Research Project: Joint Research and Development of Improved Types of Processed Vegetable Products by Combining U.S. and Korean Traditional Technology

Location: Food Science Research

Project Number: 6645-41000-007-14
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jan 01, 2012
End Date: Dec 31, 2014

Objective:
To combine traditional Korean vegetable fermentation technology with U.S. pickled vegetable manufacturing methods to develop novel shelf stable, safe fermented vegetable products for U.S., Korean and international markets.

Approach:
The focus will be on fermented cabbage and cucumber products. Brining methods used for traditional Korean fermented vegetable products (kimchi and related fermented vegetables) will be used with U.S. processing and packaging technology. Using the packaging technology used for the U.S. pickle and sauerkraut industry including heat processing in jars, or cold filling jars and flexible packaging with preservatives, the safety and shelf stability of Korean fermented vegetable products will be tested.
