Microencapsulation in the Food Industry: A Practical Implementation Guide, Second Edition continues to focus on the development of new microencapsulation techniques for researchers and scientists in the field. This practical reference combines the knowledge of new and novel processing techniques, materials and selection, regulatory aspects and testing and evaluation of materials. It provides application specific uses of microencapsulation as it applies to the food and nutraceutical industries. This reference offers unique solutions to some very specific product needs in the field of encapsulation. This second edition highlights changes in the industry as a result of a field that has traversed from the micro scale level to nano-scaled encapsulation and includes two new chapters, one on regulatory, quality, process scale-up, packaging, and economics and the other on testing and quality control. Includes new characterization methodologies to understand chemical and physical properties for functionality of the final microencapsulated material Presents the latest research and developments in the area of nano-scale encapsulation and intelligent packaging Provides new testing tools to assess products containing microencapsulated actives

Consumers prefer food products that are tasty, healthy, and convenient. Encapsulation is an important way to meet these demands by delivering food ingredients at the right time and right place. For example, encapsulates may allow flavor retention, mask bad tasting or bad smelling components, stabilize food ingredients, and increase their bioavailability. Encapsulation may also be used to immobilize cells or enzymes in the production of food materials or products, such as fermentation or metabolite production. This book provides a detailed overview of the encapsulation technologies available for use in food products, food processing, and food production. The book aims to inform those who work in academia or R&D about both the delivery of food compounds via encapsulation and food processing using immobilized cells or enzymes. The structure of the book is according to the use of encapsulates for a specific application. Emphasis is placed on strategy, since encapsulation technologies may change. Most chapters include application possibilities of the encapsulation technologies in specific food products or processes. The first part of the book reviews general technologies, food-grade materials, and characterization methods for encapsulates. The second part discusses encapsulates of active ingredients (e.g., aroma, fish oil, minerals, vitamins, peptides, proteins, probiotics) for specific food applications. The last part describes immobilization technologies of cells and enzymes for use within food fermentation processes (e.g., beer, wine, dairy, meat), and food production (e.g., sugar conversion, production of organic acids or amino acids, hydrolysis of triglycerides). Edited by two leading experts in the field, Encapsulation Technologies for Food Active Ingredients and Food Processing will be a valuable reference source for those working in the academia or food industry. The editors work in both industry or academia, and they have brought together in this book contributions from both fields.

Today, nano- and microencapsulation are increasingly beingutilized in the pharmaceutical, textile, agricultural and foodindustries. Microencapsulation is a process in which tiny particlesor droplets of a food are surrounded by a coating to give smallcapsules. These capsules can be imagined as tiny uniform spheres,in which the particles at the core are protected from outsideelements by the protective coating. For example, vitamins can beencapsulated to protect them from the deterioration they wouldundergo if they were exposed to oxygen. This book highlights the principles, applications, toxicity andregulation of nano- and microencapsulated foods. Section I describes the theories and concepts of nano- andmicroencapsulation for foods adapted from pharmaceutical areas,rationales and new strategies of encapsulation, and protection andcontrolled release of food ingredients. Section II looks closely at the nano- and microencapsulation offood ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, phytochemical, lipid,probiotics and flavors. This section provides a variety ofreferences for functional food ingredients with varioustechnologies of nano particles and microencapsulation. This sectionwill be helpful to food processors and will deal with foodingredients for making newly developed functional foodproducts. Section III covers the application of encapsulated ingredientsto various foods, such as milk and dairy products, beverages,bakery and confectionery products, and related food packagingmaterials. Section IV touches on other related issues in nano- andmicroencapsulation, such as bioavailability, bioactivity, potentialtoxicity and regulation.

Food Processing Technology: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition, has been updated and extended to include the many developments that have taken place since the third edition was published. The new edition includes an overview of the component subjects in food science and technology, processing stages, important aspects of food industry management not otherwise considered (e.g. financial management, marketing, food laws and food industry regulation), value chains, the global food industry, and over-arching considerations (e.g. environmental issues and sustainability). In addition, there are new chapters on industrial cooking, heat removal, storage, and distribution, along with updates on all the remaining chapters. This updated edition consolidates the position of this foundational book as the best single-volume introduction to food manufacturing technologies available, remaining as the most adopted standard text for many food science and technology courses. Updated edition completely revised with new developments on all the processing stages and aspects of food industry management not otherwise considered (e.g. financial management, marketing, food laws, and food industry regulation), and more Introduces a range of processing techniques that are used in food manufacturing Explains the key principles of each process, including the equipment used and the effects of processing on micro-organisms that contaminate foods Describes post-processing operations, including packaging and distribution logistics Includes extra textbook elements, such as videos and calculations slides, in addition to summaries of key points in each chapter

Food technology has adopted new principles and practices that are rapidly changing the food sector. New foods are now available under more uniform standards and better quality control. Globalised food market offers opportunities for manufacturers to increase production and profit, and at the same time, consumers benefit from the choice of food products like never before. All this is possible only because of the innovations in the food sector. One of such innovations is encapsulation technology, which aims to preserve food quality, enhance the sensorial properties of food and increase the efficiency in food processing. This book discusses the uses of encapsulation technology in food practices and conventional processes and also highlights new directions in food processing. In the introductory chapters' review of encapsulation technologies, carrier materials and criteria for their selection, analytical methods for characterisation of encapsulated products and some aspects of product design and process optimisation. The most important achievements of encapsulation technology in the food sector are reviewed in the later chapters related to encapsulation of food ingredients, food biocatalysts and examples of usage of encapsulated active ingredients in the dairy and meat industry, beverage production, etc. In addition, the implementation of nanotechnology in the food sector is reviewed, emphasizing the most important materials and technologies for the production of nanoencapsulates. The book is a valuable source of information on encapsulation technology, for academia and industry, especially the food sector, with the aim of enhancing knowledge transfer.
