About this item

With contributions from a broad range of leading professors and scientists, this volume focuses on new areas of processing technologies in foods and plants to help meet the increasing food demand of the rapidly growing populations of the world.

The first section of the book is devoted to emerging entrepreneurship and employment opportunities for rural peoples in food and agricultural processing, specifically beekeeping technology and honey processing; herbal formulations for treatment of dental diseases; and engineering interventions for the extraction of essential oils from plants. Part 2 contains three chapters that discuss technological interventions in foods and plants for human health benefits, looking particularly at coffee, tea, and green leaf vegetable processing technology. The volume goes to look at several management strategies in agricultural engineering, with a chapter on production technology of ethanol from various sources and its potential applications in various industries, including chemical, food, pharmaceutical as well as biofuel. Food grain storage structures are addressed as well, focusing on minimizing losses from microbial pests as well as insect pests during grain storage by utilizing different efficient storage structures
