Food processing is a technology which used by the food processing industry to transform raw ingredients into other forms for consumption by humans or animals. Food processing typically takes harvested crops or animal products and produces marketable, long-life products which can be consumed directly or stored to cook later. The main benefits of food processing are preservation, distribution, marketing, protection from environmental substances and the ease of preparation. There are also a few drawbacks of food processing like the loss of nutritional value and health effects due to added additives. Some of the Food processing methods are:

  • Track 1-1Removing the outer layer of vegetables
  • Track 1-2Chopping or slicing of vegetables
  • Track 1-3Mincing
  • Track 1-4Gasification

Packaging plays a major role in the Food industry which includes the advancement in the machinery used to process the food, portion in respected size and pack, sanitation, etc. Packaging also depends on the demand for capacity, waste reduction, durability and ease of use. The different types of Food processing include:

Food preservation refers to the techniques used to prevent food from spoiling. It includes different methods like drying, irradiation, pasteurization and adding of additives. Preservation implicates avoiding the growth of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms as well as retarding oxidation of fats to reduce rancidity. The procedure also guarantees that there is no discolouration or aging and also involves sealing to prevent re-entry of microbes. Food preservation hepls food to remain in a healthy state and does not lose its qualities. Preservation safeguards that the quality, edibility and the nutritive value of the food remains undamaged. Some methods of food preservation are:

 
  • Track 8-1Salting
  • Track 8-2Fermentation
  • Track 8-3Dehydration

Food packaging prevents contamination and allows food to be transported easily. It also extends the shelf life depending on the type of packaging. Even in food packaging, many concerns are raised that the chemicals which are used to pack the food products migrate into the food, thus raising the health issues due to the certain product. The food packaging also has labelling with information about the contents, ingredients, nutritional content, cooking instructions and shelf life of the food. The packaging needs to be designed such that there is little to no interaction between the food and packaging

  • Track 9-2Temperature Control

Food quality plays an important role because food consumers are susceptible to any form of contamination which may occur during manufacturing. Most of the customers tend to buy a product of the same brand which we think is of good quality and matches our expectations, but even the slightest mistakes where the quality of a product is damaged or compromised could completely destroy the image of the brand and the company could face a huge loss. One way to reduce these types of incidents is to eliminate the source of a problem with through inspection and quality management to ensure customers’ requirements are met. It is important to ensure that the food processed from the envitornment is clean and healthy in order to provide the good quality food for the customer.

Food microbiology refers to the study of micro-organisms that contaminate or destroy food. Food Microbiology mainly focuses on a variety of research on bacteria that have beneficial as well as harmful effects on the quality of food. Food-borne micro-organisms interact differently with various foods and their response differs with various food products so, there is a need to study the microbial diversity for improving the quality, safety, and to maintain healthy properties of processed foods.

Food flavouring (or food flavouring) refers to the blending of essences, liquid extracts and flavours which are added to the produce to enhance the taste and aroma. Essential oils from fruits and vegetables, synthetic organic chemicals, food colouring is the basic flavourings which are used. Although the food flavouring industry mainly used to focus on natural flavouring substances, today we see a lot of organic chemical components such as alcohol, hydrocarbons and phenol ethers used. Classification of food flavours are:

Food poisoning is the main cause for the intake of unhealthy food or unhygienic food. Foodborne illnesses are infections or irascibilities of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract triggered by food or beverages that contain destructive bacteria, parasites, viruses, or chemicals. The GI tract is a sequence of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to the anus. Common symptoms of foodborne illnesses are vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, fever, and chills. Main causes include :

Food toxicology deals with how natural or synthetic poisons and toxicants in various food products cause harmful, detrimental, or adverse side effects in living organisms. Food Toxicology shields with various aspects of food safety and toxicology, including the study of the nature, properties, effects, and detection of toxic substances in food and their disease manifestations in humans. It will also include other phases of consumer product safety. A food toxicologist studies toxicants in food, the health effects of high nutrient intakes, and the connection between toxicants and nutrients. Food and nutrition toxicology involves investigation of flavours, additives packaging materials and food contaminants.

Food safety is about producing, handling, storing and preparing food in such a way as to preclude infection and contamination in the food production chain, and to help ensure that food quality and goodness are sustained to stimulate good health. Food hygiene is necessary for safety of health. Lack of adequate food hygiene can lead to foodborne diseases and can cause the death of the consumer. The objective of food hygiene is to consume hygienic food and to have a healthy life.

The reasons of food waste or loss are several and occur at the stages of producing, processing, retailing and consuming. In the most recent years, food waste has become a multifaceted phenomenon attracting the attention of scientists, consumers and activists alike. It’s been termed as a global paradox regarding the method in which importance is put on agriculture to advance food security and then a third of all the food produced ends up as waste.
