Designed for food engineers and workers in food science laboratories, this lab manual provides a set of experiments that can be conducted in most food science laboratories or pilot plants. Covering important food engineering principles, each experiment contains a summary of the purpose of the lab, background information on significant theoretical concepts, and mathematical equations to be used for each given experiment. Question and problem sets are also included to expedite understanding.
