  • Application of Alternative Food-Preservation Technologies to Enhance Food Safety and Stabilityby Antonio Bevilacqua; Maria Rosaria Corbo; Milena Sinigaglia

    Bentham Science Publishers 2010; US$ 89.00

    The book covers the applications of some alternative approaches for prolonging food shelf life. The book describes the role of food safety objectives, natural compounds (such as oils and microbial enzymes), pressure and atmospheric techniques and alternative approaches (microwave, irradiation and mathematical microbial modeling) in food preservation.... more...

  • Color in Foodby José Luis Caivano; María del Pilar Buera

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 189.95

    Controlling, measuring, and "designing" the color of food are critical concerns in the food industry, as the appeal of food is chiefly determined visually, with color the most salient visual aspect. In 2010 at the International Color Association Interim Meeting held in Mar del Plata, Argentina, a multidisciplinary panel of food experts gathered to... more...

  • Shelf Life Assessment of Foodby Maria Cristina Nicoli

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 179.95

    Determining accurate shelf life data for foods is essential for assuring food quality and protecting consumers from the effects of degradation. With a proper balance of theory and practical examples, Shelf Life Assessment of Food presents the essential criteria and current methodologies for obtaining accurate and reliable shelf life dating. Defining... more...

  • Operations in Food Refrigerationby Rodolfo H. Mascheroni

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 179.95

    The final quality of a food product is impacted heavily by preservation technologies, such as chilling, freezing, and freeze-drying, as well as the numerous pretreatments that are routinely applied to foods. Adequate design and implementation of each of these treatments are critical to ensuring the integrity of the final food product, the productivity... more...

  • Rheology of Fluid and Semisolid Foodsby M. A. Andy Rao

    Springer 2010; US$ 219.00

    The second edition of this fascinating work examines the concepts needed to characterize rheological behavior of fluid and semisolid foods. It also looks at how to use various ingredients to develop desirable flow properties in fluid foods as well as structure in gelled systems. It covers the crucially important application of rheology to sensory assessment... more...

  • Pulsed Electric Fields Technology for the Food Industryby Javier Raso-Pueyo; Volker Heinz

    Springer 2010; US$ 199.00

    Many novel technologies have been proposed in the attempt to improve existing food processing methods. Among emerging nonthermal technologies, high intensity pulsed electric fields (PEF) is appealing due to its short treatment times and reduced heating effects. This book presents information accumulated on PEF during the last 15 years by experienced... more...

  • Cooking Innovationsby Amos Nussinovitch; Madoka Hirashima

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 59.95

    While hydrocolloids have been used for centuries, it took molecular gastronomy to bring them to the forefront of modern cuisine. They are among the most commonly used ingredients in the food industry, functioning as thickeners, gelling agents, texturizers, stabilizers, and emulsifiers. They also have applications in the areas of edible coatings and... more...

  • Packaging for Food Preservationby Matteo Alessandro Del Nobile; Amalia Conte

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The book will be focused on the three most important aspects of food packaging: Modeling, Materials and Packaging Strategies. The modeling section will provide a complete overview of mass transport phenomena in polymers intended for food packaging applications. The materials section will cover the most interesting problem-solving solutions in the field... more...

  • Instant Controlled Pressure Drop (D.I.C.) in Food Processingby Tamara Allaf; Karim Allaf

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The use of Instant Controlled Pressure Drop (D.I.C.) in food processing operations is relatively new when compared with other conventional or innovative technologies. In addition to existing applications such as drying, texturing and decontamination, D.I.C. technology has been shown to be highly appropriate for an ever-growing number of uses and with... more...

  • Animal Feed Contaminationby J Fink-Gremmels

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 315.00

    The production of animal feed increasingly relies on the global acquisition of feed material, increasing the risk of chemical and microbiological contaminants being transferred into food-producing animals. Animal feed contamination provides a comprehensive overview of recent research into animal feed contaminants and their negative effects on both... more...
