Peanuts: Processing Technology and Product Development provides an overall review of the latest peanut and peanut-related research development worldwide, including not only peanut production and processing progress, but also peanut-related product (oil, protein) production technologies, and by-products utilization technologies (peptides, polyphenol, polysaccharide, and dietary fiber). The book focuses on technology practicability, and all the technologies introduced, have been partly or fully applied. It is a valuable book and important reference for technicians and R and D persons in the peanut processing industry, and can also be used as a reference book for professional teaching and scientific research in the field of food science and engineering.

Key Features

  • Provides the latest worldwide research in the field of peanut production and processing, incorporating the author’s research findings on new product development
  • Presents technologies that have already been partly or fully applied in the peanut industry, providing effective guidance for the processing of peanuts and their by-products
  • Includes topics on peanut production, peanut research progress, main peanut components, raw material quality evaluation, processing and utilization of peanut products (oil, protein), and by-products (peptide, polyphenol, polysaccharide, dietary fiber)


Students majoring in food science and engineering; researchers and scientists in grain and oil processing; technicians in peanut process industries.
