Pulsed UV light systems for beverages

With increasing consumer awareness over foods’ taste and nutrition, the food industry has been actively investigating novel food processing techniques that retain foods’ original flavor and minimize the amount of nutrient loss during food processing. Pulsed light and Power Ultrasound are the two potential techniques that can assist thermal processing by enhancing its bactericidal efficiency. Our research aims to breakthrough the current, limited adaptation of the two techniques and apply them to a larger variety of food products, promoting a more environmentally-friendly and cost-effective food processing industry.
