Reviews

"Overall, this high-quality book is a valuable reference resource for researchers as well as postgraduate students involved in food processing R&D. This book can also be used as a supplementary textbook for professional development courses in food technologies...the editor has done an excellent job of defining the content and seeking recognized experts to provide authoritative critical reviews of currently important topics. Each chapter contains a comprehensive list of recent literature that should be a valuable resource for those seeking further information on specific topics. The publisher deserves to be complemented on the production of a very high-quality book." - DRYING TECHNOLOGY 2006
