Processing of foods is discussed with respect to design considerations for plant and machinery in India. Aspects considered include: primary processing (conversion of foods into a form fit for eating); secondary processing (conversion of primary processed foods into prepared foods); design considerations for plant and machinery (efficiency, costs, availability, product and process needs, hygiene); Indian processing and plant machinery; special development needs (high speed specialized centrifugal separators, large capacity spray-drying and roller-drying plants, evaporation and aroma recovery plants, specialized energy efficient heat exchangers, aseptic processing and packaging equipment, special types of forming and cooking machinery, equipment based on emerging techniques such as supercritical fluid extraction, cryogenics and membrane processing, latest types of freezing and freeze-drying equipment, and system designs); and research and development efforts. A listing is given of the important machinery required for selected food processing industries, including equipment for processing of: paddy; wheat; pulses; maize and millets; oilseeds; cane sugar; coffee and tea; milk; fruits and vegetables; meat and marine products. Fermentation processes are included.
