The Contemporary Food Engineering Series will consist of edited books addressing engineering processes related to food production. Classical unit operations in engineering applied to food manufacturing will be covered as well as such topics including the transport and storage of liquid and solid foods; heating, chilling and freezing of foods; mass transfer in foods; dehydration, thermal processing, non-thermal processing, extrusion, liquid food concentration, membrane processes and applications of membranes in food processing; packaging, cleaning, and sanitation. The books will be aimed at professional food scientists, academicians researching food engineering problems, and graduate level students.
