The Role of Materials Science in Food Bioengineering, Volume 19 in the Handbook of Food Bioengineering, presents an up-to-date review of the most recent advances in materials science, further demonstrating its broad applications in the food industry and bioengineering. Many types of materials are described, with their impact in food design discussed. The book provides insights into a range of new possibilities for the use of materials and new technologies in the field of food bioengineering. This is an essential reference on bioengineering that is not only ideal for researchers, scientists and food manufacturers, but also for students and educators.

About Author

Dr. Grumezescu is Assistant Professor at the Department of Science and Engineering of Oxide Materials and Nanomaterials, in the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science, with a second affiliation to the Faculty of Medical Engineering, at the Politehnica University of Bucharest in Romania. He is an experienced and oft-published researcher and editor in the field of nano and biomaterials, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of three journals: Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, Letters and Applied NanoBioScience, and Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Bulletin. He also serves as editor or guest editor for several notable journals. Dr. Grumezescu has published 150 peer-reviewed papers, 20 book chapters, 6 co-authored books and 11 edited books. Alina-Maria Holban is a Lecturer in Microbiology and Immunology, at the Faculty of Biology, University of Bucharest; and associate Researcher at the University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania, working on the field of bionanomaterials with antimicrobial applications. The contribution of Dr Holban in her research field is supported by the publication of 75 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 42 conference/symposia proceedings (posters and oral presentations, from which 29 were presented in International scientific meetings), 21 edited books, 20 book chapters in international books and 2 GenBank original sequences (patents). More than 50% of the published papers are investigating the applications of nanomaterials on biomedical fields.
