High Pressure Processing (HPP) is a leading nonthermal technology that is used commercially to retain freshness and natural tastes, extend shelf life and improve food safety of meats, fruits and vegetables, juices, and seafood. Pressure-treatment helps the processors to prepare foods using ingredients that consumers can recognize and understand. Companies such as Avure Technologies Inc. (U.S.) and Hiperbaric (Spain) are leaders in the HPP equipment market, and companies such as Hormel food corporation (U.S.), Esteban Espuna SA (Spain), and several others commercialize their product range with this technology. U.S. as the largest manufatuerer and consumer of HPP products in North America. The HPP equipment market value is projected to grow at a CAGR of 24%. Therefore, with public concern over Food Safety from unintentional and intentional contamination growing, recent advances in Nonthermal processing technologies and their applications, implementation, and commercialization have provided leading sources of innovation for ensuring Food Safety, while retaining food quality and acceptance that have been a winning formula for consumer’s in today’s marketplace. This Webcast will provide a broad audience of Food Scientists and Technologists with the fundamentals of HPP and its applications in inactivating resistant bacterial spores via Pressure-assisted thermal processing (PATP), which involves elevated pressures (400-600 MPa) and temperatures (90-120 °C) to produce commercially sterile shelf-stable low-acid foods. Military applications include inactivating Listeria monocytogenes and bacterial spores. And the growing prominence of HPP products in today’s commercial marketplace for Pasteurizing food products will be demonstrated with the latest commercial products (ready-to-eat meats, seafood, RTE meals, etc) that rely on HPP to eliminate L. monocytogenes using the most modern HPP equipment (500-Liter) and novel validation studies. As HPP is rapidly becoming a leading tool for Food Safety and Food Quality, this webcast will familiarize attendees with the implementation of these technologies in processing plants and establishing Critical Control Points and managing hazards from intentional and unintentional contamination in today’s evolving regulatory environment.
