Grinding grain to make raw flour, home cooking to complex industrial methods that are used to make convenience food are some of the forms that are involved in food processing. There are three types of food processing methods- primary, secondary and tertiary. The aim of primary food processing is to make food edible, while secondary food processing deals with the conversion of the ingredients to familiar food. Food preservation is a method that prevents the growth of microorganisms. It also stops oxidation of fats that cause rancidity in food.
