Book Description

Food Process Engineering: Safety Assurance and Complements pursues a logical sequence of coverage of industrial processing of food and raw material where safety and complementary issues are germane. Measures to guarantee food safety are addressed at start, and the most relevant intrinsic and extrinsic factors are reviewed, followed by description of unit operations that control microbial activity via the supply of heat supply or the removal of heat. Operations prior and posterior are presented, as is the case of handling, cleaning, disinfection and rinsing, and effluent treatment and packaging, complemented by a brief introduction to industrial utilities normally present in a food plant.

Key Features:

  • Overviews the technological issues encompassing properties of food products
  • Provides comprehensive mathematical simulation of food processes
  • Analyzes the engineering of foods at large, and safety and complementary operations in particular, with systematic derivation of all relevant formulae
  • Discusses equipment features required by the underlying processes
