Shelf-Life Evaluation of Foods
Second Edition
edited by Dominic Man
and Adrian Jones

Shelf-Life Evaluation of Foods, now in its second edition, summarizes concisely and authoritatively information on the shelf life evaluation of foods. The first part of the book covers basic principles, while the remaining chapters cover specific commodities and product groups.

An invaluable productivity tool for food technologists, production managers, QA/C staff and new product development staff in small, medium and large food companies, this book will also be of value to students, lecturers and researchers in academic and research institutions.

Shelf-Life Evaluation of Foods 2nd Edition has been completed updated and expanded. It includes new chapters on:

  • HACCP
  • Preservation technology and shelf life
  • Minimally processed, ready-to-eat ambient-stable meat products

Sufficient information on the principles and practice of shelf life evaluation has been included for the student as well as for professionals.
