Book Description

Long recognized as the bestselling textbook for teaching food engineering to food science students, this 5e transitions with today’s students from traditional textbook learning to integrated presentation of the key concepts of food engineering. Using carefully selected examples, Singh and Heldman demonstrate the relationship of engineering to the chemistry, microbiology, nutrition and processing of foods in a uniquely practical blend. This approach facilitates comprehensive learning that has proven valuable beyond the classroom as a lifetime professional reference.

New to this Edition:

  • Communicates key concepts using audio, video, and animations
  • Integrates interactive tools to aid in understanding complex charts and graphs
  • Features multimedia guide to setting up Excel spreadsheets and working with formulae
  • Demonstrates key processes and engineering in practice through videos
  • Shows the relationship of engineering to the chemistry, microbiology, nutrition and processing of foods via carefully selected examples
  • Presents a practical, unique and challenging blend of principles and applications for comprehensive learning
  • Ideal for classroom use, valuable as a lifetime professional reference

From the Back Cover

Ranging from basic engineering principles, based on fundamental physics, to several applications in food processing, this newly revised and updated edition ofIntroduction to Food Engineering continues to be a valuable teaching and professional reference tool. Within the first four chapters, the concepts of mass and energy balance, thermodynamics, fluid flow and heat transfer are introduced. A significant addition to this section is an introduction to the concepts of sustainability in Chapter 3 on Resource Sustainability, introducing students to the latest terminology used to describe the efficiencies of processes and operations. The next four chapters include applications of thermodynamics and heat transfer to preservation processes, refrigeration, freezing processes and evaporation processes used in concentration of liquid foods. Following the introduction of the principles of psychrometrics and mass transfer, the chapters present application of engineering concepts to membrane separation processes, dehydration processes, extrusion, packaging and supplemental processes, including filtration, centrifugation and mixing.

Long recognized as the bestselling textbook for teaching food engineering to food science students, this new edition transitions with today's students from traditional textbook learning to integrated presentation of the key concepts of food engineering. Using carefully selected examples, Singh and Heldman demonstrate the relationship of engineering to the chemistry, microbiology, nutrition and processing of foods in a uniquely practical blend.
