The diverse subjects focus on major scientific and technical issues encountered by technical staff at all levels on a daily basis, including beverage emulsions, taste-testing, and cost factors related to technical subjects.Stand-alone chapters provide concise explanations of scientific concepts underlying technology issues and address potential problems that both professionals and novices may face. This unique book allows for a better understanding of the practical aspects of the soft drinks industry from an insider's experience and perspective.
