This is the second publication stemming from the International Congress on Engineering in Food, the first being Food Engineering Interfaces, based on the last ICEF10. The theme of ICEF 11, held in Athens, Greece in May 2011, is “Food Process Engineering in a Changing World.” The conference explored the ways food engineering contributes to the solutions of vital problems in a world of increasing population and complexity that is under the severe constraints of limited resources of raw materials, energy, and environment. The book, comprised of 32 chapters, features an interdisciplinary focus, including food materials science, engineering properties of foods, advances in food process technology, novel food processes, functional foods, food waste engineering, food process design and economics, modeling food safety and quality, and innovation management.

Advances in Food Rheology and Its Applications presents the latest advances in the measurement and application of food rheology, one of the most important tools for food companies when characterizing ingredients and final products, and a predictor of product performance and consumer acceptance. Split into two main focuses, the book gives in-depth analysis of the general advances in the field, with coverage of the relationship between food microstructure and rheology, the use of tribology in the study of oral processing, the use of large amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) measurement and Fourier-transform rheology in food, and the influence of fibers and particle size distribution on food rheology, as well as many other advances. Written by a leading international team of authors, the book provides an in-depth and state-of-the-art coverage of this essential topic on the consumer acceptance of food. Brings together top researchers in the field of rheology, providing in-depth and state-of-the-art coverage on an area of study essential for managing the quality of foods and gaining consumer acceptance Presents in-depth coverage of advances in rheology, many of which have never been featured before, including tribology, large amplitude oscillatory shear measurement, and the influence of fibers and particle size distribution on food rheology Contains information that is highly relevant to the industrialist who wants to improve the rheological properties of the foods with which they are working

Ultrasound is an emerging technology that has been widely explored in food science and technology since the late 1990s. The book is divided into three main areas.Chapters 1 to 5 focus on the basic principles of ultrasound and how the technology works on microbial cells, enzymes, and the chemistry behind the process. Chapters 6 to 15 cover the application of ultrasound in specific food products and processes, discussing changes on food quality and presenting some innovations in food ingredients and enhancement of unit operations. Finally, Chapters 16 to 20 present some topics about manufacture of ultrasound equipment and simulation of the process, the use of the technology to treat food industry wastewater, and an industry perspective. The laws and regulations concerning emerging technologies, such as ultrasound, are also discussed, including the new Food Safety Modernization Act. Provides a clear and comprehensive panorama of ultrasound technology Contains updated research behind this technology Brings the current tested product and future uses Explores potential future use within the food industry

As the demand for safe, nutritious, convenient foods continues to rise, and the capabilities of molecular biology and nutritional biochemistry continue to expand, the need for up-to-date engineering information becomes ever more critical. The application of innovative engineering concepts enables scientific breakthroughs to be utilized in the manufacture of the highest quality food products at the lowest possible cost. Handbook of Food Engineering, Second Edition assembles the most recent information available for the efficient design and development of processes used in the manufacturing of food products, along with traditional background and fundamental information. In keeping with the comprehensive and informative style of the original, this second edition focuses on the thermophysical properties of food and the rate constants of change in food components during processing. It highlights the use of these properties and constants in process design. Beginning with a review of the properties of food and food ingredients and the traditional unit operations associated with food manufacture, the book moves on to discuss specific points associated with freezing, concentration, dehydration, thermal processing, and extrusion. Key chapters cover basic concepts of the transport and storage of liquids and solids, as well as important topics in packaging, cleaning, and sanitation. New information on membrane processes addresses not only liquid concentration, but also other applications for membranes in food processing. The chapters on mass transfer in foods and food packaging have been extensively revised. Delineating the concepts of engineering as they are applied to the latest advancements in food manufacture, Handbook of Food Engineering, Second Edition contributes to the evolution of food engineering as an interface between engineering and other food sciences.
