Design of the Compartmented Meal Tray for Simultaneous Thermoprocessing of Foods
Final rept. May 1989-May 1991
RUTGERS - THE STATE UNIV NEW BRUNSWICK NJ DEPT OF FOOD SCIENCE
Pagination or Media Count:
Computer simulations were used to design a three-component meal tray for simultaneously thermal processing three different foods. Based on computer predictions, several prototype trays were made and their performance was verified with experiments. Among the prototype trays was the one-tray design, which was flexible enough to accommodate all the menu combinations provided by the U.S. Army Natick Research, Development and Engineering Center Natick. This design uses paper napkin material to date the heat-sensitive food during retorting.
