Abstract:

The objective of this study was to establish that thermoprocessed foods in flexible packages can be readily produced under production conditions. Analytical studies and bench model and special equipment testing, have established that the objective is feasible. Progression to the confirming engineering, line fabrication, and production phase is recommended. Proposed product guideline formulas were revised to meet commercial production requirements. These were approved and commercial production guides were prepared for seventeen food items. Packaging material and packaging systems specifications were established. Technical feasibility of pouch, filling, vacuum sealing, and processing has been established within the constraints of the developed bench model system. Quality assurance testing methodology has been established.
