Extrusion cooking is a specialist area of food technology because of the complexity of the interactive effects which are inherent in the system. General predictive modelling is very difficult because ingredients are diverse and can vary considerably. Modelling tends to be product specifi- new product development tends to be by experimental designs and good fortune. The emphasis of this book is on the latest and potential applications of twin screw extrusion in food production, specifically co-rotating inter meshing screw extruders. Of course, in order to develop products and maximise the extruder potential in terms of energy, product quality and output, an overall understanding of the material flow mechanism, barrel fill length and rheology is essential. The book aims to give explanations and general guidance with examples of screw design, configuration and operat ing parameters for a variety of product categories. It is also intended to help production operators diagnose the symptoms of particular problems such as temperature control, quality variation, raw material inconsistency, etc. For the product development technologist there is more than one way to make a similar product. For example, equipment manufacturers recom mend difficult methods for producing flaked corn. In addition, their machines may differ from each other in terms of screw design, power/ volume ratio, screw tip/barrel clearance, etc. , making scale-up more prob lematic.

Almost two decades have passed since the first edition of Food Science was published in 1968. Previous editions have been widely circulated in the United States and abroad and have been accepted as a textbook in many colleges and universities. The book also has been translated into Japanese and Spanish. This response has encouraged me to adhere to prior objectives in preparing this fourth edition. The book continues to be aimed primarily at those with no previous instruction in food sci ence. Its purpose is to introduce and to survey the complex and fasci nating interrelationships between the properties of food materials and the changing methods of handling and manufacturing them into an al most unlimited number of useful products. The book especially ad dresses the needs for insight and appreciation of the broad scope of food science by students considering this field as a profession, as well as those by professionals in allied fields that service or interface with the food industry in ever-increasing ways. The literature of food science and food technology has rapidly ma tured from earlier articles to books to encyclopedias. Where technolog ical capabilities once were limited, rapid advances in many fields contin ually raise questions on the responsible management of technology and its environmental, social, and economic consequences. Changes in em phasis have been many. Affluent countries have become more con cerned with the health effects of nutrient excesses than with deficien cies, while hungry nations continue to suffer shortages.

With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, The nutrition handbook for food processors, fills that gap. It summarises the wealth of research in an area as important to the food industry as it is to health-conscious consumers. Part one provides the foundation for the rest of the book, looking at consumers and nutrition. After a discussion of surveys on what consumers eat, there are two reviews of research on the contribution of vitamins and minerals to health. Three further chapters discuss how nutrient intake is measured and at how nutrition information is presented to and interpreted by consumers. Part two looks at processing and nutritional quality. Two introductory chapters look at raw materials, discussing the nutritional enhancement of plant foods and meat respectively. The remaining chapters review the impact of processing, beginning with a general discussion of the stability of vitamins during processing. There are chapters on processes such as thermal processing, frying, freezing, packaging and irradiation. The book also covers newer processes such as microwave processing, ohmic heating and high pressure processing. Given the unprecedented attention on the impact of processing on the nutritional quality of food, The nutrition handbook for food processors is a standard work in its field. Summarises key findings on diet and nutrient intake, the impact of nutrients on health, and how food processing operations affect the nutritional quality of foods Examines consumers and nutrition, processing and nutritional quality, and nutritional enhancement of plant foods and meat, among other topics Reviews the wealth of recent research in an area as important to the food industry as it is to health-conscious consumers
