Design and Optimization of Innovative Food Processing Techniques Assisted by Ultrasound: Developing Healthier and Sustainable Food Products is a useful tool in understanding the innovative applications derived from the use of ultrasound technology. The book is a starting point for product development, covering technological, physicochemical and nutritional perspectives, as well as the reduction of food toxics and contaminants. Divided into three parts, sections cover ultrasound usage in obtaining functional foods, extracting bioactive compounds, the improvement of food quality, ultrasound use for the development of novel applications, and more.
As the definitive resource in new innovative ultrasound-based emerging processes, this book is a necessity for food scientists and technologists, nutrition researchers, and those working in the food manufacturing industry.

Giancarlo Cravotto is a researcher in the Department of Drug Science and Technology at the University of Turin. His research activity is documented in more than 300 peer-reviewed scientific papers and approximately 20 international and national patents. His research activity has been centered on natural products extraction, purification, synthesis and chemical modification. These studies have paved the road to new synthetic procedures by means of non-conventional energy sources (microwaves, acoustic and hydrodynamic cavitation, mechanochemistry, flow chemistry etc.). These studies also prompted the development of innovative hybrid reactors and green protocols, and these techniques and equipment have been applied in organic synthesis, in plants extraction, in food processing, in the degradation of persistent organic pollutants, sample preparation and several applications of industrial interest.
Farid CHEMAT is a full Professor of Chemistry at Avignon University, Director of GREEN Extraction Team (innovative techniques, alternative solvents, and original procedures for green extraction of natural products), co-director of ORTESA LabCom research unit Naturex-UAPV, and scientific coordinator of "France Eco-Extraction dealing with dissemination of research and education on green extraction technologies. He received his engineer diploma from University of Blida-Algeria (1990) and his PhD degree (1994) in process engineering from the Institut National Polytechnique of Toulouse-France. After periods of postdoctoral research work with Prolabo-Merck, Rhone-Poulenc and Unilever (1995-1997), he spent two years (1997-1999) as senior researcher at University of Wageningen-The Netherlands. In 1999, he moved to the University of La Réunion-France DOM as assistant professor and since 2006 holds the position of Professor of Food Chemistry at the University of Avignon-France. His research activity is documented by more than 200 scientific peer-reviewed papers, and about the same number of conferences and communications to scientific and industrial meetings, 10 books, 40 book chapters and 10 patents. His main research interests have focused on innovative and sustainable extraction and processing techniques (especially microwave, ultrasound and green solvents) for food, pharmaceutical, bio-energy and cosmetic applications.
