Food can rapidly spoil due to growth of microorganisms, and traditional methods of food preservation such as drying, canning, salting, curing, and chemical preservation can affect the quality of the food. Nowadays, various non-thermal processing techniques can be employed in grain processing industries to combat this. They include pulsed electric field processing, high pressure processing, ultrasonic processing, cold plasma processing, and more. Such techniques will satisfy consumer demand for delivering wholesome food products to the market. Non-Thermal Processing Technologies for the Grain Industry addresses these many new non-thermal food processing techniques that are used during grain processing and minimize microbial contamination and spoilage.
Explains the mechanism involved in application of cold plasma techniques for grain processing, and its strategy for inactivation of microbes by using this technique
Deals with the effect of incorporation of electric pulses on quality aspects of various grain based beverage products.
Details the innovative high pressure processing techniques used for extraction of antioxidant from food grains
Explores the safety issues and applications of non-thermal food processing techniques
This book will benefit food scientists, food process engineers, academicians, students, as well as anyone else in the food industry by providing in-depth knowledge and emerging trends about non-thermal processing techniques in various grain-based food processing industries.
