Consumers around the world have become better educated and more demanding in their identification and purchase of quality health-promoting foods; therefore the food industry requires innovative technologies to provide their clientele with safe and stable foods that meet safety regulations . Improving Food Quality with Novel Food Processing Technologies details novel processing technologies including high pressure processing (HPP) and pulsed electrical fields (PEFs) that can improve the quality of food from functionality, chemistry/microbiology, bioactive quantity, and shelf-life standpoints. The authors discuss how to improve food functionality with high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) and PEFs. They focus on improving the quality and retaining bioactive constituents of fruits and vegetables and improving the quality of dairy, egg, meat, and seafood products with HHP. Broad in scope, the book also reviews the modeling and simulations of HHP inactivation of microorganisms and the relative effects of HHP processing on food allergies and intolerances. It then discusses improving food functionality with PEF processes in dairy and egg products, fruit juices, and wine. A chapter attending to industrial applications of HHP and PEF systems and potential commercial quality and shelf life of food products concludes this discussion. During the past decade, novel processing technologies including HHP, ultrasound, PEF, and advanced heating technologies containing microwave, ohmic heating, and radio frequency have frequently been applied in the processing of foods and beverages. Successful research and identification of economic benefits, including energy and water conservation as well as demonstrated safety and fresh-like quality attributes will improve consumer perception of nonthermal technologies and result in further development by the food industry around the world. In an in-depth exploration of these novel technologies, the book gives you the skills for product development and improvement.

Innovative Technologies for Food Preservation: Inactivation of Spoilage and Pathogenic Microorganisms covers the latest advances in non-thermal processing, including mechanical processes (such as high pressure processing, high pressure homogenization, high hydrodynamic pressure processing, pressurized fluids); electromagnetic technologies (like pulsed electric fields, high voltage electrical discharges, Ohmic heating, chemical electrolysis, microwaves, radiofrequency, cold plasma, UV-light); acoustic technologies (ultrasound, shockwaves); innovative chemical processing technologies (ozone, chlorine dioxide, electrolysis, oxidized water) and others like membrane filtration and dense phase CO2. The title also focuses on understanding the effects of such processing technologies on inactivation of the most relevant pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms to ensure food safety and stability. Over the course of the 20th century, the interest and demand for the development and application of new food preservation methods has increased significantly. The research in the last 50 years has produced various innovative food processing technologies and the use of new technologies for inactivation of spoilage and/or pathogenic microorganisms will depend on several factors. At this stage of development there is a need to better understand the mechanisms that govern microbial inactivation as induced by new and innovative processing technologies, as well as suitable and effective conditions for inactivating the microorganism. Serves as a summary of relevant spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms for different foods as influenced by the application of innovative technologies for their preservation Provides readers with an in-depth understanding on how effective innovative processing technologies are for controlling spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms in different foods Integrates concepts in order to find the optimum conditions for microbial inactivation and preservation of major and minor food compounds

The volume reviews different types of bioactive components associated with food fermentation and their impact on human health. The diversity of microorganism responsible for the production of different types of fermented foods and beverages includes bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. Biotransformation of food constituent by microorganisms occurs during fermentation processes for the production of fermented food and in the gastrointestinal tract by gut microorganisms. This biotransformation results in production of specific bioactive compounds that are responsible for a wide range of health benefits. The bioactive compounds discussed in this book includes polyphenols, bioactive peptides, fibrinolytic enzymes, gama-amino butyric acids (GABA) exopolysaccharides, probiotic, prebiotic, symbiotic and antinutritional factors. These bioactive compounds are responsible for health benefits such as antioxidant, antihypertension, antimicrobial, cholesterol lowering, anticancer, obesity and antithrombotic properties. Advanced research in the field of food fermentation and their health benefits have resulted in commercialization of some of the fermented foods as functional foods. The traditional fermented foods consumed in different parts of the world and their health benefits are discussed in detail and the book concludes with recent advances in microbial transformation during gut fermentation and their impact on human health. There has been increasing interest among researchers on the proposed title in the last decade and the book brings updated information on research and advances in different types of health benefits exhibited by bioactive compounds in a wide range of fermented foods.
