Food and Industrial Bioproducts and BioprocessingeBook - 2012
Food and Industrial Bioproducts and Bioprocessing describesthe engineering aspects of bioprocessing, including advanced foodprocessing techniques and bioproduct development. The main focus ofthe book is on food applications, while numerous industrialapplications are highlighted as well. The editors and authors, allexperts in various bioprocessing fields, cover the latestdevelopments in the industry and provide perspective on new andpotential products and processes. Challenges and opportunitiesfacing the bioproduct manufacturing industry are also discussed.Coverage is far-reaching and includes: current and future biomasssources and bioprocesses; oilseed processing and refining; starchand protein processing; non-thermal food processing; fermentation;extraction techniques; enzymatic conversions; nanotechnology;microencapsulation and emulsion techniques; bioproducts from fungiand algae; biopolymers; and biodegradable/edible packaging.
Researchers and product developers in food science, agriculture,engineering, bioprocessing and bioproduct development will findFood and Industrial Bioproducts and Bioprocessing aninvaluable resource.
