What is High Pressure Processing?
High Pressure Processing (HPP) is an all-natural process that uses purified cold water to neutralize pathogens, like listeria and E. Coli, without preservatives or chemicals. By applying a massive amount pressure (87,000 psi, to be exact) in all directions uniformly for about one to three minutes with no heat, HPP products retain their nutrients unlike heat pasteurized products, which allows us to have the tastiest product ever. Even better, it can extend shelf life up to two or three times longer than traditional preservation methods. More time to enjoy your Prommus!
Why does Prommus have added protein? Where does it come from?
Prommus adds whey protein isolate to the recipe to improve nourishment and satiety. Protein helps sustain you throughout the day and is an important part of a well rounded diet. Dairy protein can help you manage your weight, build muscle, and is packed with branch chained amino acids so it is rapidly digested compared to other proteins.
Our protein is sourced from Fonterra , the largest and most recognized dairy exporter in the world. They feature grass fed and pasture raised cows raised in New Zealand. We select only the very best dairy ingredients for our whey protein isolate. Fonterra uses innovative technology to test the milk’s quality and safety every two seconds. The New Zealand processing sites are all government certified, with advanced quality and safety systems including stringent process control and final product testing.

We care about the animals too! Fonterra is committed to managing livestock responsibly and to continuously improving animal health and welfare outcomes for their cows. More information can be found here .
