Abstract

The knowledge of the electrical properties of the materials to be processed or measured is important in the design of the equipment. Dielectric properties determine the behavior of the materials, when subjected to high frequency or microwave fields in dielectric heating processes or cooking. This article is a review of the measurement techniques of the dielectrical properties of food materials. This study also includes the classification of electrical properties and their importance in food processing.
