Description

The reduction in nutritional quality of food due to microbial contamination is a problem faced by much of the developing world. To address contamination-related hunger and malnutrition, it is crucial to enforce quantitative and qualitative protection of agri-food commodities after harvesting, as well as to create low cost, rational strategies to protect post-harvest losses and nutritional properties of food products in a sustainable manner. Research and Technological Advances in Food Science provides readers with a systematic and in-depth understanding of basic and advanced concepts in food science and post-harvest technology, including the most up-to-date information about different natural food source sources (of microbial, plant, and animal origin) and their health benefits. It also highlights current research and technological advances in food science related to health, such as personalized food and nutrition, seafood nutraceuticals, meat processing and product development, microbial enzymes for the tenderization of meat, feruloylated oligosaccharides for human health, and the role of microbial antagonistic in post-harvest management of fruit. In addition, the book explores the role of modern tools and techniques such as instrumentation, nanotechnology, biotechnology, ultrasound in food processing and food-omics in food science. Research and Technological Advances in Food Science is an excellent resource for researchers, food scientists, biochemists, pharmacologists, nutritionists, policymakers, and students working in the food science domain.
