This volume describes in a concise and integrated manner how physical, biochemical, microbiological and other factors play a role in food preservation. It provides detailed discussions of conditions that cause, accelerate, control or inhibit undesirable changes in food. The effects of such factors as light, temperature, moisture, oxygen, radiation, and microbes on the keeping quality of food are systematically reviewed. The book deals with the processing of fruit, vegetables, meat and eggs. Numerous techniques for preservation as well as machinery and equipment employed in food preservation are discussed. This work should be of interest to a broad audience of people working in food industry, food science departments in academia, governmental quality control agencies and the like.
