About this title:

Synopsis:

This useful reference is the first book to address key aspects of food powder technology. It assembles organized and updated information on the physical properties, production, and functionality of food powder, previously unavailable in book form.

From the Back Cover:

Food Powders: Physical Properties, Processing, and Functionality is a comprehensive review on the characterization of ingredients, semi-processed and finished products when they are in a powdered form. It includes the description of different industrial unit operations such as drying, grinding, mixing, agglomeration, and encapsulation that supply food powders of different composition and microstructure. It also includes several analytical tools to characterize food powders by their particle size, size distribution, physical properties, and functionality.

Among others, this book addresses the following key aspects of food powder technology:

  • powder sampling methods
  • single particle-related properties and their evaluation
  • food powder bulk properties
  • size reduction and size enlargement operations
  • food particle drying techniques
  • food powder encapsulation processes
  • dry powder separation and classification technology
  • conveying and mixing of food powders
  • storage alternatives for food powders
  • undesirable phenomena encountered during food powder processing, storage, and transportation

Published as part of the Springer Food Engineering Book Series, Food Powders: Physical Properties, Processing, was designed to be an essential reference for individuals in the food industry and academia interested in a book which covers all the basic aspects as well as the latest developments in this challenging field.
