These include changes in aseptic filling of nutritional beverages in plastic bottles; the popularity of value-added commodity products such as juice, concentrate, and puree; pouches and bag-in-box bulk packaging; and other novel package concepts possessing a range of consumer convenience and ergonomic features.
The newly titled Handbook of Aseptic Processing and Packaging, Second Edition explores the application of existing and new food processing methods and sensor technologies. It is an essential guide for those developing day-to-day procedures for a number of different aseptic processing and packaging applications.
