Food Safety & Pasteurization

by Catherine Haug

I recently wrote an 1500-word essay on the topic of food safety and pasteurization. It is fairly technical and addresses the following topics:

  • Why is food safety an issue instead of a given?
  • Methods of pasteurization for milk and other foods
  • Discussion of living foods (raw and cultured)
  • Denaturation of proteins by heat (cooking and pasteurization)
  • Destruction of probiotics, enzymes, cofactors and vitamins by pasteurization

To learn more, refer to my essay: Food Safety & Pasteurization (pdf file).
