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 third volume in the Handbook of Food Science and Technology Set explains the processing of raw materials into traditional food (bread, wine, cheese, etc.). The agri-food industry has evolved in order to meet new market expectations of its products; with the use of separation and assembly technologies, food technologists and engineers now increasingly understand and control the preparation of a large diversity of ingredients using additional properties to move from the raw materials into new food products. Taking into account the fundamental basis and technological specificities of the main food sectors, throughout the three parts of this book, the authors investigate the biological and biochemical conversions and physicochemical treatment of food from animal sources, plant sources and food ingredients.

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).

As the demand for safe, nutritious, convenient foods continues to rise, and the capabilities of molecular biology and nutritional biochemistry continue to expand, the need for up-to-date engineering information becomes ever more critical. The application of innovative engineering concepts enables scientific breakthroughs to be utilized in the manufacture of the highest quality food products at the lowest possible cost. Handbook of Food Engineering, Second Edition assembles the most recent information available for the efficient design and development of processes used in the manufacturing of food products, along with traditional background and fundamental information. In keeping with the comprehensive and informative style of the original, this second edition focuses on the thermophysical properties of food and the rate constants of change in food components during processing. It highlights the use of these properties and constants in process design. Beginning with a review of the properties of food and food ingredients and the traditional unit operations associated with food manufacture, the book moves on to discuss specific points associated with freezing, concentration, dehydration, thermal processing, and extrusion. Key chapters cover basic concepts of the transport and storage of liquids and solids, as well as important topics in packaging, cleaning, and sanitation. New information on membrane processes addresses not only liquid concentration, but also other applications for membranes in food processing. The chapters on mass transfer in foods and food packaging have been extensively revised. Delineating the concepts of engineering as they are applied to the latest advancements in food manufacture, Handbook of Food Engineering, Second Edition contributes to the evolution of food engineering as an interface between engineering and other food sciences.
