The global canned food industry is
expected to reach $108 billion by 2022

Innovative product offerings with a focus on convenience, quality and eco-friendliness are expected to drive the market growth.

Time spent on preparing food at home is limited, with most meals being prepared under 30 minutes. Consumers are looking for exciting, healthy food but it needs to be on the table quickly.

Canned foods often provide needed nutrients at a lower cost than fresh, frozen and dried forms, when price, waste and time to prepare are considered.


Food Canning Establishment (FCE) Registration

Because foods without adequate acidity may allow the growth of microorganisms that cause foodborne illness, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) requires commercial processors of shelf stable acidified foods and low-acid canned foods in a hermetically sealed container to be sold in the United States to register each establishment and file scheduled processes for each product, product style, container size and type and processing method.

Failure to comply with these requirements can result in detention of specific shipments or may result in a decision to refuse admission of all products produced by a processor.

ACID FOODS

Acid foods are foods that have a natural pH of 4.6 or below. Processors of acid foods are not required to register and file information about their establishment(s) and foods they process or to provide information on scheduled processes for their foods.

Examples of acid foods include :
apples, oranges, and lemons (as well as the juices expressed from these fruits)
standardized and nonstandardized food dressings (such as mayonnaise) and condiment sauces (such as ketchup) that have a natural pH of 4.6 or below
Tomatoes and tomato products with a finished equilibrium pH that is 4.7 or above are low-acid foods subject to requirements for low-acid foods when those foods are intended for use in hermetically sealed containers. Therefore, tomatoes and tomato products with a finished equilibrium pH greater than 4.6, but below 4.7, do not meet the definitions of acid foods, acidified foods, or low-acid foods.


ACIDIFIED FOODS


Acidified foods are low-acid foods to which acid(s) or acid food(s) are added; they have a water activity greater than 0.85 and have a finished equilibrium pH of 4.6 or below.

Examples of foods that may be acidified foods include :
pickled beets, cocktail onions, and cherry peppers (normally pickled by the addition of acid)
Red bell peppers treated in an acid brine
Some pears and tropical fruits that have a natural pH greater than 4.6 and are acidified to a pH of 4.6 or below
Fermented green olives subjected to processes (such as lye treatment or washing with low-acid foods) that raise the pH above 4.6, with subsequent addition of acid or acid foods to reduce the pH to 4.6 or below
Tomato salsa made from tomatoes with a pH of 4.6 or below and low-acid ingredients, when the amount of low-acid ingredients is not a small amount and/or the resultant finished equilibrium pH differs significantly from that of the predominant acid or acid food
Cold-pack pickles that are subjected to the action of acid-producing microorganisms but require the addition of acid or an acid food to achieve a pH of 4.6 or below.

Carbonated beverages and foods that are stored, distributed, and retailed under refrigeration are excluded from the coverage of 21 CFR part 114 (21 CFR 114.3(b)).

Jams, jellies, and preserves are excluded from the coverage of 21 CFR part 114.

A food containing both acid food(s) and low-acid food(s) may or may not be covered by 21 CFR part 114 as an acidified food.

ANY QUESTION?

Food Process Schedule


A process schedule is designed by a process authority to deliver a “commercially sterile” (FDA) or “shelfstable” (USDA) food product.


The process schedule describes acidification, preservatives, packaging and the application of heat or cooking used to eliminate microorganisms in the product handled under non-refrigerated conditions.


The microbial quality of the final food product is determined by collecting a sample and performing bacterial counts such as aerobic plate count, E.coli, coliforms, yeast and mold counts. The stability (change in water activity or acidity) of the food once canned is another measure of product safety.


The cooking step in making a food product is called a thermal process. A thermal process is established by understanding the food microbiology and processing method for the specific food that is canned. Food spoilage microorganisms are present throughout the environment, packaging containers and ingredients. High temperature kills microorganisms present in food, and the hermitically sealed container prevents re-contamination.
