PATS : pressure assisted thermal sterilization (HPP sterilisation)

2,429 views

Published on

A small overview of the pressure assisted thermal sterilization (PATS). The correct use of pressure and an elevated temperature makes it possible to inactivate spores, hence to sterilize food products. More information can be found on:

  2. 2. Achtergrond: Pasteurisatie vs SterilisatiePasteurisatie:• Inactivatie van vegetatieve cellen• Typische condities : 70-80oC• Ketencondities : gekoeld (soms ongekoeld : sappen)• Voorbeelden : melk, koelversmaaltijd, sappen, …Sterilisatie:• Inactivatie van vegetatieve cellen en sporen van M.O.• Typische condities : >120oC• Ketencondities : ambient (niet gekoeld)• Voorbeelden : soepen in blik, maaltijden, vlees, … ir.

  3. 3. PATS : first idea’s 1999-2002PATS (sterilization with pressure):• Inactivation of spores by a combined effect of temperature and pressure• Advantage : minimal thermal damage  quality improvement of products (taste, color, firmness)Problem description : Wageningen University and Research Centre• Experiments are difficult to reproduce. did not provide permission Different systems  temperate gradients to publish these photo’s• Results are dependent on equipment used• The importance of temperature is probably not enough recognized.Processing conditions•Wilson: 1 pulse (T0>90°C, 700 MPa, > 15 min )• Meyer: 2 pulses (700 MPa, 90°C;1000 MPa, 70°C) ir.
