Or when a bit of technology combines gluttony, gourmet tastes with health. It gives Ulti.
Franck Bacot created Ulti back in 1986. This technology enthusiast uses high pressure cold or pascalisation. A process that preserves vitamins because, once the fruit juice in bottles, they are immersed for a few seconds in a tank filled with water, compressed by a pump to stabilize them. However, vitamins do not fear compression, while they are partly lost during a classic pasteurization
The fruit juice is extracted from the inside of the fruit. As the juice separates from the it, it is protected from the outside atmosphere. As soon as it is bottled: just 4 seconds separate the juice extraction from the bottling. Then the bottles are closed and dated. The manufacture of the “Fresh range” is completed. The shelf life of fruit juice is 8 days. The manufacturing process of the “Freshly squeezed range” goes through a final step: the bottles are put for a few moments at a pressure equivalent to several times that of the seabed. This process allows to stabilize the juice whose life span is 16 days.
Located on the outskirts of Paris, the manufacturing unit is capable of producing 1,500 liters of fruit juice per hour. In 2005, Ulti produced more than 2 million liters of fresh fruit juice.
