The process of getting food from "Farm to Fork" as the phrase goes, involves more than planting, harvesting, shipping, processing, packaging and distributing – though those are all key components. Effective and efficient food delivery systems are built around processes that maximize the effort while minimizing cost, time, and resource depletion. Handbook of Farm, Dairy and Food Machinery Engineering is the essential reference for engineers who need to understand those aspects of the food industry from farm machinery to food storage facilities to the machinery that processesand packages our foods.
This comprehensive reference is for engineers who design and build machinery and processing equipment, shipping containers and packaging and storage equipment. The content of Handbook of Farm, Dairy and Food Machinery Engineering includes approximately 40% new and updated information on microwave vacuum application in grain processing, Cacao processing, fruit and vegetable processing, ohmic heating of meat, expanded facility design coverage, closures for glass containers and double seaming among other topics.
* Provides cross-topic information for translational research and potential application
* Focuses on design and controls – written for engineers by engineers – always with practical applications in mind
* Includes design of machinery and facilities as well as theoretical basis for determining and predicting behavior of foods as they are handled and processed
