Abstract

In the publication the authors present the results of the applying of two modern technologies for long term and safe vegetable preservation - freeze-drying and gamma sterilization. The freeze-dried vegetables feature minimum moisture - from 2-5% and taste-aroma complex preserved to the highest degree. The carried out gamma sterilization ensures a high microbial purity of the vegetables and guarantees for their long term preservation (up to 5 years) in polymer packing, under usual conditions.
