In the Beverage industry, thermal pasteurization and sterilization are important and a critical step to produce safe liquid food products. Thermal pasteurization aims at inactivating vegetative microorganisms (pathogenic and spoilage type) and enzymes while thermal sterilization is a more severe treatment that target destruction of all microbial forms, including spores. The industry uses different temperature-time combinations during these operations to achieve necessary microbial reduction and thereby shelf life. However, exposure to high temperatures results in the deterioration of nutrition value, texture, colour and flavour of beverages. Presently, numerous studies have been done to reduce the heat intensity during pasteurization/sterilization using different technologies such as Pulsed Electric Filed (PEF), Ultraviolet (UV), High Pressure Processing (HPP), Ohmic Heating (OH) and Microwave Heating (MH) and also using hurdle technologies mainly in combination with heat. This Special Issue comprises a wide range of high quality articles serving to highlight emerging technologies that would assist in improving these important unit operations in the beverage industry.
