Abstract: It has been previously shown that, when compared with the traditional constant retort temperature profiles, variable retort temperature profiles allow a modest increase in quality retention during the sterilization of packed foods. When the minimization of the process time with a constraint on the minimum surface quality is considered, variable retort policies show significant reductions on process times when compared to equivalent optimum constant retort temperature profiles. However the results were presented on a case by case basis and no effort was done to try to generalize this principle.
