Abstract : The objective of these studies was the reduction of food weight and volume while maintaining overall quality, nutritional value, stability and acceptability. Three research and development approaches were pursued: Reversible compression of foods for consumption only in a reconstituted state; Nonreversible compression of foods for consumption only in the compressed state; and, Dual purpose compression of foods for consumption either in the more dense form or after reconstitution to a familiar form.
