Institutions
University of Minnesota
Start date
2020
End date
2025
Objective
The goal of this project is to work with industry and interested stakeholders for the food industry to optimize Intense Pulsed Light technology for future integration into food processing lines for the dairy industry for non-thermal pasteurization of non-fat dry milk powder and other milk byproduct metabolites. This project aims to increase product safety, quality, shelf life, and increase worldwide sales of dairy products by reducing levels of spore-forming bacteria through intense pulsed light treatment.
