Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, the chapters are clear and well written, and the whole book is excellently put together. It is certainly wide-reaching in its coverage and should give anyone who reads it a very good appreciation of the many factors that affect the production of food in an industrial society." (Chemistry World, March 2010)

"The book finds the correct balance between academic knowledge and its application to the wider food industry, for example the consideration of cleaning and sanitizing within Food engineering. In addition to accuracy and detail, the chapters are all very readable. ... Highly recommended." (Society for General Microbiology, February 2010)

"This text and reference covers the core components of food science and technology degree programs. It contains contributions from 30 industry experts, teachers, and researchers from around the world, and includes color and b&w photos, images, and illustrations." (Book News, December 2009)
