Format: Hardcover
When I first placed my order I received an email from the supplier, updating me about the expected delivery date. Since I needed the book urgently it was reassuring to here from the company. I heard from them again once the book had been shipped and I was able to track the book. Once received, the book was slightly more used than indicated but the company worked immediately to rectify the issue. They were extremely helpful and easy to deal with. I am definitely willing to purchase from them again and to recommend them to friends and family.

HASH(0x9a10442c) out of 5 stars Milestone reference text! Sept. 9 2005
By Hiram Gòmez Pardo Venezuela - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Conceptually this book became a truly essential consult book and invaluable reference for all those involved in a real Food Engineering.

In twenty four chapters Potter clasps the main themes concerned with this passionate science: conservation and processing foods through the heat, refrigeration. Dehydration and concentration of aliments.

An invaluable guide and continuous learning process around the accurate temperature to preserve fruits, cereals, fishes, fruits, vegetables, beverages and all kind of meats.

Go for this. It will be very helpful for Industrial and Chemical Engineers and obviously for Pre Grade students.

This is such a great book for someone like me who works in the Food industry but has no former education in Food Science. This book is very easy to understand even if it is a bit wordy. This book stays in my lab office for reference.
