WHAT IS RE­TORTABLE PACK­AG­ING?

Progressive Grocer (India) - - Ready To Eat -

A re­tort pouch or re­tortable pouch is a type of food pack­ag­ing made from a lam­i­nate of flex­i­ble plas­tic and me­tal foils. It al­lows the ster­ile pack­ag­ing of a wide va­ri­ety of food and drinks han­dled by asep­tic pro­cess­ing, and is used as an al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional in­dus­trial can­ning meth­ods. The food in­side is cooked in a sim­i­lar way to pres­sure cook­ing. This process re­li­ably kills all com­monly oc­cur­ring micro­organ­isms, pre­vent­ing it from spoil­ing. The food-grade, Fda-ap­proved ma­te­ri­als used to con­struct this type of pack­ag­ing un­dergo a ster­il­iza­tion process that ex­tends the shelf life of the prod­uct in­side while pre­serv­ing all nu­tri­tional con­sti­tu­tion of the food item.
