Sustainability is an essential part of our modern food production system. Carrying out food research that considers environmental, social, and economic factors, is a major objective for food producers and researchers. Strategic development and use of technology can greatly assist in the progression toward a more sustainable food system. Sustainable Production Technology in Food explores important scientific and practical aspects related to sustainable technologies used in all aspects of the food system. This book is organized into 13 chapters, that cover the main concepts related to sustainability and technology. Coverage includes current technology in the industry, technological developments to improve sustainability of food production (biopreservation, pulsed electric fields, high pressure processing, ultrasound, cold plasma, and nanotechnology), regulatory aspects, and future perspectives. Presents a comprehensive discussion around the technological advances of sustainable food production Addresses the current relationship between food production and sustainability Focuses on how technology can impact the sustainability of the food production system

Sustainable Food Processing Food processors face numerous challenges from ever-changing economic, social and environmental conditions. With global inequalities increasing, ingredient costs climbing, and global climate change becoming a major political issue, food producers must now address environmental concerns, social responsibility and economic viability when shaping their food processing techniques for the future. Food production, preservation and distribution contribute to greenhouse gas emissions from the agri-food sector, therefore food producers require detailed, industrially relevant information that addresses these challenges. The food industry, as one of the world’s largest users of energy, must embrace new ways of meeting the needs of the present without compromising future viability. It is important that the industry does not merely focus on simple indicators of sustainability that are relatively easy to calculate and hold appeal for governments and the public, but which do not properly address the many dimensions of sustainability. This book provides a comprehensive overview of both economic sustainability and the environmental concerns that relate to food processing. It is divided into four sections. Part one deals with principles and assessment of sustainability in the context of food processing; Part two summarises sustainability in various food processing applications within the food industry; Part three considers sustainability in food manufacturing operations that are vital in food production systems; and Part four addresses sustainable food distribution and consumption. As the most comprehensive reference book for industry to date, this book will provide engineers, educators, researchers, policy makers and scientists working in the food industry with a valuable resource for their work.

This book will review the current status of the agriculture and agri-food sector in regard to green processing and provide strategies that can be used by the sector to enhance the use of environmentally-friendly technologies for production, processing. The book will look at the full spectrum from farm to fork beginning with chapters on life cycle analysis and environmental impact assessment of different agri-food sectors. This will be followed by reviews of current and novel on-farm practices that are more environmentally-friendly, technologies for food processing that reduce chemical and energy use and emissions as well as novel analytical techniques for R&D and QA which reduce solvent, chemical and energy consumption. Technologies for waste treatment, "reducing, reusing, recycling", and better water and energy stewardship will be reviewed. In addition, the last section of the book will attempt to look at technologies and processes that reduce the generation of process-induced toxins (e.g., trans fats, acrylamide, D-amino acids) and will address consumer perceptions about current and emerging technologies available to tackle these processing and environmental issues.

Sustainability is becoming a major item for the food industry around the world, as resources become more restricted and demand grows. Food processing ensures that the resources required producing raw food materials and ingredients for food manufacturing are used most efficiently. Responding to the goals of sustainability requires the maximum utilization of all raw materials produced and integration of activities throughout all the production-to-consumption stages. To maximize the conversion of raw materials into consumer products, food engineering and food processing challenges should be met. Sustainable Food Processing and Engineering Challenges covers the most trend topics and challenges of sustainable food processing and food engineering, giving emphasis in engineering packaging for a sustainable food chain, food processing technologies, Industry 4.0 applied to food, food digestion engineering, sustainable alternative food processing technologies, physico-chemical aspects of food, cold plasma technology, refrigeration climate control, non-thermal pasteurisation and sterilization, nanotechnology and alternative processes requiring less resources, sustainable innovation in food product design etc. Edited by a multiple team of experts, the book is aimed at food engineers who are seeking to improve efficiency of production systems and also researchers, specialists, chemical engineers and professionals working in food processing. Covers the most trend topics and challenges of sustainable food processing and food engineering Brings developments in methods to reduce the carbon footprint of the food system Explores emerging topics such as Industry 4.0 applied to food and Food digestion engineering

The urgent need for sustainability within the food producing industries and agriculture has turned the interest of research to investigate new non-thermal technologies, nanotechnologies and other practices in postharvest treatment of crops and fruits. Subsequently, there is a need for a new guide covering the latest developments in this particular direction. Food Losses, Sustainable Postharvest and Food Technology provides solutions to postharvest treatment technologies. It explores modern non-thermal technologies, focusing on postharvest losses and quality of fresh-cut products. In addition, it discusses the implications for postharvest technology research, policies and practices. It also focuses on the most recent advances in the field, while it explores the potentiality and sustainability of already commercialized processes and products. Aimed at professionals working in the food industry and agriculture, it could also be utilized as a handbook for anyone dealing with sustainability issues of food production in spite of postharvest treatment. Thoroughly explores modern non-thermal technologies in postharvest treatment Discusses the implications for postharvest technology research, policies and practices Analyzes the potentiality and sustainability of already commercialized processes and products
