This is an updated version of the popular First Edition and includes additional chapters on food and waste management, raw materials, and refrigerated foods. Useful to university faculty and students as well as to food industry professionals, the book provides a comprehensive introduction to contemporary technologies and methods of sanitary food processing. Moving from principles to applications for problem-solving in the food plant, it presents the most recent data and concepts relative to cleaning and sanitizing food plants and process equipment. This volume traces the development of food processing knowledge, examines implications to human health, provides an understanding of the processing environment, and investigates measures to control health hazards, including the control of microbes. A special feature is its emphasis on food quality programs, with current information on HACCP and other quality programs such as ISO 9000.
