Abstract:The purpose of this chapter is to summarize potential applications of the highpower ultrasound technology (5 W/cm 2 ; 20-100 kHz) in the food industry. Those applications are mainly related to the improvement in mass and energy transfer in different processes when ultrasound is applied in water or through air, e.g., reduction in dehydration; thawing and freezing times and energy costs of plant-, meat-, or fish-based products; increase the extraction yields of intracellular compounds with biological activity; r…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
