Book Description :

Flexible packaging today has one of the highest growth rates across all printing sectors, achieving an annual global growth of close to five percent. Important trends include smaller run lengths, a requirement for multi-versions and variations, personalization and a growing interest in adding in-line value ‒ all undoubted opportunities for narrow- and mid-web label converters (using both flexo and digital technology) to capture a growing portion of the flexibles market. Jobs with the shortest run sizes are in pouches of any kind, as well as in single serve and one-dose packs and sachets. These are key areas where label converters can most readily enter the flexible packaging market. Indeed, narrower and mid-web conventional and digital printing has effectively opened up the market to a whole range of new customers who have never previously had a solution for short-run flexible packaging orders. But it

Book Description :

This Brief is concerned with the material chemistry of food packaging materials. It introduces the properties and peculiarities of typical packaging materials, such as plastics, cellulose components, ceramics and metals. Their overall performance as food packaging material is determined by the chemical and physical properties. The Brief describes how the final properties of a food packaging material can be influenced through chemical modifications in the structure and composition of the used components. The authors also cover potential chemical reactions of food packaging materials that may affect their performance. Potential hazards that may arise, such as influences on the product quality, or effects on their recycling or disposal, are discussed. Different influences, like metal corrosion, chemical resistance and degradability of the main packaging materials, or properties like hydrophobicity, surface energy and migration have to be taken into account. This Brief gives an introduction to all these different aspects of food packaging.

Book Description :

Food and beverages can be very aggressive chemical milieu and may interact strongly with materials that they touch. Whenever food is placed in contact with another substance, there is a risk that chemicals from the contact material may migrate into the food. These chemicals may be harmful if ingested in large quantities, or impart a taint or odour to the food, negatively affecting food quality. Food packaging is the most obvious example of a food contact material. As the demand for pre-packaged foods increases, so might the potential risk to consumers from the release of chemicals into the food product. Chemical migration and food contact materials reviews the latest controls and research in this field and how they can be used to ensure that food is safe to eat. Part one discusses the regulation and quality control of chemical migration into food. Part two reviews the latest developments in areas such as exposure estimation and analysis of food contact materials. The final part contains specific chapters on major food contact materials and packaging types, such as recycled plastics, metals, paper and board, multi-layer packaging and intelligent packaging. With its distinguished editors and international team of authors, Chemical migration and food contact materials is an essential reference for scientists and professionals in food packaging manufacture and food processing, as well as all those concerned with assessing the safety of food.

Book Description :

High pressure processing is a fast-growing food processing technology and opens the door to nearly-fresh products that retain their sensorial and nutritional qualities. High Pressure Processing of Fruit and Vegetable Products reviews and summarizes the latest advances in novel high-pressure processing techniques for preserving fruits, fruit juices, and their mixtures. It contains basic information on the relation of high-process treatment parameters with the safety and quality of fruit and vegetable juices/products. The book focuses on product quality parameters, nutritional value, bio-active health components, and microbial safety and stability. The main aim of this book is to summarize the advances in the utilization of modern high pressure pasteurization (HPP) treatment to preserve and stabilize fruit and vegetable products. HPP technology is related to the product quality parameters, the content of nutritional and health active components, and the microbial safety and subsequent shelf life. One chapter of this book is devoted to industrial equipment available; other chapters deal with examples of commercial fruit and vegetable products. Another chapter of this book is dedicated to packaging, as packaging of food before HPP is mandatory in this technology. The regulatory aspects for high-pressure treated fruit and vegetable products in different regions of the world (Europe, the United States, Asia, and Australia) are also an important topic dealt within one chapter of the book. The effects of HPP technology on the quality of fruit and vegetable products, namely nutrients and stability, health active components, and sensory aspects, are reviewed in a trio of chapters.
