Overview


Co-Editors M. Elena Castell-Perez and Rosana Moreira, both of Texas A&M University, publish the best original research on applications of engineering principles and concepts to food and food processes. The processes include any physical properties and changes to the food product that result in preservation of the food, extending to transportation, product shelf-life, or improvements in the product quality attributes. Articles should address sustainability of process technology and means to reduce energy/water waste and consumption.


Aims and Scope


The Journal of Food Process Engineering publishes the best original research on applications of engineering principles and concepts to food and food processes with emphasis on process simulation, including mathematical models to describe processes and to allow for scale-up of processes for food manufacturing. Read by researchers, food, agricultural, biological, and chemical engineers, and industry experts, this is the only international journal specifically devoted to the engineering aspects of food processing. JFPE covers a range of topics, including:

  • Transport of liquid and solid foods
  • Heating and cooling processes
  • Food freezing and frozen food storage
  • Frying processes
  • Membrane separation processes
  • New and improved extrusion processes
  • Packaging processes including Modified Atmosphere Packaging and intelligent packaging
  • Non-thermal processes including irradiation processing, high pressure processing, electric pulse fields and minimal processing technologies
  • Cleaning and sanitation processes
  • Process development and design
  • Process instrumentation and control including sensors
  • Nanotechnology applications to food processes (new ingredients, new process technologies, sensors)
  • Use of biotechnology to improve food processes
  • New processing technologies to improve food quality and safety
  • Green, clean, and sustainable process technology
