In forming SSUSA, one of our goals was to provide superior organic pathogen reduction. Our unique technology is specifically advantageous for aromatic products, such as herbs and botanicals, that are very sensitive to heat & moisture. Our process has been optimized to minimize the negative impacts found in traditional treatments on flavor, color vibrancy and moisture content.

SSUSA was formed in 2009 in response to the FDA’s ban on sterilizing raw nutraceuticals with ethylene oxide and iodizing radiation. We wanted to provide a safe and superior continuous heat/steam treatment for both dry & wet food products that would reduce or eliminate contamination of delicate ingredients in both cut & powdered forms.
