However, conventional blanching and pre-drying have the drawbacks of having low energy efficiency, long, processing time and increased leaching of minerals and nutrients such as vitamins (Tajner-, Studies on the results of microwave blanching versus boiling water blanching on, retention of selected water-soluble vitamins in vegetables have shown microwave blanching to, be more effective in the retaining the selected water-soluble B and C vitamins and nutrients in.

Other functions of blanching include: The first edi-tion of this book was the first definitive source of information on food preservation. 0000111348 00000 n Pot blanchers are used at home scale . This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 3 pages. Effective blanching time necessary to inactivate enzymes is dependent on various factors viz. It is not intended as a sole method of preservation, but as a pre-treatment prior to freezing, drying and canning. Hot. Blanchers with hot water and steam system: This type involves three step process viz. 0000117738 00000 n 0000120990 00000 n Canning Operations 5. Steam blanching: In case of steam blanching, the food product is directly exposed to steam, which avoids the loss of food soluble solids (flavours, vitamins, acids, sugars etc.) At lower temperature, the enzyme chlorophyllase remains active for little time and converts chlorophyll to a phyllin, which retains green colour. 2.nching Bla. 0000114905 00000 n 0000008769 00000 n to destroy enzyme activity in fruit and vegetables. �#�����*�S�+n�y��vm=��v�j�4�@��.X����%n��\Nv7�R�X��Q���R�\/q��aΕ�. 0000121110 00000 n Generally hot water blanching is done because of low capital costs and better energy efficiency. It has been evaluated for blanching of cabbage, cauliflower, pea and okra. Results revealed satisfactory performance on account of colour retention in the dried product. It is also known as scalding. Central Institute of Agricultural Engineering (CIAE), Bhopal has developed the batch type steam blancher, (Figure 2) with 100 kg/ h capacity. Disadvantages associated with hot water blanching include loss of water-soluble constituents, risk of contamination and higher cost of water and disposal of effluent. Steam blanching is advantageous as it results in less loss of water-soluble constituents, less volume of waste, easy to clean and sterilize. Major function of blanching is inactivation of enzymes for frozen or dehydrated foods as enzymes can cause rapid changes in colour, flavour and nutritive value of such food products. 3. Blanching as a pretreatment before drying has many advantages like it helps in cleaning the material and reducing the amount of microorganisms present on the surface; it preserves the natural colour in the dried products; for example, the carotenoid (orange and yellow) pigments dissolve in small intracellular oil drops during blanching and in this way they are protected from oxidative breakdown during drying; and it shortens the soaking and/ or cooking time during reconstitution. Normally, two heat resistant plant enzymes such as catalase and peroxidase, are used to evaluate blanching efficacy, as appropriate time and temperature is required to inactivate them. 0000004653 00000 n But it has some disadvantages such as higher capital costs, uneven blanching, and low efficiency. 0000010682 00000 n 0000002328 00000 n Blanching of green leafy vegetables especially spinach at boiling point causes loss of green colour but at lower temperature (77°C), it retains the natural green colour, even when heated at higher temperature (121°C) later during sterilization. product on conveyer belts is exposed to steam consecutively followed by contact between food and hot water and finally immersion in hot water. 0000117224 00000 n 0000110683 00000 n Blanching slows or stops the action of enzymes that can cause loss of flavor, color and texture. 0000002681 00000 n 0000009427 00000 n water and steam are the most commonly used heating media for blanching in industry. 0000121960 00000 n Ultra-Pasteurization), UHT, Hot Fill, Minimal processing 4. a����47,*��CɒsH'�0���]��)EHۋ�֚9s}|^X|��n��K����*�f6kUL�K�X����Y�jy��U`�%�o�~2R�dVdEgwd��:F�_��=ue����Pqa�� �|dc�V �D�Bߗ���������w���P�IH 2. E.g. It requires careful monitoring of time, temperature and the other conditions. 0000005256 00000 n Blanching is a unit operation prior to freezing, canning, or. The former process involves temperatures below 100°C whereas the latter is carried out at temperatures above 100°C. It requires careful monitoring of time, temperature and the other conditions.

Sometimes canning process may allow sufficient time for enzymatic activity and under blanching may increase the enzymatic activity. 0000019886 00000 n Blanching does not allow effective autoclaving, and stops the activity of autolytic enzymes. %PDF-1.4 %���� Kinetics (D & z values) 7. 0000002530 00000 n edible food. Blanching cleanses the surface of dirt and organisms, brightens of each preservation method and handling procedure on foods is critical in food processing. Process Optimization 9. Methods of blanching: Blanching is a delicate processing step. For canned products, blanching removes gases, shrinks the food to correct fill weight in can and offers preheating, which are very important to provide vacuum in can and proper sterilization. FOOD PROCESSING MACHINERY Lyco Manufacturing, Inc. 115 Commercial Drive, P.O. Other functions of blanching include: 0000021096 00000 n There are a number of types of heat processing employed by the food industry. Hot water blanching: It is defined as a mild heat treatment applied to tissue (usually plant) primarily to inactivate enzymes prior to freezing, drying or canning.
