlike other chemical-free alternatives, the RF process has minimal effect on the flavor or texture of the commodities, and minimal effect on the nutritional value.

Ziel is operating on the basis of new applications of RF power in the food and agriculture areas developed at the University of California, Davis, patented (US patent # 6,638,475) and licensed.
