Micro zap Technology To Increase The Shelf Life Of Bread

For long  the researches  and food technologist  have been working for  recipe , chemicals, packaging   or  technology  to increase the shelf  life  of bread   so that there could be control on food waste  in which  stale breads  are major contributor


In  normal condition  the bread shelf  in not more than 4-5 days   for  which the manufacturers have added  preservatives and anti oxidant  which  definitely have some adverse impact on human body . The molds and fungus  gets  appearing from  the 5th or 6 th day  in storage  thus making it  stale .The packaging material which becomes moist  while keeping the bread under wrap contributes to fungal growth . Food technologist have been trying  to  devise  recipes or alternative packaging material  which could  kill these microbes for better shelf life thus reducing food waste  in many countries .


To tackle this  short shelf  issue scientist s and  researches at  Micro zap have invented a new microwave technology  to  kill spores and molds  for higher shelf which could be as  long as 60 days .

A report

In normal conditions bread will go mouldy in around 10 days.
But an American company called  Microzap  says they have developed a technique that will keep the bread mould free for two months.At their laboratory on the campus of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, chief executive Don Stull showed off the long, metallic microwave device that resembles an industrial production line. Originally designed to kill bacteria such as MRSA and salmonella, the researchers discovered it could kill the mould spores in bread in around 10 seconds."We treated a slice of bread in the device, we then checked the mould that was in that bread over time against a control,” he explained."And at 60 days it had the same mould content as it had when it came out of the oven."
 
Micro zap rep  also claims that this technology would not affect  the taste ,texture  and bread would be as fresh as it was on the day of  production .The technology they are putting up is called  cold pasteurization  and as microwave employs pulsed power and multiple radio-frequency sources which will ensure energy is transmitted to the food in an even way.
