Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


The concepts and operating principles of chemical engineering are finding diverse applications in the area of food engineering or food technology. Food scientists and technologists are closely working with chemical engineers to bring the functionality based food design (formulation), the food products that have substantial retention of the functions that were intended at the formulation stage, to a practical outcome. Chemical engineering principles have also found significant application in various areas such as biopharmaceuticals manufacturing, and biochemical reactor engineering. The active communication between chemical engineering researchers and practicing engineers and food technologists and scientists, the non-chemical engineers or technologists can significantly contribute to many developments that have to involve good manufacturing practices.
