Presents Drying Breakthroughs for an Array of Materials Despite being one of the oldest, most energy-intensive unit operations, industrial drying is perhaps the least scrutinized technique at the microscopic level. Yet in the wake of today’s global energy crisis, drying research and development is on the rise. Following in the footsteps of the widely read first edition, Advanced Drying Technologies, Second Edition is the direct outcome of the recent phenomenal growth in drying literature and new drying hardware. This edition provides an evaluative overview of new and emerging drying technologies, while placing greater emphasis on making the drying process more energy efficient in the green age. Draws on the Authors’ 60+ Years of Combined Experience Fueled by the current energy crisis and growing consumer demand for improved quality products, this thoroughly updated resource addresses cutting-edge drying technologies for numerous materials such as high-valued, heat-sensitive pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and some foods. It also introduces innovative techniques, such as heat-pump drying of foods, which allow both industrial practice and research and development projects to save energy, reduce carbon footprints, and thus improve the bottom line. Four New Chapters: Spray-Freeze-Drying Fry Drying Refractance Window Drying Mechanical Thermal Expression Requiring no prior knowledge of chemical engineering, this single-source reference should assist researchers in turning the laboratory curiosities of today into the revolutionary novel drying technologies of tomorrow.

The second edition of a bestseller, Functional Food Ingredients and Nutraceuticals: Processing Technologies covers new and innovative technologies for the processing of functional foods and nutraceuticals that show potential for academic use and broad industrial applications. The book includes a number of "green" separation and stabilization technologies that have also been developed to address consumers’ concerns on quality and safety issues. It also details the substantial technological advances made in nano-microencapsulation that protect the bioactivity and enhance the solubility and bioavailability, and the preservation of health-promoting bioactive components in functional food products. Containing nine entirely new chapters, the second edition has been enhanced with coverage of recent developments in the different areas of processing technologies. The incorporation of these new emerging technologies strengthens the second edition without compromising the contextual integrity of the original publication. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Theoretical approaches in mass transfer modeling, solubility properties, and simulation in extraction process Innovative nanotechnologies in packaging process and nano-microencapsulation process and technology to protect bioactivity and enhance solubility and bioavailability of health-promoting bioactive components "Green" separation technologies updated with more information in industrial applications Thousands of research papers have been published on the health benefits of bioactive components from natural resources; many books on functional foods are related to chemical properties or medical functions. With only a few books capturing the related processing technologies, the first edition became a valuable tool to help transform results from the lab into industrial applications. Filled with current and sound scientific knowledge of engineering techniques and information on the quality of functional foods, the second edition of this groundbreaking resource is poised to do the same.

The first edition of Food Processing Technology was quickly adopted as the standard text by many food science and technology courses. While keeping with the practice of covering the wide range of food processing techniques, this new edition has been substantially expanded to take account of the advances in technology that have taken place since the publication of the first edition. The Second Edition includes new chapters on computer control of processing, novel 'minimal' technologies, and Ohmic heating, and an extended chapter on modified atmosphere packaging. It is a comprehensive - yet basic - text that offers an overview of most unit operations, while at the same time providing details of the processing equipment, operating conditions and the effects of processing on the biochemistry of foods. The book is divided into five parts, in which unit operations are grouped according to the nature of the heat transfer that takes place. Each chapter describes the formulae required for calculation of processing parameters, sample problems, and the effects on sensory characteristics and nutritional properties of selected foods. By combining food processing theory and calculations with descriptions of commercial practice and results of scientific studies, Food Processing Technology: Principles and Practice, Second Edition helps readers make attractive saleable products and extend the shelf-life of foods.
