1 next to ^ Clarence Birdseye is considered the founder of the modern frozen food industry. He noticed that Fsh that are very quickly frozen will appear fresh upon thawing. Birdseye then began to take out a series of patents on quick- freezing, whereby foods are frozen so quickly that only small ice crystals can form and cell walls are not damaged. In 1929 Birdseye sold his company and patents for $22 million to General Foods Corporation , and which founded the Birds Eye ±rosted ±ood Company. Beyond Canned Foods: Examples of Advanced Processing • Aseptic Processing Ohmic Heating Irradiation • High Pressure Processing • Pulsed Electric Field • High Intensity Pulsed Light In conjunction with: • Membrane Filtration • Ozonation Food preservation technologies must render products free of pathogenic microorganisms.

2 The idea of forming, filling and sealing packaging from a paper tube has been attributed to Ruben Rausing. This means that the whole process could take place without interruption, if the paper web is continuously formed into a cylinder. The big problem was to obtain the correct amount in each packaging unit because milk foamed upon filling. Ruben Rausing has himself recounted how the question found its solution: “One day at lunch at home I was talking with my wife about this. Suddenly she said ‘Why don’t you continuously fill milk into the tube (. ..) and then seal it through the milk?’. After the first invention in 1944 it took nearly 10 years until a feasible material could be produced on a large scale. Ruben Rausing summarized the extent of the problem: “Doing something that nobody else has done before is actually quite hard.” Before his death in 1983 , Ruben Rausing was Sweden's richest person Aseptic Packaging Paper provides stiffness, strength and the efficient brick shape to the package. Polyethylene on the innermost layer forms the seals that make the package liquid-tight. A protective coating on the exterior keeps the package dry and provides a unique printing surface for nutritional information and graphic design. Aluminum forms a barrier against light and oxygen. This ultra-thin layer of foil eliminates the need for refrigeration and prevents spoilage without using preservatives. The aseptic packaging process has been named "the most significant food science innovation of the last 50 years," by the Institute of Food Technologists
