Screened roe technology. Food additive (preservative) Varex-7

To give the consumers of salted screened roe of Alaska pollock, halibut, pike and many other species of marine and freshwater fish a chance to enjoy the natural flavour and nutritional value of "live" product in its entirety, we have developed a technology that makes it possible to store roe up to 10 months at +2° to +4°C without sterilization or pasteurization.

The advantages of our technology

Positive storage temperature of finished product.

Extended shelf life: up to 10 months.

Roe does not undergo pasteurization or sterilization.

High sensory characteristics and natural flavour of salted roe are preserved throughout the shelf life.

Safe food additive Varex-7 is used (does not contain hazardous ingredients: urotropine, sodium benzoate (E211), parabens, antibiotics, etc.).

Varex-7 performs a complex effect: effectively slows down the processes of spoilage and the appearance of undesirable after-tastes (of oxidized fat, bitterness, etc.), ensures the microbiological safety of salted screened roe.

Reduced salinity (3.0-5.0%) of finished product.

Easy-to-use and does not require changing the traditional technological process of salted screen roe manufacturing.

Specifications "Salted screened roe" are applicable to salted screened grained roe of various families and species of fish: ordinary fish, cod fishes (gadidae family), flatfish, purplehead (Notothenia purpuriceps), herring, mackerel, bonito, horse-mackerel, grenadier, lumpsucker, capelin, gobies, whitefish, carp and others, with the exception of sturgeon and salmon.

The content of Varex-7 is regulated by sorbic acid only. Residual content of sorbic acid in finished product manufactured with our food additive is not more than 0.2%.

Foof additive Varex-7 is a well-established preservative for pike, Alaska pollock, halibut and other species of fish.
