They contain essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients that are essential for good health. In fact, research has shown that a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Key Nutrients in Fruits and Vegetables to that indicate Food product which has not undergone any processing or is fresh food. The term “fresh” is now used generically fruit and vegetables have not been processed (e.g. canned, pickled, preserved or frozen). Fruit and vegetables that have been washed and/or trimmed described as fresh, an indication provided (tags) they have been washed and/or trimmed is evident. In various food product “fresh” implies different meaning. Like, in meat, fresh can be used to differentiate raw meat from that which has been (chemically) preserved. In fish, if kept chilled can be called fresh. In fruit juice, the term “fresh” is not used on juices made “freshly squeezed” is only used to describe juice extracted from the fruit (not prepared from concentrate) where only a short time has elapsed between extraction and packing. In fresh bread, when using terms such as “freshly baked”, “baked in store” and “oven fresh” the implication is that the bread is freshly produced on-site from raw ingredients. from concentrates and (usually packed However, some stores sell bread made from part- baked products inert atmosphere or frozen off-site) which are then baked in-store.

Vol .03-Issue .02-January 2024 PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER Introduction to Frozen foods Conclusion People make food choices for complex reasons taste, price, and convenience may trump perceived nutritional value. But there's no doubt that for taste and nutrient quality, you can't beat recently fresh- picked local produce. On the other hand, if fresh produce is unavailable, inconvenient, out of season, or beyond your budget, frozen products provide plenty of nutrition. Frozen foods are an affordable way to get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables. In fact, families who incorporate frozen foods into their normal routine may have better diet quality. With so many choices in the frozen foods aisle, there are plenty of opportunities to find something you like. Fruits and vegetables are picked at peak ripeness and often frozen within hours, locking in nutrients and flavor. Generally, frozen foods retain their vitamins and minerals and there is no change to the carbohydrate, protein or fat content. Fresh or frozen: What's the difference? 1. The carbohydrate, protein, fiber, and mineral content are similar between fresh and frozen. 2. Fresh food can lose half of its vitamins and phytonutrients during storage or cooking. 3. Fewer of the fat-soluble vitamins A and E are lost in the frozen packaging process compared with water-soluble vitamins like C. 4. Frozen produce may contain more vitamins and phytonutrients than days-old fresh items, though additional cooking and storage after defrosting may close that gap. PMG DESIGN+BUILD FOOD FACTORIES. ONE STOP ENGINEERING SOLUTION Vol .03-Issue .02-January 2024 INTRODUCTION TO EDIBLE OILS Introduction to Oils and fats form an essential part of the modern diet and have been used for the preparation of food since time immemorial. These are rich source of dietary energy and contain more than twice the calorific value equivalent the amount of carbohydrates. Functionality of oils and fats not only adds flavor in the food, but it also increases the nutritional value of food also. They serve as a heat transfer medium at elevated temperatures (e.g., frying), improve taste sensation (spreads and salad dressings), give texture and flavor to a wide range of foodstuffs, supply a concentrated source of energy, deliver critical building elements for the body and act as a carrier for essential minor components like vitamins A and D. resulting “triglycerides” Fats and oils are constructed of building blocks called the combination of one unit of glycerol and three units of fatty acids. They are insoluble in water but soluble in most organic solvents. They have lower densities than water, and may have consistencies at ambient temperature of solid, semisolid, or clear liquid. from When they are solid appearing at normal room temperature, they are referred to as “fats,” and when they are liquid at that temperature, they are called “oils.” Fats and oils are classified as “lipids” which is a category that embraces a broad variety of chemical substances. In addition to triglycerides, it diglycerides, phosphatides, cerebrosides, sterols, terpenes, fatty alcohols, fatty acids, fat-soluble vitamins, and other substances. includes mono- also and Classification of Edible Oil- Source of Raw Material Based on the source of raw materials, edible oil can be classified into three groups: 1.Animal Oil: It refers to the oil obtained from animals, such as beef oil, pig, fish, etc. It refers to oils extracted 2.Vegetable Oil: /processed from plant roots, stems, leaves, fruits, flowers, or seeds tissue.

Vol .03-Issue .02-January 2024 Classification of Edible oil- Type of Processing Method Used Based on type of processing the edible oil receives, into following categories: it can be classified 1.Hot Pressed Oil: These oils are extracted by pressing them at high temperatures due to which acidity of oil increases significantly and it loses its natural quality. These oils require most of refinement for human them consumption. for making fit temperature, 2.Cold Pressed Oil: Unlike hot pressed oils, extraction process for these oils takes place at room 27 degrees at centigrade due to which acid value is relatively low. These oil products can be directly consumed after precipitation and filtration and thus do not require any chemical refinement process. around 5.Hydrogenated Oil: Generally, most of the oils are typically liquid at room temperature, therefore many companies use hydrogenation to get a more solid and spreadable process, hydrogen molecules are added to alter the texture, stability, and shelf final product. life of Hydrogenated oils are also used in many baked goods to improve taste and texture. consistency. During this the 5.Blended Oil: Blended edible oil means an admixture of any two edible oils where the proportion by weight of any edible oil used in the admixture is not less than 20 percent. The blended mixture shall be clear, free from rancidity, suspended or insoluble matter or any other foreign matter, separated water, added coloring matter, flavoring substances, mineral oil, or any other animal and non-edible oils, or fats, argemone oils, hydrocyanic acid, castor oil and tricresyl phosphate. 3.Leached Oil: When oil is extracted from the crushed mass of plant/animal biomass with the help of solvent, then this kind of oil is known as Leached oil. The leaching process depends mainly on the chemical structure of the solvent and the kind of solute that will be extracted from solid material. 4.Refined oil: Edible oils purchased in stores are known as "RBD" oils. These are oils that have been Refined, Bleached and Deodorized. Each of these steps is used to create a final oil that is consistent in taste, color and stability. As a result, these oils are generally tasteless, odorless, and colorless regardless of the original oilseed type or quality. PMG DESIGN+BUILD FOOD FACTORIES.
