Food Processing – The Ultimate Means to Combat Resident Micro organisms

Food processing means the ways that are used to change raw ingredients or agricultural produce into consumable food items for humans or animals. Food processing has been the age old customs since the nomadic ages in order to prevent & preserve food for devouring at later times. The advancement of technology has only improved the practice of food processing keeping the basic purpose of prevention and consumption intact. The food processing industry uses these processes.
Food Processing has 3 main stages, namely:

  1. Primary – necessary to make some foods edible. Eg: cooking vegetables
  2. Secondary – turning various ingredients into a food item. Eg: baking bread
  3. Tertiary – usually the processing of instant and fast foods, low in its nutrition level but devoured with relish

Basic Advantages of Food Processing:

  • Adds value to crops
  • Removal of inedible portions
  • Preservation for later consumption or sale to fetch better price
  • Is a major source of food in regular diet
  • Benefits a large groups of people, such as farmers, suppliers, vendors and of course the customers

India is the world’s second largest producer of food next to China, and has the potential of being the biggest with the food and agricultural sector. The total food production in India is likely to double in the next ten years and there is an opportunity for large investments in food and food processing technologies, skills and equipment, especially in areas of –

  • Canning
  • Dairy and Food Processing
  • Packaging
  • Frozen Food
  • Meat & Poultry
  • Fruits\Vegetables\Grains Processing
  • Packaged/Convenience Foods
  • Alcoholic Beverages & Soft Drinks
  • Thermo-Processing, etc. etc.

India produces nearly 16% of the world’s total food grain production. It is one of the largest producers of agricultural produce. With a population expected to reach to about 590 million people by 2030 in urban India, India has a huge potential domestic demand for processed foods other than the demand from the exports. There are many socio-economic factors that are driving the demand side of the Indian Food Processing Industry. The changing consumption patterns, rising income levels among the middle-class and changing lifestyles, are some of the factors providing the demand side push for the Food Processing Industry. Moreover, the central government has given a priority status to all agro-processing businesses. (Excerpt from

These figures substantiate the fact that the food processing industry is growing in an increasing rate. And so we at KERONE provide full assistance to our clients, being the producers of processed/ packaged food products to deliver their products with finesse and efficiency with our Food Processing/production lines & plants. We provide the following technical solutions:

  1. Infrared
  2. Microwave

Infrared food processing:
These food processing systems function by utilizing the infrared radiation from electromagnetic spectrum that penetrates through food and results in vibration and revolution of molecules. IR radiation are superior than the conventional heating techniques as the heat is generated at the surface of food material and transfer of heat fast and direct, no heating of surrounding air. The IR heating depends on.

  • Surface property of material
  • Type of radiation
  • Shape of emitter and receiver

Microwave Food Processing:
Microwave heating conduce to the reduction of come up time in the processing for food products and is insensitive to food heterogeneity. In addition, microwave heating is also effective to heat up the ready to eat food, retrieving its original form and nutrients. Pasteurization is the most widely used technology for killing pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms in milk and fruit juices and other products. The MW heating depends on:

  • Surface property of material
  • Type of radiation
  • Shape of emitter and receiver
