How it works

How Laatu works

The product free-falls between low-energy electron beam lamps. Each seed is surrounded by electrons to ensure complete surface microbial reduction. Non-thermal surface treatment guarantees maximum quality preservation of important nutrients and sensory attributes, such as aroma, flavor and appearance.
