FUNDAMENTALS OF FOOD PROCESS ENGINEERING is intended as a text book for the academician, researchers and students of UG- and PG- levels in food science and technology, chemical engineering, food biotechnology, and process and food engineering, who are interested in the various aspects of processing, packaging, storage, preservation, safety and quality control and measurement, and design of food and chemical plants and equipments. As the name indicates, the book describes the fundamental principles involved in process and food engineering and their major applications in the field of food and bioprocess engineering. Second objective behind preparing the book is to meet syllabus of the candidates or students in process and food engineering those are preparing themselves for ARS, NET, SRF, JRF, IFS, and GATE Examinations. The book has been prepared taking account the syllabus of the Agricultural Structure and Process Engineering for the UGand PG- students in the course Agricultural Engineering.
The book deals with various physical, thermal, frictional, textural, and viscoelastic properties of food materials; various mechanical and thermal food processing operations; basis electrical engineering, instrumentation and process control systems in food processing operation; and food plant and equipment design. Problems of last couple of years of GATE and ARS are included in each chapter in the book in order to make easy of understanding the concepts of various principles and to make students/ candidates with the question pattern of various competitive examination held in Agricultural Engineering subject.
