This webinar will present essential terms and definitions of sterilization process in the production of low acid foods (LAF). In addition, general approaches for the establishment of sterilization process using traditional thermal and emerging techniques will be discussed.

Why Should You Attend:
Sterilisation unit operation is directed towards achieving shelf stability or commercial sterility through microorganisms removal or inactivation including spores. Traditionally, the food industry used heat to sterilize foods. In current times, where the role of the consumer has become leading and necessary, food production systems are no longer supply-driven but become more demand-driven. As a result of consumer demands for foods that are fresher, more natural, or minimally processed and additive-free, new physical methods of treatment are emerging for shelf-life extension and are under broad development.

Essential terms and definitions of sterilization process in the production of low acid foods (LAF) will be presented. In addition, general approaches for the establishment of sterilization process using traditional thermal and emerging techniques will be discussed.

Instructor Profile:
Dr. Tatiana Koutchma, is a Research Scientist in Food Processing in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), Guelph Food Research Center where she leads research in food safety engineering. Before she joined the AAFC, she was an Associate Professor at the National Centre for Food Safety and Technology (NCFST) at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago where she had taught courses in food processing and engineering. She received her doctoral degree in Food Process Engineering at Moscow State University of Food Production. Since 1990, she has worked in academia and government research programs, collaborating with leading food companies. Her main research focus is application of emerging processing technologies like UV light, microwave heating and high hydrostatic pressure for improved food safety, security, shelf life and product acceptability. She also initiated a research program on UV pasteurization of fresh juices and other liquid ingredients.

Dr. Koutchma is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Food Processing, Food, and Bioprocess Technology; a member of the Innovative Technologies Board of PepsiCo; is an invited speaker at international symposiums and congresses; and, chairs conferences and society sections. Since 1998, she has published over 50 manuscripts and book chapters on a wide range of food processing related topics. In 2009 she completed a book on the application of UV technology for foods called “Ultraviolet Light in Food Technology: Principles and Applications”.
