Description

Advances in Biotechnology for Food Industry, Volume Fourteen in the Handbook of Food Bioengineering series provides recent insight into how biotechnology impacts the global food industry and describes how food needs are diverse, requiring the development of innovative biotechnological processes to ensure efficient food production worldwide. Many approaches were developed over the last 10 years to allow faster, easier production of widely used foods, food components and therapeutic food ingredients. This volume shows how biotechnological processes increase production and quality of food products, including the development of anti-biofilm materials to decrease microbial colonization in bioreactors and food processing facilities.

Key Features

  • Presents basic to advanced technological applications in food biotechnology
  • Includes various scientific techniques used to produce specific desired traits in plants, animals and microorganisms
  • Provides scientific advances in food processing and their impact on the environment, human health and food safety
  • Discusses the development of controlled co-cultivations for reproducible results in fermentation processes in food biotechnology

Readership
