Freshness and Shelf Life of Foods is both an up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the subject, and it includes a number of breakthroughs in our understanding of freshness and shelf-life of foods.

This volume focuses on:

  • Shelf-life of foods
  • Flavor aspects of freshness
  • Rheological methods to determine freshness
  • Processing of citrus in relation to retaining its fresh character
  • Lipid oxidation in muscle foods
  • Food polymer science approach to studies on freshness and shelf-life
  • Plus much more!

Freshness and Shelf-Life of Foods focuses on the science and technology of preserving food freshness. This book discusses flavor, texture, and characterization methods to improve the freshness or shelf-life of a product.
