Utrasonic topic: "Ultrasonic Processing in the Food Industry"
The application of powerful ultrasound waves to liquid food products is used to homogenise and disperse them evenly, to extract aromatic and bioactive compounds (e.g. flavours, vitamins, natural colorants) and to improve microbial stability. As a non-thermal treatment, ultrasonication avoids the thermal decomposition of temperature-sensitive substances and is thereby a mild processing method. Hielscher Ultrasonics offers a wide product range of high-performance ultrasonic food processing systems, which can be operated in batch mode or continuous inline setup using an ultrasonic flow-through reactor.
