Technology from which everything will start

An innovative method of drying developed by PAULA Ingredients technologists.

A unique drying technology that brings extraordinary results in an exceptionally short time and low (but, most importantly, positive) temperature of, among others, fruit and vegetables. It allows a very high level of nutritional value in the final product to be maintained. Dried products regain their natural texture, taste and smell in the rehydration process, depending on the raw materials used.

9 facts, worth remembering

Development is a continuous searching.

From the very beginning, when the idea for MIRVAC® technology was born, we set ourselves the goal of developing a drying method that would transform traditional products into even better ones – the ones that consumers expect in the finished products of our partners.

SAFE

Microbiologically clean water, thanks to the use of a vacuum in the drying technology, boils as low as at 20’C, which makes it possible to effectively eliminate microorganisms.

CONTROLLED

Verified for years by experience and numerous audits. Controlled at every stage of production, from the raw material to the final goods.

MODERN

The drying process is the shortest from those applied on the industrial scale – it takes only 2-3 hours. It allows healthy products to be obtained, of high quality and very good flavour.

INNOVATIVE

Drying in low, but positive temperatures which are not used in any other drying method.

UNIQUE

As compared to the freeze drying technology, the more advanced and modern MIRVAC® technology allows you to get: better taste, appearance, texture, crispness and natural & long-lasting colour corresponding to fresh fruit or vegetables.

EFFECTIVE

It allows very high levels of ingredients and the nutrients (e.g. fibre) to be maintained.

FUNCTIONAL

It create products containing healthy ingredients / components e.g. vitamins, minerals, or fibre in quantities significantly higher than the raw materials used for production (fresh vegetables and fruit). Additionally, by combining selected MIRVAC® products with probiotics, we obtain synbiotics.

USED ALL OVER THE WORLD

Used by clients in 36 countries worldwide, enjoying great popularity and recognized due to its advantages.

EXAMINED AT MANY STAGES

Starting from a time of strict quality inspections of the raw material, also in the scope of pesticides, and at the end of the process, for conformity to even more detailed parameters. The tests are conducted in our internal, modern laboratories and in independent, accredited laboratories.
