What is Vacuum Frying?

Vacuum frying, a unique food processing method, involves frying under low pressure, preserving nutrients, minimizing oil absorption, retaining natural flavor and color, and reducing harmful compound formation. It offers healthier snacks, longer shelf life, and versatility in processing various foods, resulting in more nutritious and appealing chips.

Major health benefits compared to Open Fry Method?

Oil is heated below 90°C to preserve its properties and prevent toxic compound formation. Low temperature and absence of air maintain the product's color, texture, and flavor. This process leads to 50-60% lower fat absorption compared to open frying. Additionally, the low fat and water activity extend the product's shelf life.

    About Us

    Karanth's Foods PVT. LTD. is an ISO 22000:2018 certified firm founded by us, a group of young people from the local farming community who have pooled their skills and knowledge in a variety of sectors.

    Agriculture, the sole source of income in the heart of Karnataka's Western Ghats, is mostly harmed by a lack of value addition to agro goods.

    We have attempted to fill this hole and restore the local hoary ethos after becoming aware of the ground realities.

Fruit Treat was founded as a manifestation of the 30-year-old's commitment to promoting healthier choices without compromising on taste.
