Advances in Thermal and Non-Thermal Food Preservation
March 2007, Wiley-Blackwell
- thermal food preservation techniques (e.g., retorting, UHT and aseptic processing),
- minimal thermal processing (e.g., sous-vide processing), and
- non-thermal food preservation techniques (e.g., high pressure processing and pulsed technologies).
Editors Tewari and Juneja give special emphasis to the commercial aspects of non-conventional food preservation techniques. As the most comprehensive and contemporary resource of its kind, Advances in Thermal and Non-Thermal Food Preservation is the definitive standard in describing the inactivation of microorganisms through conventional and newer, more novel techniques.
