Book Description

Specifically developed for food engineers, this is an in-depth reference book that focuses on transport phenomena in food preservation. First it reviews the fundamental concepts regarding momentum, heat, and mass transfer. Then the book examines specific applications of these concepts into a variety of traditional and novel processes and products. Written by an international panel of researchers, Transport Phenomena in Food Processing provides a comprehensive, up-to-date assessment of the engineering principles key to improving food processing conditions and energy resources use.
