The Benefits of Food Processing

Food processing takes place when agricultural products are processed for food consumption. Food processing can include many forms, from grinding grain to make raw flour, to complex industrial methods used to make convenience foods, and many other processing options in between.

Primary food processing is necessary to make most foods edible, such as processing raw wheat kernels or livestock. Secondary food processing turns the ingredients into familiar foods, such as bread. Tertiary food processing further processes the food and is sometimes criticized for promoting bad nutrition and obesity, due to things such as containing too much sugar and salt, too little fiber, and being otherwise unhealthy.

Food processing also has many benefits. Such benefits include toxin removal, preservation, easing marketing and distribution tasks, and increasing food consistency. It also helps increase annual availability of many foods, and allows for transportation of perishable or delicate foods across long distances.

Contamination or spoiled food in primary food processing can cause significant public health threats. Control systems, as well as using sanitary and quality food processing equipment, can help guarantee cleanliness, keeping to food regulations, and making sure food is uncontaminated. Food processing makes many kinds of foods safe to eat by deactivating pathogenic micro-organisms. Processed foods are typically less susceptible to early spoilage than fresh foods and are better suited for long-distance transportation from the source to the consumer.

In addition, it is much cheaper overall to mass produce food than to individually prepare meals from raw ingredients. This creates a large profit potential for food manufacturers and suppliers.
