Book Description

This fourth edition of this successful textbook succinctly presents the engineering concepts and unit operations used in food processing, in a unique blend of principles with applications. Depth of coverage is very high. The authors use their many years of teaching to present food engineering concepts in a logical progression that covers the standard course curriculum. Both are specialists in engineering and world-renowned. Chapters describe the application of a particular principle followed by the quantitative relationships that define the related processes, solved examples and problems to test understanding.

New chapters on:
-Supplemental processes including filtration, sedimentation, centrifugation, and mixing
-Extrusion processes for foods
-Packaging concepts and shelf life of foods
Expanded information on
Emerging technologies, such as high pressure and pulsed electric field
Transport of granular foods and powders
Process controls and measurements
Design of plate heat exchangers
Impact of fouling in heat transfer processes
Use of dimensional analysis in understanding physical phenomena

From the Back Cover

Based on the authors many years of experience in teaching food engineering to food science students,Introduction to Food Engineering 4thedition clearly present the concepts and unit operations used in food processing using a unique and challenging blend of principles and application.

Each chapter opens with a description of the application of a particular principle, then develops the quantitative relationships that define the related processes. Student comprehension is tested through the presentation of solved-examples and self-test problems. This proven structure encourages critical thinking and problem solving, with emphasis on the application of principles using the example problems.

Created specifically with a typical food engineering course curriculum in mind, the authors have carefully selected illustrations of engineering principles that demonstrate the relationship of engineering to the chemistry, microbiology, nutrition and processing of foods.
