This book, volume 111 in the series Food Science and Technology, covers the transport properties of food materials and systems. It deals with viscosity, moisture diffusivities, thermal conductivity and diffusivity, transport and permeability of small molecules as well as heat and mass transfer coefficients. Physical, mathematical, or empirical models of the transport processes for each application, as well as principal property values and measuring methods for various food products and systems are also covered. The book will be of value to food, agricultural, biological, and chemical engineers; food processors; food technologists; quality control specialists; biochemists; microbiologists and nutritionists as well as advanced students of these disciplines.
