LIQUAM® equipment

A harmless non-thermal alternative for honey processing

It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties: Honey effectively treat respiratory diseases (bronchitis, asthma), strengths the immune system promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, expectorant and anti-inflammatory.

To facilitate handling/packing and assure consumer acceptance, most raw honey destined to retail is often pasteurized before its commercialization to delay its natural crystallization

Raw honey is heated at 75-80ºC for 1-2 minutes to melt the sugar crystals, but such elevated temperature also causes serious degradation to heat-sensitive nutritional properties and beneficial substances that have categorized honey as a healthy medicinal food throughout the centuries.

Thermal treatments degrade honey and turn it to a much poorer product.

With LIQUAM®, acoustic sonication is reached into the bulk of honey to break-down the sugar micro-crystals present without increasing the temperature above 55ºC, thus retaining all nutraceutical and organoleptic properties of honey.

LIQUAM® introduces a harmless non-thermal alternative for honey processing.

Raw honey is more than just sweetener, is a 'functional food'
