The "sous-vide", or vacuum cooking, method of food processing is expected to provide fresher food with better taste in less preparation time using fewer cooks. This report examines the possible sources of hazard in the process, such as: (i) micro-organisms that can grow at chill temperatures; (ii) the need for strict temperature control throughout; (iii) physico-chemical changes in foods during processing; (iv) materials used for packaging; (v) handling and storage of the product.
