Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR APPLYING TREATMENT MATERIALS TO FOODSTUFFS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR APPLIQUER DES MATÉRIAUX DE TRAITEMENT À DES PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES
Abstract:
(EN) High concentration, that is, strong antimicrobial treatment materials such as high concentration aqueous ammonia solutions or even liquid ammonia may be applied to a foodstuff (202) without deleterious effects by controlling the temperature of the foodstuff at or immediately after the time of contact with the antimicrobial treatment material. In particular, ice crystals are maintained at or just below the surface of the foodstuff at or immediately after the time of contact with the antimicrobial treatment material. The ice crystals in the foodstuff (202) inhibit absorption of the antimicrobial treatment material into the foodstuff.
(FR) Selon l'invention, des matériaux de traitement à concentration élevée, ou, autrement dit, fortement antimicrobiens, tels que des solutions d'ammoniac aqueuses à concentration élevée ou même de l'ammoniac liquide, peuvent être appliqués à un produit alimentaire (202) sans effets néfastes grâce à la régulation de la température du produit alimentaire au moment du contact avec le matériau de traitement antimicrobien ou immédiatement après. En particulier, des cristaux de glace sont maintenus à la surface du produit alimentaire ou juste en dessous de celle-ci au moment du contact avec le matériau de traitement antimicrobien ou immédiatement après. Les cristaux de glace dans le produit alimentaire (202) inhibent l'absorption du matériau de traitement antimicrobien dans le produit alimentaire.
