Food Processing,Technology & Nutrition

The main purpose of food processing is process food are to eliminate micro-organisms (which may cause disease) and to extend shelf life. This also preserves the nutrients present in foods. The nutrient value of food can be changed by the way it is processed, cooked and stored. Food processing can destroy the water-soluble B-group and C vitamins. However, processing and cooking food can also make it safer to store and eat. It deals with food preservation technologies, food chemistry, parameters of food processing, modern food processing trends, food processing industries and practices, food bioactive, novel food processing methods, food packaging, food additives and ingredients and high pressure processing. The global processed food market is estimated at $3.2 trillion. Food processing industry is expected to benefit from this and grow to around $260-billion from the present USD 200-billion in the next 6-years, according to industry expert. It is estimated that potential for processed foods is estimated to reach from Rs 8,200-billion in 2009-10 to Rs13, 500-billion by 2014-15.
