The main objective of i³-Food is the implementation of 3 prioritised innovative food processing technologies by validation of optimum process control under industrial conditions: 1. Pulsed Electric Field preservation (PEF-P) of liquid food products (TRL 7-8); 2.High pressure thermal sterilization (HPTS) (TRL 6-7) and 3. Low shear extrusion of cold food products (TRL 6). A congeneric set of both te ...

Meat tenderness has long being recognized as the most important attribute of meat, greatly influencing consumer acceptability. After meat slaughtering, shortening of the muscle protein fibers causes the meat to become tough (“rigor mortis”). For meat to become enough tender to be sold to the final consumer, it has to be under chilling storage for a period ,between 7-90 days, resulting in high meat ...

More than 60% of all reported diseases in modern industrial countries are said to have their origin from malnutrition (low vitamin intake, high caloric food (fat and sugar)). As an important cause of this the high consumption of fat (saturated and trans-fatty acids, salt (sodium) and sugar (mono- and disaccharides) has been identified. With the change of society, the consumer’s pattern towards fo ...

Development of Shock Wave Technology for Packed Meat (ShockMeat)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Apr 30, 2014,

In recent years the consumer demand has shifted towards convenient, easy to prepare meat products. In Europe mainly multiple use cattle varieties (milk and meat production) are raised, providing a small amount of tender meat pieces applicable for steak production, only. To produce beef and pork meat with sufficient quality for preparation of convenience food like steaks usually a post-mortal ripen ...
