Using Food Science and Technology to Improve Nutrition and Promote National Development: Selected Case Studies (online and freely downloadable)

Editors: Gordon Robertson, John Lupien; ISBN No 978-0-9810247-0-7

IUFoST aims to strengthen the role of food science and technology in helping secure the world’s food supply and eliminate world hunger by delivering programs such as distance education, workshops and integrated food systems targeted to these needs. It is hoped that this handbook will show, through the use of case studies, how the application of food science and technology has improved nutrition and promoted national development in developing countries.

The handbook is intended to transmit useful information on applications of food science and technology to those affiliated to both developed and developing countries. Making the chapters freely available for download will ensure the widest-possible audience.
