The Second Edition of Food Process Engineering by Dr. Dennis Heldman, my former student, and co-author Paul Singh, his former student, attests to the importance of the previous edition. In the Foreword to the First Edition, I noted the need for people in all facets of the food processing industry to consider those variables of design of particular importance in engineering for the food processing field. In addition to recognizing the many variables involved in the biological food product being handled from production to consumption, the engi neer must oftentimes adapt equations developed for non-biological materials. As more and more research is done, those equations are appropriately modified to be more accurate or new equations are developed specifically for designing to process foods. This Edition updates equations used. This book serves a very important need in acquainting engineers and technologists, particularly those with a math ematics and physics background, with the information necessary to provide a more efficient design to accomplish the objectives. Of prime importance, at present and in the future, is to design for efficient use of energy. Now, it is often economical to put considerably more money into first costs for an efficient design than previously, when energy costs were a much smaller proportion of the total cost of process engineering.

The preservation processes for foods have evolved over several centuries, but recent attention to non-thermal technologies suggests that a new dimension of change has been initiated. The new dimension to be emphasized is the emerging technologies for preservation of foods and the need for sound base of information to be developed as inputs for systematic process design. The focus of the work is on process design, and emphasizes the need for quantitative information as inputs to process design. The concepts presented build on the successful history of thermal processing of foods and use many examples from these types of preservation processes. Preservation of foods by refrigeration, freezing, concentration and dehydration are not addressed directly, but many of the concepts to be presented would apply. Significant attention is given to the fate of food quality attributes during the preservation process and the concept of optimizing process parameters to maximize the retention of food quality. Focuses on Kinetic Models for Food Components Reviews Transport Models in Food Systems Asseses Process Design Models

Food Process Engineering focuses on the design, operation and maintenance of chemical and other process manufacturing activities. The development of Agro Processing" will spur agricultural diversification. There are several benefits of promoting small scale agro-processing units rather large scale for the promotion of rural entrepreneurship. Appropriate post harvest management and value addition to agricultural products, in their production catchments, will lead to employment and income generation in the rural sector and minimize the losses of harvested biomass. Adoption of suitable technology plays a vital role in fixing the cost of the final product and consequently makes the venture, a profitable one. It is observed that imported agro-processing machines or their imitations are used for preparing food products. Actually, the working of these machines should be critically studied in context of the energy input and the quality of the finished product."

Applying the proven success of modern process engineering economics to the food industry, Food Plant Economics considers the design and economic analysis of food preservation, food manufacturing, and food ingredients plants with regard to a number of representative food processes. Economic analysis of food plants requires the evaluation of quantitative data from the design and operation of food processes and processing plants. An accompanying CD-ROM includes prepared Excel spreadsheets for calculating various food plants scenarios by applying appropriate data regarding the cost of equipment and equipment sizing, material and energy balances, and plant operating costs. Beginning with a thorough background in the economics of a food plant, the first three chapters summarize recent advances in food process and research technology, the structure of the food system in the US and EU, and the principles of modern design in food processes, processing equipment, and processing plants. The second three chapters discuss process economics in relation to the food industry by applying the concepts of capital cost, operating cost, and cash flow to estimations of plant profitability. Detailed chapters cover estimations of capital investment and operating costs including statistical data, empirical models, and useful rules of thumb. The remaining three chapters apply the techniques of the previous discussions to food preservation plants such as concentration, canning, and dehydration; manufacturing plants including wine, bread, and yogurt; as well as ingredients plants that produce sugars and oils. A useful appendix contains a glossary, tables, conversions, nomenclature, food properties, and heat transfer coefficients. A practical and comprehensive treatment of process economics, Food Plant Economics provides a complete introduction to the application of this efficient technique to the food industry.
