Book Description:
The primary objective of food packaging is to contain and protect foodstuffs from physical, chemical and mostly microbiological spoilage. At the same time food packaging serves as a powerful marketing tool attracting the consumer with features such as easy opening and handling, information on the nutrient and caloric content of the contained product, instructions on the preparation and use of the package contents etc. It is difficult to imagine modern society without packaged goods. The authors/contributors of this book volume come from a variety of different backrounds and are well respected each one in their own field of research. Their contributions have made the objective of the book possible. Professionals such as food scientists, packaging technologists and engineers as well as students engaging in food packaging and seeking to update their knowledge will find the contents of this book useful.
