Expert in Food Processing Quality and Safety
Expert ID: 720113 Washington, USA
Expert has conducted both fundamental synthetic and applied food product development research with the saccharide fatty acid polyester fat substitutes. He is familiar with synthetic fat substitutes and the other fat replacers prepared from carbohydrates, proteins, cellulose, or pectin. Additionally, he knowledgeable of reduced and lowfat cheese technology.
Expert has extensive experience and expertise in evaluating and interpreting scanning electron micrographs (SEMs). He has particular expertise with SEM of plant material and dairy products.
Expert initiated research on the nonthermal food processing potential of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP), high intensity pulsed electric fields (PEF) and oscillating magnetic field technologies. The nonthermal processing technologies are relatively new and involve inactivation of microorganisms and enzymes to improve the shelf-life of foods. He also has expertise in engineering food microbiology (safety) and quality aspects of HHP and pulsed electric field pasteurization.
Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Spokane, Washington - Kennewick, Washington
