This new volume explores emerging and advanced techniques in the food processing sector. Novel food processing methods such as ultrasound processing, microwave heating, advanced drying methods, and nonthermal technologies are discussed in detail. The volume also covers the application of irradiation and encapsulation methods, microbial valorizing, and other novel food processing and preservation methods. Mathematical modeling concepts and case studies are also included to illustrate applications of modeling techniques in food processing. The volume promotes the understanding of the thermodynamics of food polymers, structural design principles, structural hierarchy, and the steps involved in food structuring and structure measurement techniques.
