Literature review and experimental data of frozen milk products and vegetables quality models

The aim of deliverables 3.2.4.1-3.2.4.4 is to review the tools/methodologies cited in the literature for predicting the evolution of the temperature dependent quality attributes and microbial growth in refrigerated/frozen food for a constant storage temperature or under dynamic conditions. These tools/methodologies will, later on in the FRISBEE project, also evaluate the effect of random fluctuations of refrigeration temperatures on quality and microbial load. The tools will be used for evaluation and optimisation and to develop monitoring and control strategies. The present deliverable 3.2.4.4 comprises a compilation and evaluation of existing microbiological and quality kinetic models and data related to spinach and ice cream under frozen conditions. It is based on an extended literature search with respect to quality and microbiological stability issues for the food products under consideration.
