Microwave pasteurization of shell eggs
Due to their rich nutritive value, eggs are potential hosts and carriers of pathogenic microbes like Salmonella enteritidis. Heat pasteurization is the best solution for controlling these pathogens but affects the egg’s vital functional properties due to protein denaturation. Learn more about a system that can seamlessly integrate with the existing packaging lines in the poultry industry and add the pasteurization functionality, while ensure consumer acceptability and quality.
