Media reviews

A comprehensive and coherent treatise on most relevant physical properties of foods, Sahin and Sumnu's book presents the reader with an interesting and challenging lecture. While specifically targeting food engineers, scientists and technologists, the book can be an excellent addition to any science and engineering curricula or library. The outlay and content of each chapter make them extremely easy to read, presenting both general information and in-depth knowledge for the more technical audience. ... Throughout the book, the importance of each food property type is highlighted and explained, with detailed mathematical reasoning where appropriate. The different direct and indirect methods for determining the respective food property, coupled with several relevant examples and many practice problems at the end of each chapter, are some of the characteristics of the book that make it particularly appealing for its use as a reference or textbook in a dedicated or general FoodScience, Food Engineering or Food Technology course. Physical Properties of Foods is an excellent reference for food engineers and other food scientists, and I highly recommend it for use as a textbook or as a reference in Food Science and Engineering curricula. - Dorin Boldor, Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department, Louisiana State University & LSU AgCenter Journal of Food Processing and Preservation Volume 31 Issue 1 February 2007
