Consumers demand food products that are safe, of high quality, nutritious and minimally processed. These demands are difficult to meet through the use of conventional processing technologies. Therefore, the academic and industrial sectors are exploring alternatives. Novel food processing technologies can potentially provide the means to meet consumer demands. The results of this PhD thesis contribute to the need for further information on how novel processing technologies, specifically high pressure processing, cold plasma and microwave heating, can ensure microbiological safety, and retain or improve quality and nutrient content for a very important segment of the food industry, namely, convenience foods.
