In Spain, the canning industry is an ancient one.It reached the territory by hands of the Phoenicians. Thanks to the intense trade that took place between Carthage and Rome, having means of food conservation, was a necessity. As one might imagine, it was a very rudimentary process as the first canseamershad not yet been created.
Today, canning remains essential, but since the invention of the first tin in 1731, canseamers have undergone very important changes, and today more than ever, they are crucialfor the food industry sector.
What are preserves?
The term preserve is defined as the process in which food is subjected to manipulation with the aim of extending its shelf life. The idea is that the food in question can last longer in storage, but without losing its freshness, quality and nutritional value.
Main conservation processes
- Drying and dehydrating
This method of preservation is one of the oldest, when can seamers were notyet on the market. The water that food contains is one of the main causes of its decomposition.
When some food is subjected to a dehydration process most of the water is removed, thus reducing the chances of it decomposing.
- Salting and Smoking
These methods have also been used for a long time, in general, it is a process in which salt is added to the food, usually meats or fish, to prolong its shelf life. When salt is added, in addition to preventing germs from proliferating, drying of the food in question also occurs.
- Canning and bottling
Theseare the most widely used food preservation techniques in the present day. This is because they are very useful and versatile, as theycan be appliedto almost any type of food. When food is cannedit is vacuum sealed, this provides you withthe assurance that the decomposition process of the food will be prolonged.
Thanks to the vacuum packaging process, which is used in almost all canseaming machines,the oxygen is removed from the container. This means that all organismsare eliminated, which reduces the process of food breaking down.
As for bottling, the process is similar to vacuumpackaging,but in this case the food is placed in bottles or other glass packaging, and not in cans.
