Course Brochure (2nd page has payment by check option)
This short course is a unique opportunity to learn about and discuss the delivery of fresh-like food quality and potential health benefits and other unique advantages of the leading advanced food processing and preservation technologies with their developers.
The course will feature presentations and demonstrations by graduate students from four leading universities working on advanced processing technologies. Instructors are from UC Davis, Ohio State University, US Natick Army Soldier Center, Washington State University, and North Carolina State University.
Three of the featured technologies have recently received letters of no objection from FDA, and have been recognized with major awards by the Institute of Food Technologists:
2009 IFT Food Expo Innovation Award for the Pressure Assisted Thermal Sterilization (PATS);
2009 IFT Food Technology Industrial Achievement Award for the Continuous Flow Microwave Sterilization and 2010 IFT Research and Development Award for Microwave Sterilization for Pre-packaged Foods.
This course is supported by USDA NRI Project No: 2009-55503-05198: “Quality of Foods Processed Using Selected Alternate Processing Technologies”, with participation by the University of California, Davis; Ohio State University; North Carolina State University; Washington State University; and U.S. Natick Army Soldier Center.
This course is designed for B.S. level (or above) food scientists, engineers, biochemists and microbiologists currently working in the food industry, and for representatives from management. In addition, the course will be of interest to government officials, process authorities and researchers who are trying to evaluate the benefits of these new technologies.
Where to Stay in Davis This is a list of nearby lodging. The Aggie Inn and the Best Western University Lodge are the two closest places (walkable), but they are all quite nearby, with the exception of the two places on Chiles Road.
An Advanced Process Technologies course was last offered in April 2006. (See here for the webcast of the course from 2006.)
