Research Interests

Dr. Goodrich-Schneider’s research interests include food safety in processing and distribution systems, and the effect of processing on microbial, chemical and nutritional qualities of foods. Special areas include fruit and vegetable processing, as well as beverage and juice technology. Currently funded projects include risk assessment of liquid food tanker truck safety, as well as validation of processes for the ensuring adequate sanitation and defense/security in tanker distribution. Additional funded work included assessment of spore-forming bacterial in tropical fruit juices and purees, mitigation processes to reduce of eliminate these microorganisms, and the development of processing techniques that delivery superior quality and safety.
