Seeds, Nuts & Spices

Holmach has a respected position as an authority on the subject of spice sterilisation. Chris Holland, Managing Director, recently gave a keynote speech at the International Spice Congress in Goa, concerning the requirement of decontamination herbs and spices prior to use as food ingredients. Indeed, current interest in natural ingredients such as nuts, seeds and raw spices validates this foresight, with frequent food recalls due to under-processing.

Holmach has worked on a number of projects using revolutionary technology for the pasteurisation of dry ingredients such as nuts, seeds and spices in an accurate and homogenous manner.

For spice pastes, nut butters and herb purées, Roboqbo provides a cut-cook-cool vessel capable of creating vividly coloured foodstuffs with distinct organic flavours. The Qbo line can also pasteurise and cool, which is ideal when handling ingredients such as raw sesame seeds when making tahini oil for hummus - all of which can be made on a single Qbo unit. 
Holmach also offers a solution for processing and cooling nut pastes with a premium scraped surface heat exchanger, enabling clients to extend shelf life on products such as peanut satay sauce.
