Salmonella control programs on layer farms have helped to make table egg consumption safer than ever in many countries, but improvement is expected by regulators and consumers. Heating table eggs in water baths coupled with a hot-air heating
system is the primary method available for pasteurizing table eggs. Microsystems
First Inc. has developed technology for using microwaves to pasteurize table eggs.

Microwave pasteurization
Microsystems First's apparatus directs microwaves at the egg with a slotted waveguide applicator. The company says the issue of non-uniformity in microwave heating
was overcome by optimizing the power density used for the process and by rotating
the egg during heating. The challenge in any egg pasteurization system is to kill the
microbes without denaturing egg proteins and negatively impacting the quality attributes of the raw egg. The company claims its system has accomplished this.
Satyanarayan Dev, vice president for research, Microsystems First Inc., will
discuss how the system works and share trial results at the 2019 Poultry Tech
Summit. Dev, who is also on the faculty of the engineering and the chemical
and biomedical engineering programs at Florida A&M University, says the system could be installed inline in egg grading and packing facilities.
The market for pasteurized shell eggs is small, but with increased societal focus on
food safety and the high elderly population in countries with advanced economies, the
demand for efficiently produced pasteurized shell eggs could grow significantly. ■

The Poultry Tech Summit is presented by WATT
Global Media in collaboration with the Georgia
TECH SUMMIT
Tech Research Institute, USPOULTRY, and the University of Georgia with
support from the World's Poultry Science Association.
