  • Fruits and Vegetables Hot Air Drying Processes Research

    Hot air drying is the conventional drying method, and it transfers heat from the drying medium to the material based on the heat conduction effect, then this results in two diffusion after the material absorbs heat: the external diffusion ( the moisture from the material surface to the drying medium ) and the internal diffusion ( the moisture from material interior to the material surface ), and ...

  • Drying Technology Research for Vegetable Powder Production

    Experiment shows that hot-air drying at the temperature of 60℃ is the best drying method for quality vegetable powder production, and the finshed vegetable powders with diameter≤0.125μm have good stability and reconstituability. Vegetable processing mainly includes pickled canning, drying, freezing, juicing and so on, but these processed products have a limited application area. ...

  • Reference: Apples fresh from the wash

    Just in time for the apple harvest: a Polish fruit and vegetable processing plant has opted for technical support in the form of a ProMinent chlorine dioxide system for the efficient treatment of the water used for washing. Problems in production Polish fruit and vegetable processing company Champion Sp. z o.o. is based in Jarogniewice, 40 kilometres south-west of Poznań. ...

  • Characterisation of L. monocytogenes strains isolated from salad vegetables

    Seventy–one strains of L. monocytogenes isolated from raw salad vegetables consumed in the minimally processed state in Malaysia were characterised by serotyping, random amplified polymorphic DNA–polymerase chain reaction analysis (RAPD–PCR) and antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Based on serotyping, only one strain belonged to serotype 4 while the rest were from serotype 1. RAPD–PCR typing ...

  • The role of information and communication technologies and logistics organisation in the economic performance of Sicilian fruit and vegetable enterprises

    Through a direct survey conducted on a sample of firms operating in the Sicilian fruit and vegetable sector, the present study provides an empirical evidence on the degree of diffusion of ICTs as well as on relationships with the regional distribution system. To pursue this goal, a multiple regression analysis model was implemented to identify which factors affect more the economic results of ...

  • Quantitative risk assessment of acquiring listeriosis from consumption of minimally processed vegetables

    Listeriosis is a serious invasive disease with high fatality rates especially among the vulnerable population. Although the causative pathogen had been detected in several foods in Malaysia, there have so far been no reported cases of listeriosis in Malaysia. The aim of this study was to carry out a quantitative risk assessment to estimate the risk of acquiring listeriosis through the consumption ...

  • Simulta neous determinat ion of nitrite and nitrate in processed foods

    Nitrite either alone or in combination with nitrate is added to food to preserve the color and taste and to prevent foods from becoming rancid. They are also used in food for their anti-microbial properties. Higher levels in vegetables and leafy greens are possible from the use of nitrate fertilizers and/or livestock manure. Nitrate can be reduced to nitrite at certain physiological conditions in ...

  • A Decade of Plant Species Changes on a Mire in the Italian Alps: Vegetation-Controlled or Climate-Driven Mechanisms?

    Abstract  Variation of plant species cover on a Sphagnum-dominated mire in the south-eastern Alps of Italy was assessed over a 10-year period in relation to depth to the water table, peat accumulation rate, and climate. Population dynamics of vascular species appeared to be primarily affected by the autogenic process of peat accumulation, which determined the lowering of water-table position ...

  • A Remote Automated Optical Field Sampling System based on the UniSpec-DC equipped with a Wireless System

    For remote locations, a reliable and repeatable field sampling method is needed for monitoring ecosystem processes for various scientific reasons (e.g. ground truthing, link vegetation indices to ecophysiological variables) (Claudio et al., in press; Fuentes et al., in press, Cheng et al., in press). To ensure that the data are collected continuously, and to collect the data during severe weather ...

  • Multiscale control of vegetation patterns: the case of Doñana (SW Spain)

    The early studies about the plant ecology of Doñana carried out at a small scale showed that the main process controlling vegetation composition of the stabilized dunes was soil water availability. However, the extrapolation of this model to larger spatial scales failed to explain observed vegetation patterns. In this work, the vegetation patterns and the processes causing them are studied at a ...
