Consumption of food products based on or containing fruit is increasing as consumers in the developed world seek a diet which they perceive to be healthy. At the same time, developing countries are increasing their volumes of value-added fruit processing in order to earn important foreign currency. This book provides a concise, thorough and authoritative coverage of the technology of fruit processing from a worldwide perspective. Detailed coverage of the use of fruit by-products, environmental issues, quality assurance and hygiene reflect the importance of these topics. New chapters cover biochemistry and implications for processing, packaging, and quality management systems and HACCP.
