This book covers many aspects of thermal processing of milk and milk products with particular focus on UHT processing. It commences with an overview of the major thermal processing technologies: thermisation, pasteurisation, extended-shelf-life (ESL), UHT and in-container sterilisation. It discusses the principles of the technologies, the processing and packaging equipment used, processing issues such as temperature-time profiles, heat stability, fouling and cleaning, and the quality and safety aspects of the products produced. It provides a balance of the engineering aspects of the processes and the chemical, microbiological and sensory aspects of the products. The changes that occur in products during processing and storage, and the related defects which can arise, are central to the book. The discussions of these changes will be an aid to industry personnel in identifying the causes of quality defects in these products and devising measures which can be taken to eliminate or minimise the defects.

Thermal technologies have long been at the heart of food processing. The application of heat is both an important method of preserving foods and a means of developing texture, flavour and colour. An essential issue for food manufacturers is the effective application of thermal technologies to achieve these objectives without damaging other desirable sensory and nutritional qualities in a food product. Edited by a leading authority in the field, and with a distinguished international team of contributors, Thermal technologies in food processing addresses this major issue. Part one of the collection begins with reviews of conventional retort and continuous heat technologies. Part two then looks at the key issues of effective measurement and control in ensuring that a thermal process is effective whilst minimising any undesirable changes in a food. There are chapters on temperature and pressure measurement, validation of heat processes, modelling and simulation of thermal processes, and the measurement and control of changes in a food during thermal processing. The final part of the book looks at emerging thermal technologies which becoming more widely used in the food industry. There are chapters on radio frequency heating, microwave processing, infrared heating, instant and high-heat infusion, and ohmic heating A final chapter considers how thermal processing may be combined with high pressure processing in producing safe, minimally-processed food products. Thermal technologies in food processing provides food manufacturers and researchers with an authoritative review of thermal processing and food quality.

Thermobacteriology in Food Processing, Second Edition focuses on the principles involved in sterilization processes for canned goods and pasteurization of foods. The book first ponders on organisms of greatest importance in the spoilage of canned foods and food pasteurization and bacteriological examination of spoiled canned foods. Discussions focus on toxin-producing microorganisms, pathogenic microorganisms, bacteriological examination, classification of spore-bearing bacteria with reference to oxygen requirements, classification of food with respect to acidity, and interpretation of observations. The text then takes a look at contamination and its control, producing, harvesting, and cleaning spores for thermal resistance determinations, and death of bacteria subjected to moist heat. The manuscript tackles thermal resistance of bacteria and thermal process evaluation, including important terms and equations, basic considerations, general method, and conversion of heat penetration data. Topics include change of initial food temperature when the retort temperature remains the same, integrated lethality of heat at all points in the container, heat penetration and processing parameters, and determination of process lethality requirement. The publication is a valuable reference for researchers interested in thermobacteriology in food processing.
