<p><b>A comprehensive source of in-depth information&nbsp;provided&nbsp;on existing and emerging food technologies based on the&nbsp;electromagnetic&nbsp;spectrum&nbsp;&nbsp;</b></p> <p><i>Electromagnetic Technologies in Food Science</i>&nbsp;examines various methods&nbsp;employed&nbsp;in food applications that are based on the entire electromagnetic (EM) spectrum. Focusing on recent advances and challenges in food science and technology, this&nbsp;is an&nbsp;up-to-date volume&nbsp;that&nbsp;features&nbsp;vital&nbsp;contributions&nbsp;coming&nbsp;from an international panel of experts&nbsp;who have&nbsp;shared&nbsp;both fundamental&nbsp;and advanced knowledge&nbsp;of information&nbsp;on&nbsp;the&nbsp;dosimetry methods,&nbsp;and on potential applications of&nbsp;gamma irradiation, electron beams, X-rays, radio and microwaves, ultraviolet, visible, pulsed light, and more.&nbsp;</p> <p>Organized into four parts, the text begins with an accessible overview of the physics of the electromagnetic spectrum, followed by discussion on&nbsp;the application of the EM spectrum to non-thermal food processing. The physics of infrared radiation, microwaves, and other advanced heating methods are then&nbsp;deliberated&nbsp;in detail&mdash;supported by case studies and examples that illustrate a range of both current and potential applications of EM-based methods. The concluding section of the book describes analytical techniques&nbsp;adopted&nbsp;for quality control,&nbsp;such as hyperspectral imaging,&nbsp;infrared and Raman spectroscopy. This authoritative&nbsp;book&nbsp;resource:&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Covers advanced theoretical knowledge and practical applications on&nbsp;the use of EM spectrum&nbsp;as&nbsp;novel&nbsp;methods&nbsp;in food processing&nbsp;technology&nbsp;</li> <li>Discusses the latest progress in developing quality control methods, thus&nbsp;enabling the control of continuous fast-speed processes&nbsp;&nbsp;</li> <li>Explores future challenges and benefits of employing electromagnetic spectrum in food technology applications&nbsp;</li> <li>Addresses emerging processing technologies related to improving safety, preservation, and&nbsp;overall&nbsp;quality&nbsp;of various&nbsp;food&nbsp;commodities&nbsp;</li> </ul> <p><i>Electromagnetic Technologies in Food Science</i>&nbsp;is&nbsp;an&nbsp;essential reading&nbsp;material&nbsp;for&nbsp;undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, academics, and agri-food professionals&nbsp;working&nbsp;in&nbsp;the&nbsp;area of&nbsp;food preservation, novel food processing techniques and sustainable food production.&nbsp;</p>
