The demand of highest quality foods in terms of taste and their properties preservation without the use of additives is constantly increasing. Consequently, new approaches to food processing have been developed, as for example high-pressure technology which has proven to be very valuable because it allows to maintain good properties of food like some vitamins and, at the same time, to reduce some undesirable bacteria. This technology avoids the use of high temperatures during the process (not like Pasteurization), which may have adverse effect on some nutritional properties of the food, its flavour, etc. The models for some enzymatic inactivations, which depend on the pressure and temperature profiles are presented. This work deals with the optimization of the inactivation of certain enzymes when high pressure treatment on food processing is applied. The optimization algorithms will minimize the inactivation not only of a certain isolated enzyme but also to several enzymes that can be involved simultaneously in the high-pressure process.
