Abstract:

IT IS PROPOSED TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP AN ALTERNATIVE PROCESS FOR THE STERILIZATION OF HEAT-SENSITIVE FREE-FLOWING FOOD PRODUCTS, SUCH AS SPICES, WHICH WILL REPLACE CONVENTIONAL ETHYLENE-OXIDE STERILIZATION METHODS. THE ETHYLENE-OXIDE METHOD CREATES POTENTIAL EXPOSURE HAZARDS TO EMPLOYEES AND POTENTIAL RESIDUAL COMBINATION PRODUCTS WHICH CAN BE UNACCEPTABLE IN CERTAIN FOODS. IN PHASE I, THE FEASIBILITY OF A NEW PROCESS USING HEAT, PRESSURE, AND A QUENCHING PROCESS WILL BE DETERMINED FOR WHOLE PEPPER. OPERATING SUCH AS TEMPERATURE, EXPOSURE TIME, PRESSURE, AND MICROBIAL REDUCTION AND VOLATILE OIL RETENTION WILL BE DETERMINED USING A PILOT-SCALE SYSTEM.
