This book is a source of basic and advanced knowledge in food science for students or professionals in the food science sector, but it is also accessible for people interested in the different aspects concerning raw material stabilisation and transformation in food products. It is an updated and translated version of the book "Science des aliments" published in 2006 by Lavoisier. “Science des aliments” is a general and introductory food science and technology handbook, based on the authors’ Masters and PhD courses and research experiences. The book is concise, pedagogical and informative and contains numerous illustrations (approximately 500 original figures and tables). In three volumes), it summarizes the main knowledge required for working in food industries as scientists, technical managers or qualified operators. It will also be helpful for the formation of students in food science and biotechnologies (bachelor’s and master’s degree).

Food Process Engineering focuses on the design, operation and maintenance of chemical and other process manufacturing activities. The development of Agro Processing" will spur agricultural diversification. There are several benefits of promoting small scale agro-processing units rather large scale for the promotion of rural entrepreneurship. Appropriate post harvest management and value addition to agricultural products, in their production catchments, will lead to employment and income generation in the rural sector and minimize the losses of harvested biomass. Adoption of suitable technology plays a vital role in fixing the cost of the final product and consequently makes the venture, a profitable one. It is observed that imported agro-processing machines or their imitations are used for preparing food products. Actually, the working of these machines should be critically studied in context of the energy input and the quality of the finished product."

This book serves as a general introduction to food science and technology, based on the academic courses presented by the authors as well as their personal research experiences. The authors' main focus is on the biological and physical-chemical stabilization of food, and the quality assessment control methods and normative aspects of the subsequent processes. Presented across three parts, the authors offer a detailed account of the scientific basis and technological knowledge needed to understand agro-food transformation. From biological analyses and process engineering, through to the development of food products and biochemical and microbiological changes, the different parts cover all aspects of the control of food quality.

This is a new book on food process engineering which treats the principles of processing in a scientifically rigorous yet concise manner, and which can be used as a lead in to more specialized texts for higher study. It is equally relevant to those in the food industry who desire a greater understanding of the principles of the food processes with which they work. This text is written from a quantitative and mathematical perspective and is not simply a descriptive treatment of food processing. The aim is to give readers the confidence to use mathematical and quantitative analyses of food processes and most importantly there are a large number of worked examples and problems with solutions. The mathematics necessary to read this book is limited to elementary differential and integral calculus and the simplest kind of differential equation.

Introduction to Food Engineering deals with the engineering concepts in food processing employing a unit operations approach. The book focuses on mass and energy balances, fluid flow, energy utilization, refrigeration, heat transfer, food freezing, evaporation, dehydration, and psychometrics. It is in line with primary topics recommended by the Institute of Food Technologists of the U.S.A. The text reviews some concepts related to food science such as the equation of state and perfect gas law, laws of thermodynamics, and conservation of mass. The book also discusses the transport of liquid foods and the three types of utilities used in food processing: 1) steam generation and utilization; 2) natural gas utilization; and 3) electric power utilization. The text explains how to determine the properties of food and the different approaches that can be used to obtain the food's thermal properties prior to using the proper heat-exchange equipment. Food preservation also involves freezing (direct or indirect contact systems), evaporation, dehydration, and psychometrics (involving thermodynamic properties of gas-vapor mixtures). The book is suitable for nutritionists, food technologists, advanced under-graduate and beginning graduate students in food science and technology, and professionals whose works are in the food processing, research, and preservation industry.

FUNDAMENTALS OF FOOD PROCESS ENGINEERING is intended as a text book for the academician, researchers and students of UG- and PG- levels in food science and technology, chemical engineering, food biotechnology, and process and food engineering, who are interested in the various aspects of processing, packaging, storage, preservation, safety and quality control and measurement, and design of food and chemical plants and equipments. As the name indicates, the book describes the fundamental principles involved in process and food engineering and their major applications in the field of food and bioprocess engineering. Second objective behind preparing the book is to meet syllabus of the candidates or students in process and food engineering those are preparing themselves for ARS, NET, SRF, JRF, IFS, and GATE Examinations. The book has been prepared taking account the syllabus of the Agricultural Structure and Process Engineering for the UGand PG- students in the course Agricultural Engineering. The book deals with various physical, thermal, frictional, textural, and viscoelastic properties of food materials; various mechanical and thermal food processing operations; basis electrical engineering, instrumentation and process control systems in food processing operation; and food plant and equipment design. Problems of last couple of years of GATE and ARS are included in each chapter in the book in order to make easy of understanding the concepts of various principles and to make students/ candidates with the question pattern of various competitive examination held in Agricultural Engineering subject.
