Abstract: Based on a theoretical simulation study, the feasibility of a Bacillus subtilis alpha-amylase based TTI for evaluation of safety of sterilization of low-acid canned foods with an allowed tolerance of 10% was analyzed and its practical usefulness delineated. The enzymic TTI was successfully applied to (i) determine the influence of the end-over-end rotational speed and of the viscosity of the brine on the spatial distribution of process-lethalities in a particulated food model system, thermally treated in a water cascading retort, and to (ii) evaluate the lethality distribution and hence determine the coldest zone in a water cascading retort.
