Fresh-Cut Fruits and Vegetables: Science, Technology, and Market
CRC Press, Feb 14, 2002 - Technology & Engineering - 480 pages
Fresh-cut Fruits and Vegetables: Science, Technology, and Market provides a comprehensive reference source for the emerging fresh-cut fruits and vegetables industry. It focuses on the unique biochemical, physiological, microbiological, and quality changes in fresh-cut processing and storage and on the distinct equipment design, packaging requirements, production economics, and marketing considerations for fresh-cut products. Based on the extensive research in this area during the past 10 years, this reference is the first to cover the complete spectrum of science, technology, and marketing issues related to this field, including production, processing, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, safety, engineering, sensory, biotechnology, and economics.
