Summary

Development of Packaging and Products for Use in Microwave Ovens provides a focused and comprehensive review for developers in the food and packaging industries. The first section discusses the principles of microwave heating and ovens. The text emphasizes the effect of food dielectric properties and geometry on heating uniformity, flavor optimization, and colors of microwave foods. The second part discusses microwave packaging materials and design with chapters that cover rigid packaging, susceptors, and shielding. Also discussed are product development, oven safety, and computer modeling of microwave products.
