Reviews

"Food processing of fruits and vegetables (FPFV) is becoming challenging nowadays, and transforming from its nascent stage to maturity. Various technology inputs in this sector are also going through transformations. Traditional methods of processing are being mechanized, and thus innovative research is gaining importance. . . . Food processors, being a major part of the food industry, must possess processing skills and continuously upgrade their knowledge, which is essential in a cutthroat competitive market. . . . This is an excellent effort by the authors and editors involved in this book. It is a great pleasure for me to recommend this book for knowledge seekers. It is compiled in very righteous manner for students, academicians, research and industrial personnel."
