Written for and by dairy and food engineers with experience in the field, this new volume provides a wealth of valuable information on dairy technology and its applications. The book covers devices, standardization, packaging, ingredients, laws and regulatory guidelines, food processing methods, and more.

The first section of the book covers several advanced applications in dairy engineering, including chapters on plant-based coagulants used in cheese making, the rheology of fruit ripple, and role of emulsifying salts in cheese products. Section two focuses on process engineering of dairy products, covering dairy engineering in milk processing and milk products, aseptic food processing and packaging, high pressure processing of dairy products, and an examination of mechanization of traditional Indian dairy products. In the third section, dairy products for human health are addressed, such as health benefits of milk-derived bioactive peptides and potential human health benefits of probiotics. Section four on food laws and regulations covers modern food laws and regulations and their implications and also looks the food laws all over the world. This section also provides the details about entrepreneurship and management of food plants.

With chapters written by those engaged in dairy and food processing related production, research, training, and teaching, the coverage of each topic is comprehensive enough to serve as an overview of the most recent and relevant research and technology. Dairy Engineering: Advanced Technologies and Their Applications will be of value to researchers and faculty of Dairy technology and dairy process engineering and others, students, research centers, libraries, and food processing engineering specialists.
