Easy Statistics for Food Science with R presents the application of statistical techniques to assist students and researchers who work in food science and food engineering in choosing the appropriate statistical technique. The book focuses on the use of univariate and multivariate statistical methods in the field of food science. The techniques are presented in a simplified form without relying on complex mathematical proofs.
This book was written to help researchers from different fields to analyze their data and make valid decisions. The development of modern statistical packages makes the analysis of data easier than before. The book focuses on the application of statistics and correct methods for the analysis and interpretation of data. R statistical software is used throughout the book to analyze the data.
- Contains numerous step-by-step tutorials help the reader to learn quickly
- Covers the theory and application of the statistical techniques
- Shows how to analyze data using R software
- Provides R scripts for all examples and figures

Dr. Alqaraghuli received his BSc and MSc in statistics from Al-Mustansirya University in 1987 and 1995 respectively. He worked at a specialized institute for engineering industries in Iraq from 1988 to 1992,and during this time, he conducted training in statistical methods. He worked also at the University level in Iraq, Jordan and then Libya after receiving his MSc in statistics. In 2014, Dr. Alqaraghuli received his Ph.D from the school of mathematical sciences at the University of Science, Malaysia. He has taught a number of statistical courses, including elementary statistics, mathematical statistics, biostatistics and the design and analysis of experiments as well as courses related to different statistical software, including SPSS and R. Dr. Alqaraghuli’s research is focused on the application of experimental design, modelling, and multivariate. He is currently self-employed and conducts workshops for non-statisticians while also conducting research.
