    The protection of low-acid, high moisture and/or high water activity processed food products against outgrowth of Clostridium botulinum. It was surprisingly found that combinations of propionic acid and/or a salt thereof with nisin are very effective in preventing Clostridium botulinum outgrowth. In certain embodiments, cinnamic acid and/or a salt thereof can be added to these combinations to give particularly good results. These combinations provide a preservative system that is particularly effective against Clostridium botulinum outgrowth. The use of these preservative systems in food products that are conductive to Clostrisium botulinum outgrowth. The food products including these preservative systems and the methods of producing them.

    A concentric symmetrical branched heat exchanger system includes an inlet manifold that divides the product flow evenly in the first section of the system and also includes an array of tubular concentric heat exchangers arranged in parallel and in series. Flow through each leg of the system can be divided further with secondary manifolds. Division of the product flow enables efficient heat exchange at higher and controllable product flow rates and at lower heat exchanger inlet pressures. Having lower inlet pressures reduces the heat exchanger construction cost and allows attachment of cutting or shaping devices at the exchanger exits to create uniquely shaped pieces. The cutting or shaping devices can be installed at the end of the branched heat exchanger to provide cooling and cutting in one process step while eliminating the material handling step of conveying product to and from a blast freezer or similar cooling device.

    A lattice-cut potato product is sliced so that the ridges and grooves on one surface of the slices are oriented transversely to the ridges and grooves on the opposite surface of the slices. The sizes and shapes of the ridges and grooves are particularly selected so that each point in the interior of a slice is no greater than a specified distance from an outer surface of the slice. These parameters enable a lattice-cut potato product to consistently achieve a crispy outer surface and a smooth and creamy interior when cooked by baking or microwaving.

    The present invention provides for passive V0C recovery in the fermentation process that does not affect or minimally affects the conditions within the fermentor vessel and does not affect or minimally affects the conditions within the headspace of the fermentor vessel itself while using the production of CO2 emitted during the fermenting process as the source of driving energy to move a portion of the gaseous/vaporous material in the headspace of the fermentor through an appropriately sized conduit to a chilled surface condensing device to condense the V0Cs (principally ethanol) for recovery and to exhaust the CO2 to the atmosphere or to recover the CO2 for other uses. The conduit from the headspace of the fermentor to the condenser is sized to provide a flow restriction in a selected range such that the headspace equilibria are not affected while allowing a portion of the gaseous/vaporous material in the headspace to move through the conduit in response to the generation of the CO2 during the fermentation process.
