Название: Imaging Technologies and Data Processing for Food Engineers Автор: Nesli Sozer Издательство: Springer Год: 2016 Формат: PDF Размер: 36,7 Мб Язык: английский / English
Food products are complex in nature which makes their analysis difficult. Different scientific disciplines such as biochemistry, microbiology, and nutrition, together with engineering concepts are involved in their characterization. However, imaging of food materials and data analysis has gained more importance due to innovations in the food industry, as well as the emergence of food nanotechnology. Image analysis protocols and techniques can be used in food structure analysis and process monitoring. Therefore, food structure imaging is crucial for various sections of the food chain starting from the raw material to the end product.
This book provides information on imaging techniques such as electron microscopy, laser microscopy, x-ray tomography, raman and infrared imaging, together with data analysis protocols. It addresses the most recent advances in imaging technologies and data analysis of grains, liquid food systems (i.e. emulsions and gels), semi-solid and solid foams (i.e. bakery products, dough, expanded snacks), protein films, fruits and vegetable confectionery and nuts.
