Food processing implies transforming raw ingredients like fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, dairy products and cereals into marketable products that can be preserved for a longer time and that can be served directly from the packaging or imply easy preparation. Some of the activities usually involved during the process include cutting, slicing, washing, drying, freezing, mincing, macerating, emulsification, boiling, broiling, frying, grilling, pickling, pasteurization or other preservation methods, depending on each specific kind of food that is produced and the needs for each of the ingredients. One of the main benefits of food processing, apart from extending the preservation time, enabling the transportation of perishable foods for export and prolonging the shelf life of the products, is providing safe products by removing the toxins in some raw ingredients and, implicitly, reducing the risks of food borne poisoning and other diseases.
