A study on the efficacy of a new blanching system, Individual Quick Blanch (IQB), as applied to vegetables prior to canning was conducted. Peas, corn, lima beans, green beans, potatoes, carrots and beets were adequately blanched by IQB. Compared to deep bed steam blanching or pipe blanching, IQB generally resulted in a significant reduction in effluent. Slight drying of the vegetables before IQB reduced effluent even more; however, product quality was adversely affected in most cases. It was demonstrated that the IQB process can significantly reduce effluent volume and BOD generation in the blanching operation while adequately fulfilling the objectives of blanching. Recommendations for commercial development of IQB are given.
