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 processes and packages our foods. The process of getting food from "farm to fork," as the saying 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. This comprehensive reference is for engineers who design and build machinery and processing equipment, shipping containers, and packaging and storage equipment. It includes cutting-edge coverage of microwave vacuum application in grain processing, cacao processing, fruit and vegetable processing, ohmic heating of meat, facility design, closures for glass containers, double seaming, and much more. 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

Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian

Food processing technologies are an essential link in the food chain. These technologies are many and varied, changing in popularity with changing consumption patterns and product popularity. Newer process technologies are also being evolved to provide the added advantages. Conventional and Advanced Food Processing Technologies fuses the practical (application, machinery), theoretical (model, equation) and cutting-edge (recent trends), making it ideal for industrial, academic and reference use. It consists of two sections, one covering conventional or well-established existing processes and the other covering emerging or novel process technologies that are expected to be employed in the near future for the processing of foods in the commercial sector. All are examined in great detail, considering their current and future applications with added examples and the very latest data. Conventional and Advanced Food Processing Technologies is a comprehensive treatment of the current state of knowledge on food processing technology. In its extensive coverage, and the selection of reputed research scientists who have contributed to each topic, this book will be a definitive text in this field for students, food professionals and researchers.

Traditional thermal and freezing processing techniques have been effective in maintaining a safe high quality food supply. However, increasing energy costs and the desire to purchase environmentally responsible products have been a stimulus for the development of alternative technologies. Furthermore, some products can undergo quality loss at high temperatures or freezing, which can be avoided by many alternative processing methods. This second edition of Alternatives to Conventional Food Processing provides a review of the current major technologies that reduce energy cost and reduce environmental impact while maintaining food safety and quality. New technologies have been added and relevant legal issues have been updated. Each major technology available to the food industry is discussed by leading international experts who outline the main principles and applications of each. The degree to which they are already in commercial use and developments needed to extend their use further are addressed. This updated reference will be of interest to academic and industrial scientists and engineers across disciplines in the global food industry and in research, and to those needing information in greener or more sustainable technologies.

Ernährung wird heute vor allem unter ernährungstechnischen, medizinisch-gesundheitlichen oder weltanschaulichen Aspekten (z.B. Vegetarianismus, Veganismus usw.) diskutiert. Obwohl die Nahrungsmittelindustrie einen der wichtigsten Märkte darstellt, werden Fragen der Nahrungsmittelproduktion, der Landwirtschaft, des Nahrungsmittelhandels und der Biodiversität meist unter nationalen Vorzeichen diskutiert. Nicht nur auf Produzentenseite, sondern auch aus der Sicht der Konsumenten sind die Nahrungsmittelmärkte – obwohl immer noch national strukturiert – mehr und mehr zu globalen Märkten geworden, was sich etwa in der Entwicklung der Nahrungsmittelrohstoffpreise zeigt. Dazu kommt, dass große Nahrungsmittelkonzerne die Strategie verfolgen, die gesamten Wertschöpfungsketten im Landwirtschafts- und Nahrungsmittelbereich zu vereinheitlichen – wohlgemerkt unter ihrer Kontrolle. Das Buch thematisiert ökonomische Fragen zur Nahrungsmittelproduktion, zur Landwirtschaft, zum Handel mit Nahrungsmitteln und zur Biodiversität. Dabei werden Alternativen zur traditionellen Landwirtschaft, zur Massentierhaltung, zum Verlust an biologischer Vielfalt diskutiert – und aus wirtschaftlicher Sicht reflektiert. Besonderes Augenmerk liegt dabei auf Aspekten der Globalisierung.

Täglich werden in Europa tausende mikrobiologische Analysen durchgeführt, besonders zur Überwachung der Qualität von Lebensmitteln, Trinkwasser oder Badegewässern. Um Proben und Messergebnisse im gesamten europäischen Raum vergleichen und austauschen zu können, sind einheitliche Qualitätsstandards Voraussetzung. Diese wurden in verschiedenen EU-Projekten erarbeitet und unterstützt von der Europäischen Kommision in entsprechenden Richtlinien formuliert. Dabei wurde die EN 45001 zugrunde gelegt (nun ersetzt durch die Norm ISO/IEC 17025 "Allgemeine Anforderungen an die Kompetenz von Prüf- und Kalibrierlaboratorien"). Insbesonders gehören dazu: zuverlässige Referenzmaterialien, anerkannte Mess- und Auswertmethoden sowie validierte Abläufe von der Probennahme bis zur Dokumentation der Ergebnisse. Mit den nun auch in Deutsch vorliegenden Anleitungen kann jedes Untersuchungslabor ein Qualitätssicherungssystem implementieren.

Numerical Methods for Engineers retains the instructional techniques that have made the text so successful. Chapra and Canale's unique approach opens each part of the text with sections called "Motivation" "Mathematical Background" and "Orientation". Each part closes with an "Epilogue" containing "Trade-Offs" "Important Relationships and Formulas" and "Advanced Methods and Additional References". Much more than a summary the Epilogue deepens understanding of what has been learned and provides a peek into more advanced methods. Numerous new or revised problems are drawn from actual engineering practice. The expanded breadth of engineering disciplines covered is especially evident in these exercises which now cover such areas as biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Excellent new examples and case studies span all areas of engineering giving students a broad exposure to various fields in engineering.McGraw-Hill Education's Connect is also available as an optional add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need when they need it how they need it so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework quizzes and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.
