About the Book



Providing detailed information on key areas of post-harvest technologies, this book is written with small-scale processors and entrepreneurs in food processing in mind.



Book Synopsis



Providing detailed information on key areas of post-harvest technologies, this book is written with small-scale processors and entrepreneurs in food processing, who have no formal training in Food Science or Food Engineering, in mind. Uniquely, it will review the hands-on aspects of food processing from a largely non-academic viewpoint. It is written in non-technical language and covers everything from the basic science of why food is processed to a description of the main methods used. Coverage includes all current technologies that are used at the small-scale such as why food is processed, the historical development of food processing, background skills, heating and cooling in food processing, thermal processing basics and specialised calculations, drying food materials, statistical manufacturing control and sugar solution calculations in beverage making

The cartnear audience for this book is vastly under-served with appropriate information and the abundant use of photographs, showing the various concepts described in the text, makes this book appealing to those required to understand their food process operations.

About the Author



Dr. Don Mercer, P.Eng. is an Associate Professor with the Department of Food Science, University of Guelph and is a Fellow of the International Academy of Food Science and Technology. His research interests are in food process engineering, with specific emphasis on dehydration and drying. For the past seventeen years, he has been working with the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) Distance Education Task Force in developing and delivering training modules for food industry workers in Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, he has participated in the "Education for Employment Program" sponsored by the Canadian Government to develop food-based training programs in Tanzania, Dominica, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. From 2014 to 2018, Don worked with the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) and IUFoST to present food processing workshops for entrepreneurs and small-scale farmers in the Caribbean, South America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. He is currently working on additional projects in the Caribbean to promote the availability of instructional material for small-scale processors and entrepreneurs. Prior to joining the University of Guelph, Don spent ten years with the Research Branch of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and fourteen years as Senior Research Engineer with Kraft-General Foods Canada.
