A customer asks us if it is possible to pasteurise the content of glass jars using the SmartVide, and asks for advice on the matter.
It is possible to pasteurise in glass jars using the SmartVide. The technique is the same as the traditional method, except that the temperature can be controlled at all times, which makes it possible to preserve the properties of the product to pasteurise.
We recommend using jars that can be vacuum sealed for best performance. Once the jars are closed, place them in the tank of water and adjust the time needed. This will depend on the ingredient you wish to pasteurise.
The recommended temperature is from 65ºC to 68ºC.
Once the process has finished, it is advisable to lower the temperatures as soon as possible. Thus, we achieve a professional pasteurisation process.
