A new technology that is now available to food companies can increase the consumer appeal of chilled or frozen meals sold in retail markets while reducing the chance of contamination.
A group of engineers led by Dr. Juming Tang, distinguished chair of Food Engineering and associate chair of Biological Systems Engineering at Washington State University, has developed a novel microwave-assisted pasteurization system that can semi-continuously process 8- to 20-ounce pre-packaged chilled meals. This marks an important milestone in a research program funded by a $5 million USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant awarded in 2011 to WSU and partners across the country.
Congratulations toDr. Juming Tang. He has been selected by the M-131 Fellow committee, and elected by the ASABE Board of Trustees to the Grade of ASABE Fellow. This is an honorary status to which members of distinction may not apply but must be elected. This action reflects the high regard you are held by members of this Society. It also recognizes the significant contributions you have made in this profession. » More …
