FPEN 707: Food Process and Product Design, Development and Evaluation


This course will highlight recent advances in food process design using modern technologies and how these can be applied to processing of Ghanaian foods. Topics to be covered will include design of equipment for upgrading and improving traditional food processes, pulsed electric field processing, irradiation process design, design for high-pressure food processing, microfiltration, microwave and radio-frequency heating processes for food, high voltage food processing technology: theory, processing design and applications, Extraction process design (supercritical fluid extraction, liquid-liquid extraction and solid-liquid extraction), food frying process design (heating and mass transfer during frying).
