Food Processing Technology: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition, has been updated and extended to include the many developments that have taken place since the third edition was published. The new edition includes an overview of the component subjects in food science and technology, processing stages, important aspects of food industry management not otherwise considered (e.g. financial management, marketing, food laws and food industry regulation), value chains, the global food industry, and over-arching considerations (e.g. environmental issues and sustainability). In addition, there are new chapters on industrial cooking, heat removal, storage, and distribution, along with updates on all the remaining chapters. This updated edition consolidates the position of this foundational book as the best single-volume introduction to food manufacturing technologies available, remaining as the most adopted standard text for many food science and technology courses. Updated edition completely revised with new developments on all the processing stages and aspects of food industry management not otherwise considered (e.g. financial management, marketing, food laws, and food industry regulation), and more Introduces a range of processing techniques that are used in food manufacturing Explains the key principles of each process, including the equipment used and the effects of processing on micro-organisms that contaminate foods Describes post-processing operations, including packaging and distribution logistics Includes extra textbook elements, such as videos and calculations slides, in addition to summaries of key points in each chapter

This monograph provides detailed background on the image processing problems encountered in the food industry when automatic control and inspection systems are being designed and installed. It starts with a careful study of image processing and machine vision methodology, and then goes on to analyse how this can be applied in the main areas of food processing and production. A case study approach is used to give relevance to the work, making the book user-friendly. This book will help the food industry to observe 'due diligence', and researchers to be more aware of the problems of analysing images of food products.
Providing a clear, comprehensive overview of the industry, Snack Foods Processing is the definitive handbook on developing, preparing, and processing shelf-stable savory snack foods. Contributors from leading companies and academic institutions provide practical information and guidance based on years of industry experience. Collectively, they review the principles and critical specifics of processing savory snacks, starting from raw materials selection and care, through types of equipment used and its proper operation, to product seasoning, and packaging. The book covers every major product type, including potato and corn chips, alkali-cooked corn tortilla chips, pretzels, popcorn, extruder puffed and baked/fried products, half-products, meat snacks, and rice-based snacks. It also discusses international snack foods, including those of China, India, and Japan. It details post shaping and drying operations, covering seasonings, flavorings application, product protection and packaging materials, and filling and cartoning equipment. Whether you are new to the field or you are a pro facing broader responsibilities, Snack Foods Processing provides valuable information gained through first-hand experience. It presents a clear introduction to the snack foods industry and its terminology and explains the technical interrelationships between the many materials and processes used in making the finished snack food. New entrants into the field will be able to confidently communicate with suppliers and associates. Managers and quality control personnel will gain a better idea of where to start in solving problems when they arise.
Covers the fundamentals and the latest advances in computerized automation and process control, control algorithms, and specific applications essential food manufacturing processes and unit operations. This text highlights the use of efficient process control to convert from batch to continuous operation and enhance plant sanitation. It compares both established and innovative control schemes.
An Aspen Food Engineering Series Book. This new edition provides a comprehensive reference on food microstructure, emphasizing its interdisciplinary nature, rooted in the scientific principles of food materials science and physical chemistry. The book details the techniques available to study food microstructure, examines the microstructure of basic food components and its relation to quality, and explores how microstructure is affected by specific unit operations in food process engineering. Descriptions of a number of food-related applications provide a better understanding of the complexities of the microstructural approach to food processing. Color plates.
This book focuses on the most common unit operations utilized in modern food processing operations. It contains both descriptive and quantitative analysis of the typical food processes found in modern food processing plants. The descriptive information provides students with background on the process and the impact of the process on food product quality. The quantitative description assists the student in understanding the ability of the process to achieve the desired result and the consequences of improper operation of the process. Examples utilizing different food commodities are incorporated to ensure that the student gains an appreciation of the relationship between commodities and processes.
The second edition of Emerging Technologies in Food Processing presents essential, authoritative, and complete literature and research data from the past ten years. It is a complete resource offering the latest technological innovations in food processing today, and includes vital information in research and development for the food processing industry. It covers the latest advances in non-thermal processing including high pressure, pulsed electric fields, radiofrequency, high intensity pulsed light, ultrasound, irradiation, and addresses the newest hurdles in technology where extensive research has been carried out. Provides an extensive list of research sources to further research development Presents current and thorough research results and critical reviews Includes the most recent technologies used for shelf life extension, bioprocessing simulation and optimization
The emergence of ‘minimal’ processing techniques, which have a limited impact on a food’s nutritional and sensory properties, has been a major new development in the food industry. This book provides an authoritative review of the range of minimal techniques currently available, their applications and safety and quality issues. Reviews the range of minimal processing techniques, their advantages and disadvantages and their use in food production Discusses the range of thermal technologies, such as infrared heating, ohmic heating, and dielectric methods, including the use of microwaves Presents alternatives to thermal processing, ranging from irradiation to high pressure processing and the use of pulsed electric fields
The book provides comprehensive coverage of the processing and preservation aspects of food science that include chemical, microbiological and technological processes on the one hand, and assessment of food quality and safety, new and modified foods by fermentation, food-boene diseases and food spoilage on the other. The preservation operations involving the use of high and low temperatures and radiation have also been discussed in detail. Intended as a textbook for undergraduate students of science and engineering, this study would also be of great help to postgraduate students offering courses in food science, and to professionals as well as academicians.
This book addresses the future development of ultrasound in food processing, covering both High Power (material altering) and Low Power (non-destructive testing) applications. Leading work is presented for a non-expert audience, so that people in industry and academia can make informed decisions about future research and the adoption of ultrasound techniques. It will be of particular interest to food manufacturing personnel responsible for process development, engineering and research. It will be invaluable for scientists and technologists involved in active ultrasound research and instrument manufacture.
