Reference-text provides a comprehensive background for those involved in the development of packages and packaging systems for foods--i.e. for food scientists and technologists, packaging engineers, and students of food science and technology, as well as packaging. The volume consists of three major parts. The first part deals with the properties and forms of packaging materials. The second part reviews the various types of deteriorative reactions which foods undergo and discusses the extrinsic factors which control the rates of these deteriorative reactions. The final part begins with chapters on the aseptic packaging of foods and the packaging of microwavable foods, followed by chapters on the packaging requirements of various food groups. The final chapter addresses safety and legislative aspects of food packaging. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
