Application of High Hydrostatic Pressure to Poultry Processed Products: Microbiological Safety and Shelf-Life


Market constraints lead the industries to favour products with an extended shelf-life. Extending the shelf-life of products is challenging since microorganisms have to be inactivated or inhibited without any detrimental effects on consumers ‘purchase behavior. High hydrostatic pressure treatment is non-thermal microbial inactivation process that can be an alternative to thermal treatment. An ability of high pressure treatment to extend the shelf-life was evaluated on poultry processed products by considering organoleptic and microbiological aspects. We showed that this treatment was able to efficiently inactivate pathogens that have been chosen on the basis of hazard analysis, and to control the spoilage microorganisms. A probabilistic model has been developed and experimentally validated to quantify the prevalence and the contamination level of pathogens at each step of the process. This model is a satisfactory tool to control microbiological safety of products. In addition, sensory analyses enabled to define a window of acceptability for HHP treatments based upon color changes, colour being significantly altered above 400 MPa. Finally, results fromorganoleptic and microbial studies were combined in a risk-risk trade offs framework to extend the shelf-life.
