915 Labs, Centennial, Colo.,introduced its new microwave sterilization system, a transformative technology for high-quality, natural and additive-free packaged food.

Using the company’s Microwave Assisted Thermal Sterilization (MATS) systems, packaged food is simultaneously immersed in pressurized hot water and heated by microwaves at a frequency of 915 megahertz (MHz), which eliminates pathogens and spoilage microorganisms in a fraction of the time with minimal heat damage to the food.

MATS processed food offers a wide range of potential uses apart from branded consumer packaged foods, including ready-to-eat meals for armed forces and rations distributed by humanitarian agencies to third-world countries plagued by famine and food waste.
