High pressure processing of seafood is claimed to be one of the best alternatives to prevent pathogens contamination, such as Vibrio spp., while maintaining the sensorial and nutritive properties of food. Recent researches, for instance, Ma & Su (2011) or Serment-Moreno et al. (2015), guarantee its effectiveness in oysters; besides, FAO considers HPP ideal to achieve the food safety and high quality objectives that the consumer demands.
The Annual IFT meeting took place on July 15-18 at Chicago, IL, and Hiperbaric Applications Specialists Mario González-Angulo and Vinicio Serment-Moreno participated in the event. Their briefings were well received, sharing research advances the effect of pressure on different Listeria monocytogenes strains on raw and RTE meat products, and the current status of the HPP market including an overview of novel Hiperbaric Bulk for juice and beverage processing.

Hiperbaric attends the first Cold Pressure Council Annual Conference, held in Chicago last June, and presents revealing results that contribute to the validation of HPP coconut water. These results, pertaining to studies carried out by Mario González-Angulo, affirm the absence of growth of C. botulinum in coconut water, even when the pH is higher than 4.6.
The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) is one of the most for food industry professionals around the world. IFT is present in 90 countries and encompasses every single aspect related to foods such as safety, processing, nutrition, sustainability and more, to advance the science of food and its application across the global food system.
