Effect of hybrid gas-liquid electrical discharge on liquid foods (milk)

  Pulsed high voltage discharges have been recently developed as sterilization method to replace the traditional thermal processes for the sterilization of liquid foods such as milk. The gas-liquid hybrid discharge (HD) reactor consists ofplexiglas cylinder containing the liquid of high voltage electrode above liquid’s surface and grounded electrode submerged in the liquid. The HD could produce both arc...

Quality estimation of cashew gum in the production of chocolate pebbles
