1 of 3

Ultrasound is an emerging technology that has been widely explored in food science and technology since the late 1990s.

The book is divided into three main areas.Chapters 1 to 5 focus on the basic principles of ultrasound and how the technology works on microbial cells, enzymes, and the chemistry behind the process. Chapters 6 to 15 cover the application of ultrasound in specific food products and processes, discussing changes on food quality and presenting some innovations in food ingredients and enhancement of unit operations. Finally, Chapters 16 to 20 present some topics about manufacture of ultrasound equipment and simulation of the process, the use of the technology to treat food industry wastewater, and an industry perspective. The laws and regulations concerning emerging technologies, such as ultrasound, are also discussed, including the new Food Safety Modernization Act.

  • Provides a clear and comprehensive panorama of ultrasound technology
  • Contains updated research behind this technology
  • Brings the current tested product and future uses
  • Explores potential future use within the food industry

Bermudez-Aguirre, Daniela
Daniela Bermudez-Aguirre has a background in Food Engineering (BSc), Food Science (MSc) and Engineering Science, with a focus on Food Engineering (PhD). During her graduate and post-doctorate work at Washington State University (WSU), she was involved in the development of nonthermal technologies for food processing and preservation, such as high hydrostatic pressure, pulsed electric fields, ultrasound, ultraviolet, cold plasma and ozone. Her research at WSU also included projects funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) to improve the quality of military rations without compromising the food safety using innovative thermal processing. Afterwards, Dr. Bermudez-Aguirre worked as a Senior Research Scientist for Lockheed Martin, a contractor of NASA. At NASA's Johnson Space Center, she was the Principal Investigator of a project that used of cold plasma to disinfect vegetables grown and consumed in-orbit by astronauts. In the last few years, she has been a consultant to industry and research centers about the use and applications of cold plasma equipment. Dr. Bermudez-Aguirre is author of more than 60 peer-review publications, editor of three books in Food Engineering, and reviewer of over 50 high-impact journals in food science and technology. She has more than 20 years of experience working on nonthermal technologies for food safety and product development.
