About the book

Processing of food materials is a prerequisite to obtain consumable food products. The food industry had a long journey and has evolved many times by applying different processing technologies, such as thermal, non-thermal and mild technologies. Consumer concerns have led the food industry to a different way of thinking in terms of implementing key technologies.The demands for more sustainable, healthier and tastier foods are increased in our daily diet. In the world today there is quite a high amount of options available to produce a high quality product. From starting thermal processing up to foodomics, to increase the level of food quality and safety, a number of multidisciplinary approaches are being researched.

This book aims to provide a comprehensive overview of food processing technologies to the reader, in basics and as well as innovative and emerging food processing technologies for food innovation.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
