Abstract: Electroporation is an innovative method in food processing to support the extraction of substances from cells. By applying a pulsed electric field to the tissue, the cell membranes are charged and pores are formed in the membranes fostering the extraction. Although this principle is common to all electroporation devices, due to the different properties of each material, the devices and processes have to be designed for each application individually. The publication gives an overview on the advantages
of electroporation for the processing of crushed grapes, sugar beets, and energy crop, and also on the design of electroporation devices for these applications.
