Abstract

The assessment of the microstructural impact of processing on fruits and vegetables is a prerequisite for understanding the relation between processing and textural quality. By combining complementary imaging techniques, one can obtain a multi scale and real-time structural view on the impact of processing on fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are considered rich sources of several essential dietary micro – nutrients, fibres and phytochemicals, therefore the intake of fruits and vegetables has been associated with a wide range of beneficial health effects. A main hurdle for consumers to raise their daily intake is the lack of convenience in preparing foods. The food industry has addressed this by offering the consumer dried fruits and vegetables that are re-hydrated shortly before consumption
