Slides: Prevention of Planktonic and Sessile Pathogens of Public Health Concern Using an Emerging Technology
• Mild hydrostatic pressure could achieve in excess of 5 log reduction of bacterial pathogens
• Pathogenic bacteria were typically more sensitive to inactivation treatment that the spoilage organisms
• Mild Pressure could:
Increase bioavailability of nutrients
Increase the vessels shelf-life
Reducing processing costs
• Validation studies considering various intrinsic and extrinsic factors of the product could lead to optimized and economically feasible utilization of high pressure processing.
