About the book

The objective of this book is to make the food professionals acquainted with recent directions of the research work in food science. The different sections of this book project will describe the utilization of digital transformation in the food industry using the available applications of digital tools such as the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), sensor technologies, and blockchain. The effect of climate changes on the agro-industry will be discussed through the issues of climate changes, climate adaptation, agro-ecosystems, and environmental aspects and impacts. Recently, the food industry is subjected to unexpected new risks such as pandemics, lack of specific food supply, financial situations, and information technology problems so this too should be taken into consideration in the food science research work. As the food industry is a consumer-driven industry the continual improvement is a cornerstone in this industry. Recent technologies such as nanotechnology, membrane technology, and high-pressure technology besides the advanced analytical methods such as applications of the electron microscope and PCR would be covered.
