While continuing the tradition of expansive coverage, Fundamentals of Food Process Engineering, Third Edition, has been fully updated and revised. The new edition of this classic text emphasizes problem solving, including technological principles that form the basis for a process so that the process can be better understood and the selection of processing parameters to maximize product quality and safety can be made more effective. In addition, the book contains new, hard-to-find data needed to conduct food process engineering calculations.
New sections reflecting the current state of technology include:
enthalpy change calculations in freezing based on the freezing point depression
interpretation of pump performance curves
determination of shape factors in heat exchange by radiation
unsteady state heat transfer, kinetic data for thermal degradation of foods during thermal processing
pasteurization parameters for shelf-stable high acid foods and long-life refrigerated low acid foods
high pressure processing of fluid and packaged foods
concentration of juices
environmentally friendly refrigerants
modified atmosphere packaging of produce
sorption equations for water activity of solid foods
osmotic pressure and water activity relationships
new membranes commercially available for food processing and waste treatment
supercritical fluid extraction
Written for the upper level undergraduate, Fundamentals of Food Process Engineering, Third Edition, is also a solid reference for the graduate food engineering student and professional.
