Since the publication of the first edition of Industrial Chocolate Manufacture and Use in 1988, it has become the leading technical book for the industry.
Fully revised, this fifth edition provides up to date information on all major aspects of chocolate manufacture and use, and features new chapters on artisan chocolate making, chocolate compounds and coatings, and sensory evaluation and analysis.
From the beginning it was recognised that the complexity of the chocolate industry means that no single person can be an expert in every aspect of it. For example, the academic view of a process such as crystallisation can be very different from that of a tempering machine operator. It is also known that the biggest selling chocolate, in say the USA, tastes very different from that in the UK. With both of these issues in mind, many topics are covered in multiple chapters by an international group of leading authors, providing different perspectives.
Beckett′s Industrial Chocolate Manufacture and Use is an essential purchase for all those involved in the manufacture, use and sale of chocolate containing products. It is an indispensible handbook for chocolate scientists, engineers and technologists working both in industry and academia.
