Preservation usually involves preventing the growth of bacteria, fungi such as 3. This means…. For thousands of years, humans have used methods of preserving food, so that they can store food to eat later. In other 6. Drying dehydrating food is one of the oldest and easiest methods of food preservation. Dehydration is the process of removing water or moisture from a food product.
Food Preservation Techniques
Removing moisture 8. Dehydrated foods are ideal for backpacking, hiking, and camping because they weigh much less than their non-dried counterparts and do not require refrigeration. Drying food is also a way of preserving seasonal foods for later use. How dehydration preserves foods Foods can be spoiledby food microorganisms or through enzymatic reactions within the food. Bacteria, yeast, and molds must have a sufficient amount of moisture around themto grow and cause spoilage. Reducing the moisture content of foodprevents the growthof these spoilage-causing microorganisms and slows down enzymatic reactions that take place within food.
The combination of these events helps to prevent spoilage in driedfood. Pasteurisation is a process that kills bacteria in liquid food. Adam WB Recent advances in food preservation.
