And Geveke and his colleagues are evidently the first to pair RF heating with a hot-water bath to pasteurize raw shell eggs.
Though the specialty market is an obvious application of the RF-heating process, it could of course be used to pasteurize all of the more than 221 million fresh shell eggs produced in the United States every day.
The objective of scientists at the University of Illinois was to determine the feasibility of using ultrasound to pasteurize
Recently, USDA-ARS engineers have developed a better, faster way to pasteurize
raw shell eggs without ruining their taste, texture, color or other important characteristics.
In a recent study, the scientists applied pulsed ohmic heating to pasteurize
* You can safely eat a soft-boiled egg- Cooking an egg at 140 degree for three and a half minutes pasteurizes
it--that is, kills all bacteria.
USDA-ARS scientists have developed a process that rapidly pasteurizes
eggs and which could sharply reduce the number of illnesses caused each year by egg-borne Salmonella.
