Preliminary heat treatment of food tissue before freezing, drying, canning

  • inactivation of enzymes: critical to the process of freezing and drying
  • release the gases trapped in the tissue
  • raise the temperature of the tissue: the adequacy of pasteurization/sterilization
  • Soften tissue: ease packing
  • reduce the number / initial microbial load
  • eliminate the raw taste,
  • ease cutting process (cutting, dicing, etc.),
  • ease pealing 
  • provide the desired color
