RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN RADIATION STERILIZATION OF FOODS
S OF PAPERS Continued from Page 158 and efficient for the 20-year period. To get this type of service from a hardening room it must be constructed correctly from the very beginning. DetailExpand
COLD STERILIZATION BY ELECTRON BEAM AS A POSSIBLE TOOL FOR THE INACTIVATION OF THE VIRUS OF HOMOLOGOUS SERUM JAUNDICE IN PLASMA
  • W. Huber
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1952
TLDR
The remarkable efficacy of high intensity electrons in effecting sterilization, as well as prolongation of storage time of organic matter, is by now a well established Sterilization doses of high htensity electrons cause a temperature rise in the absorber of not more than 3.6”C, and this method of “cold sterilization” was bound to be of considerable practical significance. Expand
RADIATION STERILIZATION I
TLDR
The recent availability of intense sources (1,000 curie) of radioactive isotopes (Manowitz, 1951) and the potential availability of even more intense radioactive by-products from the atomic energy program make investigation of these new radiation sources of interest. Expand
Food irradiation: The “reluctant” food additive for all agendas
Abstract From its early discovery period around the turn of the century to the mid‐1950s, food irradiation research and development and patenting proceeded quietly in the centers and laboratories ofExpand
Irradiation and heating effects on microbiological, physicochemical, and sensory characteristics of ground pork
Radiation resistance of Listeria monocytogenes Scott A in ground pork, packaged in air and under vacuum, was studied at the irradiation temperatures of 2°C (refigerated) and 48''C (heated). MoreExpand
Preservation of foods and drugs by ionizing radiations.
  • W. D. Bellamy
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Advances in applied microbiology
  • 1959
TLDR
This chapter discusses the preservation of foods and drugs by ionizing radiations by supplementing the conventional methods of thermal processing, freezing, and drying but supplements them in restricted areas, depending upon many parameters. Expand
EFFECT OF HIGH ENERGY CATHODE RAYS ON THE CATALASE ACTIVITY OF MICROCOCCUS PYOGENES VAR. AUREUS
TLDR
The present study was designed to determine the effect of a lethal dose of cathode rays on the catalase activity of a pure culture of Micrococcus pyogenes var. Expand
Treatment of meats with ionising radiations. VII.—effect of low temperatures during irradiation†
Raw pork and beef have been irradiated with 2 MeV electrons at controlled temperatures from + 18° to −296°. Appearance, odour and flavour were assessed by a taste panel, the destruction ofExpand
The present status of radiation preservation of food products--fish.
  • J. M. Shewan
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The International journal of applied radiation and isotopes
  • 1959
TLDR
Provided the more obvious defects in the present process can be overcome, it seems likely that this new technique could revolutionize the present methods of marketing unfrozen fish to inland populations far from the ports. Expand
Radiation Sterilization of Prototype Military Foods: Low-Temperature Irradiation of Codfish Cake, Corned Beef, and Pork Sausage
“Screening” packs comprising 10 lots each of codfish cake, corned beef, and pork sausage, each lot containing about 106 spores of a different strain (five type A and five type B) of ClostridiumExpand
