Food Preservation Techniques in Developing Countries

  • Mohammad U. H. Joardder
  • Mahadi Hasan Masud


Proper food preservation must be executed in order to overcome the food waste problem of developing countries. There is a wide range of food preservation techniques prevailing across the globe nowadays. Individual techniques put importance on one or more key factors of food waste including microbial proliferation, enzymatic reaction, chemical reaction, as well as physical damage. Consequently, the required process conditions vary significantly through the preservation techniques. Several types of preservation techniques are performed on the basis of some common physical phenomena including heat transfer, moisture removal, and prevention of enzymatic and chemical reaction. A wide range of common food preservation techniques has been discussed in this chapter.
