Super Clean Food

Tabii is a food sterilizing and washing unit that gives storage life with a drying option. The focus of the project is to come up with solution to combat future water shortages and the ‘Turkish habit’ of food drying. Hence the unit works as a sterilizing, washing, drying, and dehydrating appliance.

How it Works:

Tabii washes the fruit and vegetables by the ionized water for total sterilization with minimum water usage. Ionized water kills more than 99.9% of harmful germs by oxygenated mixture of positively and negatively charged nano-bubles. The appliance makes it possible to choose consecutive processes like ‘wash and dry’ or ‘wash and dehydrate’. Drying and dehydration is achieved using ultrasound technology. Ultrasound dehydration permits the removal of moisture content from solids without producing a liquid phase change. Unlike the conventional dehydration methods based on hot-air drying, it cannot deteriorate the quality of the final product.
