Using Food Science and Technology to Improve Nutrition and Promote National Development: Selected Case Studies
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.
