This book offers accessible and practical information, suitable for readers across a range of knowledge levels and food-related disciplines, for applying statistical and mathematical technologies in food science. Its focus is on the application of complex methodologies which have been recently introduced in the field (managing physicochemical, chemical, rheological, nutritional, and sensory data) and have proven to be extremely useful in characterizing new products and processes in the food industries. Theoretical explanations, practical examples and case studies ensure that this is an easy-to-follow and comprehensive text, not just a theoretical guide for non-statisticians. It will therefore be of value to all food science professionals with varying degrees o9f statistical skill, as well as researchers, undergraduate and graduate students. – Back cover.
