Food Process Engineering: Emerging Trends in Research and Their Applications, the fifth volume in the Innovations in Agricultural & Biological Engineering book series, provides a global perspective of present-age frontiers in food process engineering research, innovation, and emerging trends.

Divided into five parts, the book presents new research on

  • new trends and technologies in food processing
  • ultrasonic treatment of foods
  • foods for specific needs
  • food preservation
  • food hazards and their controls

Covering a selection of emerging trends, the authors present new research on food packaging technology, including technology-based drying, freezing, and thawing of foods, as well as industrial, solar, novel, and infrared methods. The volume includes chapters on ultrasonic-assisted derivatization of fatty acids from edible oils and determination by GC-MS and the principles of ultrasonic technology for treatment of milk and milk products. The book also highlights specific food topics, such as natural food colors, the use of pseudocereals, and nutraceutical and functional foods for cardiovascular health. Food preservation is also covered as are food hazards.

Combining scientific depth with practical usefulness, Food Process Engineering: Emerging Trends in Research and Their Applications will be a valuable tool for practicing food process engineers, food technologists and researchers, academia, food industry professions, and students of these fields.
