Haven't people ever wondered that, how we can swallow down the a potato if it hasn't been cut into slices or strips? In antient times, people didn't have any advanced or convenient tools to help them with food processing, every time after hunting, they just somked the food over the fire and tore the meat into pieces. With the development of human society, we have had advanced technology and equipments to make ourselves live in an easier way. And then we invented the food cutting machine
, with which, we can cut potatos into any shapes we like and even we can peel the potatos with potato peeler machine
. And how did this machine enter into our lives?
Food processing dates back to the prehistoric ages when crude processing incorporated slaughtering, fermenting, sun drying, preserving with salt, and various types of cooking. Salt-preservation was especially common for foods that constituted warrior and sailors' diets until the introduction of canning methods. Examples of ready-meals also date back to before the preindustrial revolution, and include dishes such as Cornish pasty and Haggis. Both during ancient times and today in modern society these are considered processed foods. Food processing can provide quick, nutritious meal options for busy families.
Modern food processing technology developed in the 19th and 20th centuries was developed in a large part to serve military needs.In the 20th century, food processing with such advances as spray drying, juice concentrates, freeze drying and the introduction of artificial sweeteners, colouring agents, and preservatives such as sodium benzoate has grown rapidly. And the late 20th century witnessed a rise in the pursuit of convenience. Food processing companies marketed their products especially towards middle-class working wives and mothers. Processors utilised the perceived value of time to appeal to the postwar population, and this same appeal contributes to the success of convenience foods today.
