Book Description :

Microbial agents (particularly bacteria) represent the greatest risk to public health. The traditional end-product oriented food inspection systems are inadequate for identifying and eliminating the usually symptomless animal carriers of agents causing foodborne infections and intoxications. Modern, risk-based, prevention approaches are the only effective way to reduce the prevalence of these hazards from our foods. As an additional 'safety-valve' microbial decontamination procedures are currently being suggested and its implementation in industrial food processing has, at least in some parts of the world, met with governmental approval. The residues in foods of some non-microbial agents have more recently also caused substantial consumer disquiet. This equally applies to non-conventional foods containing GMO's. In this publication these issues are addressed by invited expert scientists from various disciplines, many of which have key-positions in EU-funded research programmes on these very topics and/or are advisers to international public health bodies. The editors firmly believe that the very nature of the theme, the excellence of the papers and the holistic approach chosen will draw an audience from both an industry and academic background.

Book Description :

Meat inspection, meat hygiene and official control tasks in the slaughterhouse have always been of major importance in the meat industry, and are intimately related with animal diseases and animal welfare. The history of meat inspection has largely been a success story. Huge steps have been taken over more than a century to prevent the transmission of pathogenic organisms and contagious diseases from animals to humans. Various factors influence the quality and safety of meat including public health hazards (zoonotic pathogens, chemical substances and veterinary drugs), animal health and welfare issues during transport and slaughter. Meat inspection is one of the most important programs in improving food safety, and its scope has enlarged considerably over the last decades. Globalization has affected the complexity of the modern meat chain and has provided possibilities for food fraud and unfair competition. During the last two decades many food fraud cases have been reported, which have caused concern among consumers and the industry. Subsequently meat inspection is faced with new challenges. Meat Inspection and Control in the Slaughterhouse is an up-to-date reference book that responds to these changes and reflects the continued importance of meat inspection for the food industry. The contributors to this book are all international experts in the areas of meat inspection and the official controls limited to slaughterhouses, providing a rare insight into the international meat trade. This book will be of importance to students, professionals and members of the research community worldwide who aim to improve standards of meat inspection procedures and food safety.

Book Description :

High intensity pulsed light (PL) is one of the most appealing non-thermal technologies, due to its short treatment time and its wide range of applications in the preservation of packaged and unpackaged food products, as well as non-preservation processes for the food industry, water disinfection and medical applications. This is confirmed by the large increase in research articles published on the subject over the past years, and increasing interest from food producers concerning the use of this technology. High Intensity Pulsed Light in Processing and Preservation of Foods is the first book specifically focused on PL technology in a convenient single-source volume. It offers an incisive view on the latest developments and advances in this exciting technology from the perspective of microbiologists, biochemists, food technologists, electrical, environmental and food engineers, and medical doctors. On completion, it will provide a comprehensive overview of this field, highlighting the positive aspects of pulsed light applications as well as discussing areas of weakness and future trends. The book first provides basic information on the need for food preservation, the decontamination problems faced by the food industry and the expectations of the consumers. The most appealing current and emerging methods are briefly described, providing a general review of the applications and the efficacy of conventional UV light for the purpose of inactivating microorganisms in the food and water. Part I follows the introduction and reviews the principles of PL technology as non-thermal decontamination methods of foods while also describing equipment for generation of PL, the main critical design factors and control parameters. It also deals with the potential safety hazards when treating foods with PL. Part II critically analyses and discusses the effect of PL on safety and quality of food products. It elucidates mechanisms of microbial inactivation, discusses critical processing factors, reviews current background on the inactivation kinetics of microorganisms and enzymes as well as the impact on bioactive molecules, nutritional properties and quality parameters in foods. The use of PL as part of a hurdle or minimal processing strategy in conjunction with other factors or techniques of preservation is also considered. Finally, the third part of the book describes applications of the PL technology past the food sector, such as for water disinfection and parts of the medical field as well as regulatory aspects. High Intensity Pulsed Light in Processing and Preservation of Foods is a valuable reference for members of both academia and industry who are interested in gaining wide and comprehensive knowledge of PL technology.

Book Description :

Attempts to provide safer and higher quality fresh and minimally processed produce have given rise to a wide variety of decontamination methods, each of which have been extensively researched in recent years. Decontamination of Fresh and Minimally Processed Produce is the first book to provide a systematic view of the different types of decontaminants for fresh and minimally processed produce. By describing the different effects – microbiological, sensory, nutritional and toxicological – of decontamination treatments, a team of internationally respected authors reveals not only the impact of decontaminants on food safety, but also on microbial spoilage, vegetable physiology, sensory quality, nutritional and phytochemical content and shelf-life. Regulatory and toxicological issues are also addressed. The book first examines how produce becomes contaminated, the surface characteristics of produce related to bacterial attachment, biofilm formation and resistance, and sublethal damage and its implications for decontamination. After reviewing how produce is washed and minimally processed, the various decontamination methods are then explored in depth, in terms of definition, generation devices, microbial inactivation mechanisms, and effects on food safety. Decontaminants covered include: chlorine, electrolyzed oxidizing water, chlorine dioxide, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, peroxyacetic acid, essential oils and edible films and coatings. Other decontamination methods addressed are biological strategies (bacteriophages, protective cultures, bacteriocins and quorum sensing) and physical methods (mild heat, continuous UV light, ionizing radiation) and various combinations of these methods through hurdle technology. The book concludes with descriptions of post-decontamination methods related to storage, such as modified atmosphere packaging, the cold chain, and modeling tools for predicting microbial growth and inactivation. The many methods and effects of decontamination are detailed, enabling industry professionals to understand the available state-of-the-art methods and select the most suitable approach for their purposes. The book serves as a compendium of information for food researchers and students of pre- and postharvest technology, food microbiology and food technology in general. The structure of the book allows easy comparisons among methods, and searching information by microorganism, produce, and quality traits.
