Although one of the oldest microbial technologies used in food processing, solid-state fermentation (SSF) had, until recently, fallen out of favor. However, based on a series of established mathematical models, new design concepts for SSF bioreactors and process control strategies have been proposed, allowing SSF technology to reach new levels. Solid State Fermentation for Foods and Beverages covers these new technologies and their application to food and beverage production. The book systematically describes the production of solid-state fermented food and beverage in terms of the history and development of SSF technology and SSF foods, bio-reactor design, fermentation process, various substrate origins and sustainable development. It emphasizes Oriental traditional foods produced by SSF such as sufu, vinegar, soy sauce, Chinese distilled spirit, and rice wine. The authors address such engineering issues as mass and heat transfer and energy equation calculation of solid-state fermentation, dynamic modeling of solid-state fermentation, and process control of solid-state fermentation. Covering the latest developments and achievements in the field of SSF, the book provides a detailed introduction to various solid-state fermented foods and beverages, including product category, characteristics, functionalities, safety issues, and consumer perception. It explores real advantages of SSF processes and how their application at real scale for high quality production that is more and less costly.

This reference book includes 24 chapters written by a group of experts in the different fields of microfungi and cover a broad range of topics on microfungi. It provides the most updated information on the latest development in systematics and taxonomy of microfungi, new techniques which were developed in the last ten years and their application in microfungal research. After the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (Melbourne Code) was adopted by the Eighteenth International Botanical Congress Melbourne, Australia, July 2011, it has had a profound impact on mycology and its research. Fungal nomenclature changes and its significance to fungal taxonomy and naming of microfungi in the future is discussed in detail. Since dual names system for fungi developing both sexual and asexual states, and fungi developing only asexual state is no longer available, the first five chapters will clarify some confusion and provides perspective views on the direction for future research. The next nine chapters cover microfungi and their ecological roles or functions in the different habitats (air, indoor, aquatic, marine, plants, soils, etc). The remaining 13 chapters cover the relationship of microfungi and humans (good and bad) and usage or application microfungi in different industries, such as food, agriculture, forestry, green technology, pharmaceutics, and medicine, as well as in our daily life. The book bridges the gap between basic mycological research and applied mycology and provide readers a unique set of information and knowledge of microfungi generated from multiple angles in different fields of mycology.

Brings Together Current Knowledge and State-of-the-Art Information on Indigenous Fermented Foods Fermented foods and beverages span a range of root crops, cereals, pulses, vegetables, nuts, fruits, and animal products. Southeast Asia has a long history of utilizing fermentation in the production and preservation of foods, and is widely recognized for its prominent use. Indigenous Fermented Foods of Southeast Asia examines some indigenous fermented foods of Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines, focusing on the chemical, microbiological, and technological factors associated with their manufacture, quality, and safety. This text establishes a need for an adequate understanding of the fermentation process to ensure safe and reliable practices, as well as the consistent production of a quality product. The authors describe the production, microbiology, biochemistry, nutritional value, and dietary roles of a wide variety of indigenous fermented foods of Southeast Asia. Emphasizing the microbiological and biochemical processes in fermentations and examining the factors that influence the development of the characteristic microflora and chemical changes induced, they accurately describe each process and critically evaluate the roles of microbes in the fermentation. The classification of products is based on their microbial ecology (i.e. the predominant microbes involved), and the text includes examples of every major category of fermented food. The book covers tempe, starter cultures, sweet/sour/alcoholic rice and cassava fermentations, alcoholic fermentations, soy sauce, Bacillus fermentations, and lactic acid bacterial fermentations of vegetables, durian fruit, rice noodles, meats, and sea foods. This book answers a series of basic questions addressing: Dominant/desired microbes Suitable factors in processing and the environment Commonly present microbes Compounds utilized as major carbon and energy sources Sources of fermentable carbohydrates Main biochemical activities and chemical changes True yield of product per kilogram of initial raw materials Possible hazards associated with a product How possible hazards may be minimized or eliminated Research needs and opportunities Indigenous Fermented Foods of Southeast Asia evaluates the state of scientific knowledge of the fermentations and identifies specific questions that need to be answered in order to promote the reproducibility, safety and future prospects of these fermented foods.

For several years, the food industry has been interested inidentifying components in foods which have health benefits to beused in the development of functional food and nutraceuticalproducts. Examples of these ingredients include fibre,phytosterols, peptides, proteins, isoflavones, saponins, phyticacid, probiotics, prebiotics and functional enzymes. Although muchprogress has been made in the identification, extraction andcharacterisation of these ingredients, there remains a need forready and near-market platform technologies for processing theseingredients into marketable value-added functional food andnutraceutical products. This book looks at how these ingredientscan be effectively incorporated into food systems for market, andprovides practical guidelines on how challenges in specific foodsectors (such as health claims and marketing) can be addressedduring processing. Nutraceutical and Functional Food Processing Technologyis a comprehensive overview of current and emerging trends in theformulation and manufacture of nutraceutical and functional foodproducts. It highlights the distinctions between foods falling intothe nutraceutical and functional food categories. Topics includesustainable and environmentally–friendly approaches to theproduction of health foods, guidelines and regulations, and methodsfor assessing safety and quality of nutraceutical and functionalfood products. Specific applications of nutraceuticals in emulsionand salad dressing food products, beverages and soft drinks, bakedgoods, cereals and extruded products, fermented food products arecovered, as are novel food proteins and peptides, and methods forencapsulated nutraceutical ingredients and packaging.
