With changing consumer preferences and the focus on developing resilient food systems, food processing is finding its place in key policies, government interventions, global trade, and the overall food and nutritional security. Given this, this this new 3-volume collection presents a compilation of emerging and futuristic food processing technologies, introducing fundamental concepts of food technology, trending applications, and a range of interdisciplinary concepts that have found numerous interwoven applications in the food industry.

Volume 1 presents the basics of food preservation, covering hurdle technology, aspects of minimal processing, ohmic heating of foods, edible coatings, and electromagnetics and allied applications in food processing. It also discusses novel methods of food quality evaluation and covers the fundamentals and new applications of nanotechnology in the food sector.

The other volumes in the series are Volume 2: Advances in Nonthermal Processing Technologies, which focuses on the interesting field of nonthermal processing and its applications, and Volume 3: ICT Applications and Future Trends in Food Processing, which provides an exploration of the future of food processing, highlighting certain emerging and disruptive technologies and their gaining influence in the food sector.
