To Start the Processing Stage:
It is important to acknowledge that there are a variety of components covered in Processing. Those components are not necessarily linear steps and can be grouped into the following categories:
- Scale-Up Logistics & Planning
- Equipment & Flow Diagram
- Analytical Testing
During this period your group will be responsible for perfecting your processable formula. This will include moving to (more) industrial ingredients. You will scale up your formula in the laboratory and under plant conditions. Your group will be involved with processing and process development, food safety and quality research and testing, effects of storage, and issues pertaining to handling, packaging, and shipping.
