High Hydrostatic Pressure

High Hydrostatic Pressure

Secalim's work on High Pressure began in the 1990s. They are the result of a collaboration between UMR Gepea d'Oniris and CTCPA Nantes. Studies on High Pressure Processing belong to both thematics 1: Understand the bacterial behaviour and, 2, Assess the safety risk, whether mechanistic studies are performed to understand the lethality of HPP or if predictive modeling is rather used to quantify the inactivation induced by the treatment.

Recent projects on High pressure are the ANR BLacHP which aimed to extend the shelf-life of diced-ham by combining biopreservation and high pressure. The most recent one is SHPORE, a Carnot Institute Qualiment project.
