Food Preservation

Food preservation is the process of treating and handling food to stop or slow down spoilage (loss of quality, edibility or nutritional value) and thus allow for longer storage.

Preservation processes

Preservation processes include:

  • Heating to kill or denature micro-organisms (e.g., boiling)
  • Oxidation (e.g., use of sulfur dioxide)
  • Ozonation (e.g., use of ozone [O3] or ozonated water to kill undesired microbes)
  • Toxic inhibition (e.g., smoking, use of carbon dioxide, vinegar, alcohol etc.)
  • Dehydration (drying)
  • Osmotic inhibition (e.g., use of syrups)
  • Low temperature inactivation (e.g., freezing)
  • Ultra high water pressure (e.g., Fresherized®, a type of “cold” pasteurization; intense water pressure kills microbes which cause food deterioration and affect food safety)
  • Combinations of these methods
