Abdullah, Norazlin and Chin, Nyuk Ling (2014) Application of thermosonication treatment in processing and production of high quality and safe-to-drink fruit juices. Agriculture and Agricultural Science Procedia, 2 . pp. 320-327. ISSN 2210-7843
The demand for higher quality and freshness in fruit juices with absence of additives and preservatives has encouraged the use of ultrasound technology in juice processing. Thermosonication is a novel and good alternative technique to replace the conventional heat treatment process. It has potential in enhancing quality and safety of the fruit juices. It is more energy-efficient than conventional thermal technology. It is also more efficient, safe and reliable than ultrasound application alone by itself to achieve the limit of food-borne pathogens destruction. This review covers the effects of ultrasound-heat combined application on fruit juices quality and safety aspects.
