The history of food conservation

1980s 1970s 1960s The history of food conseruation MEMBRANE FILTERS UHT VACUUM PACKACING The food industry starts to use this particle separation technique to improve food stabilit┼│ and security. The ultra- hight tempera- ture technique is still used to sterilise milk. This technique, that removes all air from the packaging. was applied to cooking by Georges Pralus in the 1960s. Storage and conservation of food has always been a major challenge to feed mankind in times of shortage. And man has always proven very ingenious to come up with efficient, surprising and innovative ways to do that. Here is a brief review, and a sneak peek at the food conservation of the future.
