Better Process Control School for Acidified Foods, April 20-21, 2020 in Lincoln, Nebraska - Presented by the University of Nebraska Food Processing Center

The Food and Drug Administration’s regulations in 21 CFR 108, 113, and 114 became effective May 15, 1979. These regulations are designed to prevent public health problems in low-acid and acidified low-acid canned foods which includes companion animal foods. These products have a high acidity level or a pH below 4.6 and a high level of moisture or a water activity above 0.85. According to the FDA the definition of acidified foods means low-acid foods to which acid or acid foods are added; these foods may include, but are not limited to, beans, cucumbers, cabbage, artichokes, cauliflower, peppers, salsas, some sauces, and fish, singly or in any combination. Exemptions would include acid foods, repacked acidified foods, fermented foods, carbonated beverages, jams, jellies, preserves and refrigerated foods.    
 
By law, each processor of these types of foods must operate with a trained supervisor on hand at all times. The Better Process Control School provides the practical application of the principles set forth by these regulations. The school equips professionals with a scientific understanding of thermal processes and strategies of pathogen control, first and foremost clostridium botulinum.  
 
The Food Processing Center has designed their 1.5 day Better Process Control School for Acidified Foods specifically for individuals with little or no food science or food safety background. It is suitable for anyone requiring this certification, however, it has been designed for small food processors and those selling products at Farmer’s Markets and other local events.

  • FDA Regulations
  • Records for Product Protection
  • Microbiology of Thermally Processed Foods
  • Food Plant Sanitation
