Explores food process engineering in a changing world
The International Congress on Engineering and Food (ICEF) has been established as the major international event in the field of Food Engineering. The 11th International Congress on Engineering and Food (ICEF11) took place in Athens, May 22-26, 2011 (www.icef11.org). Papers presented in ICEF11 included topics in Food Materials Science, Engineering Properties of Foods, Advances in Food Process Technology, Novel Food Processes, Food Product Engineering & Functional Foods, Food Waste Engineering, Hygienic Design and Operation of Food Plants, Modeling & Control of Food Processes, Food Process Design & Economics, Modeling Food Safety & Quality, and Innovation Management. This book is based on invited contributions to the Congress.
