  1. 1. The effectivity of vacuum impregnation with glycerol and secondary metabolites on electroporated arugula leaves to improve freezing stability.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Oscar de Kuijer; [2021]
    Keywords : Pulsed electric field PEF; Arugula; Electroporation; Secondary metabolites; Glycerol; Food engineering; Livsmedelsteknik; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : Freeze damage is a common issue in many food items. The cellular dehydration caused by freezing can be prevented through addition of a cryoprotectant. Research has shown that it is possible to improve the freezing tolerance of plant materials by addition of cryoprotectants, which forms hydrogen bonds with water molecules. READ MORE

    Abstract : As of 2020 an estimated number of 821 million people across the world are undernourished and that figure is expected to grow by 2 billion before the end of 2050 (United Nations Sustainable Development 2020). Despite this, every year over 1/3 of food produced globally is disposed of without consumption (Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition 2018), and the actual number might be much higher.

  4. 4. Optimization of Pulse Electric Field Treatment and Vacuum Impregnation for Reducing Freezing Injury of Thawed Rucola Leaves

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Imelda Christiana Nyoto; [2018]
    Keywords : food engineering; livsmedelsteknik; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : Freezing injuries usually take place in thawed plant-based food products. To reduce freezing injuries, Pulse Electric Field (PEF) treatment and Vacuum Impregnation (VI) of cryoprotectant were used before the freezing process. READ MORE

  5. 5. Application of pulsed electric fields and vacuum impregnation to improve the freezing tolerance of fresh Origanum vulgare leaves

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)
