With GEA CookStar you have the flexibility to produce both smoked and non-smoked products in one oven. You can add value to your food products with a wide variety of smoke flavors, adjusted to your needs. Through the combination of condensed natural smoke, two-phase nozzle technology and integration with the GEA CookStar air flow and heating concept, it becomes a smoke process. Products, therefore, can be considered smoked. And since there are no unhealthy residues such as tar, ash and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH), they may be designated ‘Clean Label’. The products are healthier compared to conventional smoking methods. There are significant process benefits too because the in-line process cuts smoking times from hours to minutes compared to the traditional batch processes. It also produces more consistent product quality than batch smoking systems.
