Thermal processing – quality optimisation
09 Nov 2012 - 09 Nov 2012 - Chipping Campden, UK
This course takes a practical approach, making extensive use of thermal process modelling and simulation techniques, to illustrate the ways in which thermal process may be designed to achieve the objectives of product safety and optimum quality.
Building on the knowledge gained from Thermal process validation, this will be a valuable supplement to past and present delegates of that course.
The programme will include a number of case studies, where delegates will make use of CTemp modelling software, based around the following key topics:
- Key quality parameters
- Non-enzymic browning
- Re-evaluating Fo and Pu values
- Novel approaches to process design
- Graduated heating
- Falling temperature holds
- Cooling lethality
- Agitated processes
- Effects of container selection
