|Title:||Biological validation of tomato pulp continuous heat process|
De Massaguer, PR
|Abstract:||This research validated the commercial process applied to tomato pulp (pH 4.3 and 8 Brix) packed in Tetra Brik packages. Spores of Bacillus coagulans and Neosartorya fischeri were selected as targets. The heat resistance of both microorganisms, tested independently, was compared. The redesigned thermal processes were carried out in a aseptic processing and tested by indirect inoculation and retrieval with spores immobilized in alginate/tomato balls. The results showed that processes for 30 s at 115C or greater did not allow the survival of heat-resistant molds. For bacterial spores, processes for 30 s at 109C or greater showed no survivors. Although, 30 s at 115C will control both types of spoilage spores, concern for possible C. botulinum growth attributed to metabiosis in product with varying initial populations of molds and residual oxygen content dictated, a process recommendation of 60 s at 126C for safety reasons.|
