Food Preservation And Biodeterioration
Biodeterioration is the breakdown of food by agents of microbiological origin, either directly or indirectly from products of their metabolism
Both microbiological and chemical pathways are analysed
It discusses how the agents of food biodeterioration operate and how the commercial methods available to counteract these agents are applied to produce safe and wholesome foods
Preservation on the other hand is the process by which food materials are maintained in their original condition or as close to this as possible
This second edition of Food Preservation and Biodeterioration is fully updated and reorganised throughout
This topic being important to all producers of food, the readership spans food scientists across industry and academia, particularly those involved with safety and quality.
With this book, readers will discover traditional methods as well as major advances in preservation technology
