Filtered bright and unfiltered hazy lager beer samples were either treated with high hydrostatic pressure (200, 250, 300, 350 MPa for 3, 5 and 10 min at 10°C and 20°C) or conventional heat pasteurization (60°C for 15 min). Treatments did not affect ethanol, extract, fermentation degree, density and pH in comparison with untreated beers. Both treatments produced microbiologically stable products. Bitterness, color, protein sensitivity and chill haze parameters were affected by both the HHP and heat treatment. A storage period of 56 days showed that HHP and heat pasteurization had similar results in terms of pH and color. However, HHP treated samples had lower bitterness and protein sensitivity and higher chill haze values than the heat pasteurized samples which indicates HHP treatment had a positive effect on bitterness and protein sensitivity at the end of the storage period. The microbiological stability of HHP treated beers was comparable with heat-treated beers, and the development of both lactic and acetic acid bacteria was inhibited for 56 days of storage. Unfiltered beer samples had 7. 48, 7.15 and 2.64 log10cfu/ml of total yeasts, total aerobic and lactic acid bacteria counts, respectively. No colony formation of lactic acid bacteria was observed when the samples were pressurized at pressures equal to or higher than 300 MPa at 10°C and 20°C for 5 and 10 min. Total aerobic and total yeasts counts demonstrated more than 6 and 7 log-cycle reduction when pressurized at 350 MPa at 10°C and 20°C for 10 min, respectively. Heat treatment gave similar results in terms of log reductions as HHP.

Filtered bright lager beer samples were either treated with high hydrostatic pressure (HHP, 350 MPa for 3 and 5 min at 20 C) or conventional heat pasteurization (60 C for 15 min). A storage period of 56 days showed that HHP and heat pasteurization had similar results in terms of pH and color (p<0.05). However HHP-treated samples had lower bitterness and protein sensitivity and higher chill haze values than the heat pasteurized samples at the end of the storage period.

Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on quality parameters of lager beer
Buzrul, S; Alpas, Hami; Bozoglu, F (Wiley, 2005-08-15)
Unpasteurized lager beer samples from a commercial brewery were treated either by high hydrostatic pressure (HHP; 200, 250, 300, 3SOMPa for 3 and 5min at 20 degrees C) or by conventional heat pasteurization (60 degrees C for 15 min). The main attributes of the beer, such as ethanol content, extract and pH, were not affected by either treatment; however HHP and heat pasteurization affected colour, chill haze, protein sensitivity and bitterness. Change in bitterness was higher in conventional heat pasteurizat...
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on microbial load and quality parameters of grape juice
Mert, Mecnun; Alpas, Hami; Department of Food Engineering (2010)
Effect of high hydrostatic pressure (150-200-250 MPa) on the microbial load and quality parameters (pH, color, 5-hydroxymethylfurfural-HMF) of white (Sultaniye) and red (Alicante Bouschet) grape juices with combination of temperature (20-30-40°C) and holding time (5-10-15 min) was studied. Increased pressure and temperature showed significant effect on microbial reduction in white and red grape juices (p<0.05). The effect of pressure and time on pH drop was found to be insignificant (p>0.05). HHP resulted i...
Effects of high hydrostatic pressure on microflora and some quality attributes of grape juice
MERT, Mecnun; BUZRUL, Sencer; Alpas, Hami (2013-03-01)
Red and white grape juices were treated with high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) at three different pressures, temperature and time values to investigate the effects of HHP on natural microflora and some quality attributes of the juices. Increased pressure, temperature and time showed significant effect on the microbial reduction and no microbial growth were observed in HHP-treated grape juices up to 90 days. HHP had little or no effect on pH and color of the juices. Although 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) forma...

The quality and shelf-life of pressure processed (150, 200 and 250 MPa at 25 and 35°C for 5, 10 and 15 minutes) orange, tomato and carrot juices were compared to fresh and thermally pasteurised (60°C for 5, 10 and 15 minutes and 80°C for 1 minute) juices. Treatments were capable of microbial inhibition of juices to non-detectable levels. The change in ascorbic acid content of HHP treated juices was not statistically significant (p>0.05). Both heat treatments at 60 and 80°C, displayed a significant loss and ...
