Agro-Product Processing Technology : Principles and Practice, Hardback Book

Agro-Product Processing Technology : Principles and Practice Hardback


  • Information


Global food security is a challenging issue. Meeting the food and nutritional requirements of the world has become an issue for national policymakers and is of public concern.

There is a need to enhance agricultural production, as well as, to reduce postharvest loss, improve the quality of processed products, and add value to products to make more quality food available.

Agro-product processing technology plays a major role to reduce post-harvest losses, improve the quality of processed products, and add value to the products.

It also generates employment and ultimately contributes to food security. Features:Covers a wide spectrum of agro-product processing technologyExplains the principles and practices of agro-product processing technology with many worked examples to quickly teach the basic principles through examplesContains examples from different operations on current problems to show the wide applications of the principles of agro-product technologyIncludes process control and emerging technologies in agro-product processing such as energy and exergy analysis, neural network modeling, and CFD modelingThis book deals with physical and thermal properties, cleaning and sorting, drying and storage, parboiling and milling, by-product utilization, heating and cooling, refrigerated cooling, and cold storage.

The most unique feature of this book is the machine vision for grading fruits, process control and materials handling, and emerging technologies such as neural network, finite element, CFD, and genetic algorithm.
