scientists developed an FSO framework and the principles for its use to control Clostridium botulinum toxin in commercially sterile foods.
The idea of elevating NCFST
to "institute" status was born, and the change was approved by the IIT Executive Committee on Dec.
One small NCFST
study conducted by researchers from UC Davis and Penn State University found that after six weeks on a diet high in tomato products, overweight and obese subjects had increased blood vessel diameter as compared to the controls.
Studies at NCFST
also illustrate HPP success by combining moderate heat of 80 to 110 degrees C with very high-pressure of 130,000 psi.
"Pierpaolo's calculations indicate that the measured bacterial death rates under HPP conditions can be directly attributed to localized temperature changes," notes Charles Sizer, NCFST
's executive director.

Under the directorship of Richard Lechowich, the NCFST
is a research consortium of industry, government and academia that addresses the food safety implications of emerging food processing and packaging technologies.
At the NCFST
, researchers have built a prototype magnetic thermometer to measure temperatures in objects moving through 2-inch diameter or smaller piping.
In Summit-Argo IL, at the National Center for Food Safety and Technology (NCFST
), research into microprocessor-age solutions hints at a nottoo-distant future where dairies will be allowed to replace hard-wired with computerized controls, and a single computer diskette will replace stacks of circular charts.
