Food Process Modeling

3 – 0 – 0 : 3 Credits Prerequsites: None

Identification of design, operating and performance parameters in

mechanical, thermal and mass transfer operations carried out in food

processing such as: particulate size reduction, homogenization,

centrifugation, packaging, mixing, conveying, extrusion, storage, heating,

cooling, freezing, puffing, frying, distillation, extraction, concentration and

drying; Developing mathematical relationship between the independent and

dependent variables affecting the food processing operations by using

physical and chemical principles governing the processes.

Factorial, fractional-factorial and rotatable central composite experimental

design; Developing empirical equations using experimental data. Developing

predictive model using feed forward back propagation Neural network;

Optimization of processing parameters using Genetic algorithms. Application

of Fuzzy logic to sensory evaluation and ranking of foods.
