High-pressure processing is food preservation and sterilization technique that does not require heat or chemicals. It is a non-thermal food preservation process developed to substitute the traditional chemical and thermal process of preserving food items. High-pressure processing is used to preserve food items that have been sealed in their final package. This technique is the best alternative for the ancient chemical and thermal preservation techniques as it does not alter the taste or flavor of food. It can also be referred to as Pascalization or bridgmanization, or ultra-high pressure (UHP).
The application of high-pressure procession started in Japan and other parts of Asia in the 1990s. It was initially used to preserve beverages and confectionery items like juice, jams, and jellies. But with the present surge in demand for natural products, the technique is now widely used in the preservation of virtually all food items such as salad, fish, meat, yogurt, cakes, and many other products. The features of high-pressure processing have positively impacted its market globally as individuals’ demand is growing exponentially. The global high-pressure processing market is anticipated to grow tremendously over the forecast period.
Rising demand for naturally preserved food coupled with consumers’ busy lifestyle are major factors driving the global high pressure food processing market forward and it’s expected that this will continue over the foreseeable period. High pressure processing can also be used in the preservation of rice and grains. It helps in the elimination of the allergen protein found in rice and grains thereby making the food allergen free.
High Pressure Processing (HPP) for Rice and Grain Market Growth Driven by Increasing Demand for Natural Food
The growing demand for natural and safe food items in conjunction with increasing population size is the primary factor driving global high-pressure processing for rice and grains. Since HPP can break down the allergic protein content in rice and grains, thereby making it safe for consumption, the food and beverage industry is employing HPP services in its production process.
Aside from the allergen removal properties, high-pressure processing also helps shelf-life extension, quality improvement, and pathogen elimination. These factors have also facilitated the growth of the industry globally. Furthermore, to meet consumers’ demand for safe and natural food products in the 21st century, the global food processing industry focuses on developing innovative techniques like the HPP technique to preserve food.
High Pressure Processing (HPP) for Rice and Grain Restraint
One of the major challenges faced by HPP for rice and grain markets is the high cost of HPP machines. Manufacturers in the industry can't afford to buy HPP machines unless they merge, and this will hamper the growth of the market as cooperation might be a problem.
High Pressure Processing (HPP) for Rice and Grain Market: Region-wise Analysis
Japan and other countries in the Asia Pacific are significant players in the global high-pressure processing for rice and grain market since the region is a major producer of rice and grains. The rise in population size of individuals consuming rice and grains within the Asia Pacific has accelerated the growth of the market.
North America is the second-largest market for HPP as the United States FDA has accepted the use of high-pressure processing techniques in grains and rice. Besides, the rise in demand for naturally preserved food has created a surge in demand for HPP within the region. Other regions like the Middle East and Africa are still in the nascent stage of development for high-pressure processing for rice and grain market.
