Tropical and subtropical countries have become well aware of the fact, that they must make better use of their fruits. In spite of the favourable climatic conditions for the production of varieties of delicious fruits in such countries, continuously high tempemtures shorten the shelf-life of most fruits and fruit products. A tropical climate provides ideal conditions for mpid growth of spoilage microorganisms and for chemical reactions. Most of such reactions in fruits and fruit products are deteriomtive in nature causing high respiration rates, texture softening and spoilage of fruit. This causes loss of colour, flavour and vitamins, and browning of fruit products. Even though a fruit product has been rendered microbiolo­ gically stable, these chemical reactions continue to occur in storage, and they occur much more mpidly in a tropical climate. The processing of fruits and soft drinks is a predominate food industry in tropical and subtropical countries. Some of the large companies in such industries are partly foreign owned. They seem to be efficiently operated with adequate capital, good management, and technological competence, all of which are usually imported from the parent company. However, most of small and medium companies are locally owned, and are deficient in technology and management ability. The products are generally fair. It is rare to find a trained quality assurance manager in these companies. Processing of good fruit products, especially for export, requires sound fruit processing lines as well as good managementthat achieves internationally accept­ ed standards of quality.

Book Description Springer. Paperback. Condition: New. 238 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.6in.The processing of fruits and their juices is an important internationally branch of the food industry. Many fruit pro- cessing plants are situated in the tropics or subtropics or they process fruit or fruit products from theseareas. Tropical and subtropical climates provide ideal conditions for the rapid growth of microorganisms and for chemical reactions. Most of thesereactions are detrimental to the overall quality of fruits and fruit products. This laboratory manual presents both the classical laborious methods of chemical, physical, microbiological and organo- leptical methods of analysis and the modern, sophisticated but rapid procedures of testing and analysing. Special at- tention is given to economical, rapid methods which are rea- dily available and easy to use in tropical climates. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9783642776892
