Ethtecs® Biomass Chamber Growing System:
Our plant is equipped with the unique Ethtecs® Biomass chamber growing system. The Ethtecs® Biomass chamber is a secure controlled growing environment where we control all inputs in the growing process to optimize growing conditions and minimize the potential for contamination of the products.
The Ethtecs® production system gives a level of control over the growing process that is not available to traditional production methods.
The Ethtecs® system is a compact industrial process, requiring no arable land and less than 5% of the water commonly used to irrigate similar crops.
The process of freeze-drying the fruit and vegetables is the key to the success of the company, allowing the product range to retain their nutrients, minerals and flavors, just as if you were buying them off the shelf at your local supermarket.
The most important point of difference from other drying technologies is the fact that the gentle freeze dry process preserves the cellular structure of the fruit and vegetables and therefore locks in all the nutritional value.
The growing, production, and freeze drying processes are optimized to retain the naturally occurring bioactive compounds of the fruits and vegetables, in an environment which is free of herbicides, pesticides, hormones, artificial growth promoters, and genetic modifications.
