Products with preserved structure

  • I. McFarlane


Minimal processing is considered the ideal for many food items. The first sections of this chapter are concerned with the use of instrumentation and control to preserve the quality of meat and fish, fruits and vegetables; these products have characteristic structure as well as flavour, and processing operations have to be designed to preserve both aspects. Control of headspace gases, otherwise known as modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), has a major role in this activity. Structure is also important when imparted to some multicomponent food items, particularly confectionery and snacks, and later sections of the chapter are about the use of instrumentation in these areas.
