This web site was created to provide you with a wide range of resources
food engineering. Many of these topics are based on research conducted
by a number
of my former students and associates during their stay at
the Food Engineering
Laboratory, University of California, Davis, California.
find research proposals and reports on topics such as food dehydration,
freezing, thawing, frying, contact-cooking, energy conservation, time-temperature
indicators, and design of food processing equipment. Several papers presented
national and international meetings are provided.
If you are
a student or an instructor engaged in learning and teaching food
this site includes lecture materials for typical courses taught at
and postgraduate levels. Animated graphics are provided to
of new concepts. Information is provided on textbooks on
this site if you are seeking new equipment for a food plant, a reference
book, a list of professional meetings planned for this year, or names
institutions that offer food engineering instruction.
I hope you
find topics on food engineering challenging and rewarding.Your
is important to me in preparing future additions to this website.
