Separation of Functional Molecules in Food by Membrane Technology deals with an issue that is becoming a new research trend in the field of food and bioproducts processing. The book fills in the gap of transfer knowledge between academia and industry by highlighting membrane techniques and applications for the separation of food components in bioresources, discussing separation mechanisms, balancing advantages and disadvantages, and providing relevant applications. Edited by Charis Galanakis, the book is divided in 13 chapters written by experts from the meat science, food technology and engineering industries.

Key Features

  • Covers the 13 most relevant topics of functional macro and micro molecules separation using membrane technology in the food industry
  • Brings the most recent advances in the field of membrane processing
  • Presents the sustainability principles of the food industry and the modern bioeconomy frame of our times


Food technologists, Food and pharmaceutical industries, food agricultural, chemical and environmental engineers, professionals working in the food industry, Food engineers who work in the food industry and are seeking to develop new products, new applications or improve their by-products management
