Green vegetables are a very important nutritional source for maintaining our health. However, because the chlorophyll converts to pheohytin with the fading of its green color when subjected to heat sterilization, it has long been a dream to store green vegetables for long periods of time. In our method, sterilization and inactivation of enzymes are carried out by a combination of high pressure and heat in an effort to develop green vegetables with superior storage characteristics. As a result, we have succeeded in reducing the micro-organism content in spinach, field peas and broccoli to an acceptable level in the practical use by the application of high pressure of 400 MPa at 55°C for 10 min.
