Author(s) : Eur. Comm., LEISTNER L., GORRIS L. G. M.

Type of monograph: Report


The report was produced by the Concerted Action n. 7, Subgroup B, as part of the Food Linked Agro Industrial Research (FLAIR) programme organized and sponsored by the European Community. 14 scientists from laboratories in 11 European countries contributed to it. The report gives an introduction to the application of combined processes in food preservation, presents practical examples of foods preserved by combined processes and describes the various preservative factors (hurdles) that potentially can be exploited in food preservation. A number of rather new (emerging) hurdles are discussed in some detail by members of the subgroup in the form of mini-overviews (13 reports).
