When wheat was irradiated with a 60cobalt source, the thiamin content was not reduced, even after 24 months of storage [35]. In irradiated fruits, retention of vitamin C ranged from 72 to 100%. b-Carotene and vitamin K were stable to the irradiation of vegetables [35]. During storage of irradiated rolled oats, the peroxides formed during fat autoxidation destroyed vitamin E [35]. Vitamin A is also sensitive to irradiation, but as the main sources of this vitamin are dairy products and eggs, this has little nutritional relevance.

There was no loss of riboflavin on irradiation of pork under anaerobic conditions [33]. Irradiated pork retained much more thiamin than canned meats sterilized by heat [34]. Thiamin destruction in meat irradiated in the frozen state was markedly less than when irradiated under ambient conditions [35]. When wheat was irradiated with a 60cobalt source, the thiamin content was not reduced, even after 24 months of storage [35]. In irradiated fruits, retention of vitamin C ranged from 72 to 100%. b-Carotene and vitamin K were stable to the irradiation of vegetables [35].

It is fundamental that the higher the temperature and the shorter the processing time, the greater is the nutrient retention. S. 78C) for 15 sec [20]. Orange juice is traditionally pasteurized by heat treatment at 958C for 15 sec, or at 908C for 1 min [21]. In aseptic packaging, fluid products such as milk and fruit juices are pasteurized by HTST treatment, rapidly cooled, then placed into sterile containers and sealed. The heat treatment is applied to a thin layer of the milk or juice in a heat exchanger, or by direct steam injection.
