Providing beef liver for raw consumption was banned in Japan on July 1, 2012. To lift the ban, the establishment of effective countermeasures for safe raw consumption is necessary. In this study, we examined the effects of high hydrostatic pressure processing on raw beef liver. Beef liver samples subjected to 300 MPa of pressure or higher for 10 min at 25°C became firmer and showed a paler color and were considered unsuitable for raw consumption. More than 3.0 log reductions of bacteria were seen after treatments at 400 and 500 MPa, but the treatment with lower pressure did not show enough microcidal effects for safe consumption. Histological and ultrastructural analysis revealed that high hydrostatic pressure processing increased mitochondrial swelling and reduced rough endoplasmic reticula in hepatocytes, and such changes might be related to the observed changes of texture in the treated raw beef liver.

Peanut butter has been associated with several large foodborne salmonellosis outbreaks. This research investigates the potential of high hydrostatic pressure processing (HPP) for inactivation of Salmonella in peanut butter of modified composition, both by modifying its water activity as well by the addition of various amounts of nisin. A cocktail of six Salmonella strains associated with peanut butter and nut-related outbreaks was used for all experiments. Different volumes of sterile distilled water were added to peanut butter to increase water activity, and different volumes of peanut oil were added to decrease water activity. Inactivation in 12% fat, light roast, partially defatted peanut flour, and peanut oil was also quantified. Nisaplin was incorporated into peanut butter at four concentrations corresponding to 2.5, 5.0, 12.5, and 25.0 ppm of pure nisin. All samples were subjected to 600 MPa for 18 min. A steady and statistically significant increase in log reduction was seen as added moisture was increased from 50 to 90%. The color of all peanut butter samples containing added moisture contents darkened after high pressure processing. The addition of peanut oil to further lower the water activity of peanut butter further reduced the effectiveness of HPP. Just over a 1-log reduction was obtained in peanut flour, while inactivation to below detection limits (2 log CFU/g) was observed in peanut oil. Nisin alone without HPP had no effect. Recovery of Salmonella after a combined nisin and HPP treatment did show increased log reduction with longer storage times. The maximum log reduction of Salmonella achieved was 1.7 log CFU/g, which was comparable to that achieved by noncycling pressure treatment alone. High pressure processing alone or with other formulation modification, including added nisin, is not a suitable technology to manage the microbiological safety of Salmonella-contaminated peanut butter.

Jussara (Euterpe edulis) fruit is a strong candidate for exportation due to its high content of anthocyanins. However, its rapid perishability impairs its potential for further economic exploration, highlighting the relevance of producing ready-to-drink juices by applying innovative processing, such as high hydrostatic pressure (HHP). The effect of HHP (200, 350, and 500 MPa for 5, 7.5, and 10 min) on anthocyanins content and antioxidant activity (AA) by FRAP and TEAC assays, and the most effective HHP condition on overall sensory acceptance and stability of jussara juice, were investigated. While mild pressurization (200 MPa for 5 min) retained anthocyanins and AA, 82% of anthocyanins content and 46% of TEAC values were lost at the most extreme pressurization condition (500 MPa for 10 min). The addition of 12.5% sucrose was the ideal for jussara juice consumer acceptance. No significant difference was observed for overall sensory acceptance scores of unprocessed (6.7) and HHP-processed juices (6.8), both juices being well-accepted. However, pressurization was ineffective in promoting the retention of anthocyanins and AA in jussara juice stored at refrigeration temperature for 60 days, probably due to enzymatic browning.
