About this book

133 Illustrations and 252 tables make it fast and easy for you to find the information you need.This is the first definitive source of data on physical, thermal, and thermodynamic properties of foods. You can solve your problems in food processing, preservation, process design and control, product development, stability determination, and sensory analysis. With this important new book you can access both theoretical and practical data on properties measurement, discover how to apply the data to your specific problems, and make more accurate predictions.
