Description & Coverage
Description:

The increasing demand for food as well as changes in consumption habits have led to the greater availability and variety of food with a longer shelf life. However, these items, when not properly preserved, can lead to severe food-borne illnesses that can be fatal. Thus, countless studies are now geared towards the processing, distributing, and safe storage of foods.

Novel Technologies and Systems for Food Preservation is an essential reference source that discusses novel and emerging cooling and heating technologies, processes, and systems for food preservation, as well as improvements for control and monitoring systems that aim to foster energy efficiency, equipment safety, and performance. Additionally, it looks at concepts that may be useful for the development of new policies and legislation concerning food preservation. Featuring research on topics such as energy efficiency, food quality, and legislation policies, this book is ideally designed for government officials, policymakers, food and service industry professionals, food safety inspectors, researchers, academicians, and students.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • Food and Feed System
  • Food Monitoring
  • Food Quality
  • Legislation Policies
  • Non-Thermal Technologies
  • Operational System Design
  • System Efficiency
  • Thermal Technologies
