Food Process Engineering Laboratory
What does it cover?
Food process engineering is concerned with food characterisation using physical methods and with examining, planning and optimising processes. Work in this area covers analysis of processes and process steps, and development and modelling of processes, including the necessary plant engineering. It looks at questions such as: How can a specific food be processed? How can manufacturing processes be optimised for industry? And what are the issues surrounding food safety and processing (can foreign materials enter machines, for example)?
