HPP, an alternative to Conventional Food Processing

hpp an alternative to conventional processing

Chapter “High Hydrostatic Pressure Food Processing: Potential and Limitations” written by Dr. Carole Tonello, Director of Commercial and Applications Department at Hiperbaric, beside Professor Stephanie Jung, from Department of Food Science and Nutrition of California Polytechnic State University (CalPoly), describes  High Pressure Processing technology (HPP). It is presented as an alternative to thermal processes widely accepted in the food industry thanks to its interesting strengths: safety, shelf-life enlargement, absence of chemical additives and preservation of nutritional and sensorial properties of food. From Hiperbaric, we invite everybody to discover all the hidden secrets of HPP in the book “Alternatives to conventional food processing”.

Vibriosis in fresh and under-cooked RTE seafood, and how HPP can be a part of the solution to minimize seafood illness risk

 

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.
