? My products should also be suitable for vegetarians of all ages, for example, nuts should not be included in the sandwich fillers because they are not suitable for young children. Health and safety Food that is safe to eat involves food hygiene. Premises, staff and equipment have to be clean. Food must be handled safely and prepared in clean surroundings. Everybody involved in food production should have training about safety and illness. Bad food hygiene can lead to outbreaks of food poisoning. The groups that are particularly vulnerable are: the elderly, very young children and people who are already ill. Potential for cross contamination in commercial food preparation. The people in the factories that deal with the food have to wear special clothes. They have to wear: ? A hat that completely covers their hair ? A white coat ? White gloves ? White trousers ? White boots or shoes ? Beard/ Hair nets They have to put these clothes on before they enter the food areas. They are not allowed to wear any jewellery except for a wedding ring. They have to wash their hands in a separate sink. If they have an accident, a blue plaster must be worn and the accident must also be recorded. Food processing plant factory rules We manufacture human foods that meet strict standards, and therefore remind you of the company rules: 1. Persons with upset stomachs are not allowed on site 2. Eating and drinking permitted in the canteen only 3. Smoking and chewing gum is not permitted on site 4. Hats, hairnets and protective overalls to be worn at all times in production areas 5. Jewellery not allowed, except metal band wedding rings 6. No cigarettes, matches, keys, confectionery, tablets or coins to be taken into production areas 7. No glass of any kind can be brought into the factory 8. Substances must comply with C.O.S.H.H regulations. 9. No perfumes, solvents or strong smelling substances (unless agreed in advance in writing) may be used. ...read more.

Conclusion

Put salsa along the middle of the tortilla 8. Put other ingredients into the tortilla and roll up, then wrap up carefully 9. Tidy up Wash up, dry up, put away equipment, and wipe work surfaces. I am developing my practical from hot and spicy Quorn to a Mexican style hot and spicy product. I am not using mayonnaise, but I am using salsa to hold all the other ingredients together. I also adapted the original recipe which I downloaded from http://www.lowfatveggiefood.co.uk from using mushrooms to using Quorn because in my questionnaires, most of the people I asked would prefer not to have mushrooms in the product, but do like Quorn. Annotated Diagram Vegetarian Fajitas - Packaging I chose this packaging because the foil tray will stop the product from being squashed, and the plastic lid will keep the product fresh until it is opened, giving it a longer 'use by' date. Taste Test Picture of Vegetarian Fajitas Vegetarian Fajitas - Analysis I gave my sandwich filler to four testers; this will make the results more accurate than if I just gave it to one person. I will have a range of results to use. I think I did well on this task, as I followed the flowchart as I planned, and I considered health and safety at all times during the practical. . I think my trial practical was very organised; I had all the equipment and ingredients I needed, including a detailed flowchart for the production of my product. My testers said that the product was very appetising, colourful, and crunchy and it was well presented, and had a very appetising appearance. I was also told the texture was very interesting as there was a range of different textures. I planned my time better for this practical because I left the Quorn sufficient time to cool down before adding the other ingredients. I developed this practical since last time because I improved this by using hot salsa, instead of not using enough chilli powder because it could not be tasted by my testers. ...read more.
