RF Pasteurization Low Moisure Food Safety

What are the main challenges for applying RF energy in the food industry?


The main challenge for RF heating is non-uniform heating due to non-uniform electric field distribution and non-homogenous food products. Therefore, improvement of the RF heating uniformity to ensure a better food quality is always the first concern when developing RF treatment protocols. Another challenge is to reduce the energy cost and initial equipment investment of RF systems, which would make RF technology more acceptable by industry applications.
