Innovations in Food Packaging addresses selective topics of functions of food packaging to modify the traditional notion of this process.
This book is organized into five parts. Part I focuses on the fundamental theories covering physical chemistry background and quality preservation of foods. Parts II and III discuss active packaging research and development and modified atmosphere packaging of fresh produce, meats, and ready-to-eat products, respectively. Part IV talks about edible and biodegradable coatings and films, whereas Part V discusses commercialization aspects of packaging technologies. Each part is divided into chapters of subject review and detailed technical information.
This text will benefit those who are interested in innovative technology of food packaging in general, and experienced field packaging specialists and graduate-level food scientists in particular. This book will be useful as a textbook not only for extension programs of food packaging development in food industry, but also for advanced graduate-level food packaging courses.

Review quote

"At a list price of $135, the book is a steal, a fraction of the cost to attend one food science or food packaging conference. It will yield much food for thought that you can keep shelved nearby and reference as needed. For food packaging science, this book is a smorgasbord that will keep you content with its detailed content."
- Rick Lingle for PACKAGING WORLD (2006)
