Description

This free online course will begin with novel food processing technologies. Food processing is the conversion of raw ingredients, by physical or chemical means into food, or of food into other forms. Food processing combines raw food ingredients to produce marketable food products that can be easily prepared and served by the consumer. 

Next you will study emerging technologies which have already found in the food industry like high pressure processing of food, membrane technology, food irradiation will be extensively studied.

Next you will cover novel and emerging technology in food
processing and preservation that is microwave heating is generated by the absorption of microwave by a dielectric material and then a brief overview of dielectric heating which is radio frequency heating.

Finally super critical fluid extraction and the principles of the process and technological aspects including the systems available for supercritical fluid extraction and application aspects of this process in food industry will be studied.
