Earlier, common methods such as use of salts and glucose and sun-drying were used to process cooked or raw foods. But now the process of foods processing has progressed into complex processes like cleaning of foods, removing unwanted things like bones from meat, adding preservatives to make it stay refreshing for a longer period of time, preserving them in cool storage, adding ingredients that make that foods rich in nutrition and superb in taste and last but not the least, packing them in containers that keep them eatable for a long time.
Machines like dryers, machines used for pasteurization, containers used for storing, conveyors, mixers, deep fryers, slice making machine, fillers, choppers, cutters, automatic loading program and quality examining machines are employed for food processing.
