Fruits & vegetables are an important nutritional requirement of human beings as these foods not only meet the quantitative needs to some extent but also supply vitamins & minerals which improve the quality of the diet & maintain health. Fruit, vegetables & oil seeds processing is one of the pillars of the food & edible oil industry. India is the second largest producer of both fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are the reservoir of vital nutrients. Being highly perishable, 20 to 40% of the total production of fruits and vegetables goes waste from the time of harvesting till they reach the consumers. It is, therefore, necessary to make them available for consumption throughout the year in processed or preserved form and to save the sizeable amount of losses. At present, about 2% of the total produce is processed in India mainly for domestic consumption. Fruits and vegetables have great potential for value addition and diversification to give a boost to food industry, create employment opportunities and give better returns to the farmers. Oil seeds also play an important role in the food sector & daily life. Edible oils constitute an important component of Indian households. Domestic edible oil consumption in India is increasing. Self sufficiency in edible oils today stands at in recent years, availabilities of non conventional oil, rice bran oil, soybean oil, palmolein oil and cottonseed have increased. Oils are essential components of all plants. However, commercial oil production facilities only utilize plants that accumulate large amounts of oil and are readily available In order to improve the nutritional status of the people & also to exploit the export potential of processed products there is need to increase the productivity of processed food in the country. Currently, India accounts for 7.0% of world oilseeds output; 7.0% of world oil meal production; 6.0% of world oil meal export; 6.0% of world veg. oil production; 14% of world veg. oil import; and 10 % of the world edible oil consumption. Some of the fundamentals of the book are preservation of pineapple, mango and papaya chunks by hurdle technology, effect of boiling on beta-carotene content of forest green leafy vegetables consumed by tribals of south India, process development for production of pure apple juice in natural colour of choice, physical refining of rice bran and soybean oils, anti nutrients and protein digestibility of fababean and ricebean as affected by soaking, dehulling and germination, quality changes in banana (musa acuminata) wines on adding pectolase and passion fruit, essential oil composition of fresh and osmotically dehydrated galgal peels, development of cold grinding process, packaging and storage of cumin powder, bakery products and confections, etc. This book deals completely on the basic principles & methodology of fruits, vegetables, corn & oilseed processing & its preservation. This will be very resourceful to readers especially to technocrats, engineers, upcoming entrepreneurs, scientists, food technologists etc.

The term 'consumption' covers the desire for goods and services, their acquisition, use, and disposal. The study of consumption has grown enormously in recent years, and it has been the subject of major historiographical debates: did the eighteenth century bring a consumer revolution? Was there a great divergence between East and West? Did the twentieth century see the triumph of global consumerism? Questions of consumption have become defining topics in all branches of history, from gender and labour history to political history and cultural studies. The Oxford Handbook of the History of Consumption offers a timely overview of how our understanding of consumption in history has changed in the last generation, taking the reader from the ancient period to the twenty-first century. It includes chapters on Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America, brings together new perspectives, highlights cutting-edge areas of research, and offers a guide through the main historiographical developments. Contributions from leading historians examine the spaces of consumption, consumer politics, luxury and waste, nationalism and empire, the body, well-being, youth cultures, and fashion. The Handbook also showcases the different ways in which recent historians have approached the subject, from cultural and economic history to political history and technology studies, including areas where multidisciplinary approaches have been especially fruitful.

According to European legislation, extra virgin is the top gradeof olive oils. It has a superior level of health properties andflavour compared to virgin and refined olive oils. Mediterraneancountries still produce more than 85% of olive oil globally, butthe constant increase of demand for extra virgin olive oil has ledto new cultivation and production in other areas of the world,including California, Australia, China, South Africa and SouthAmerica. At the same time, olive oil’s sensory properties andhealth benefits are increasingly attracting the attention andinterest of nutritionists, food processors, manufacturers and foodservices. Progress and innovation in olive cultivation, harvestingand milling technologies as well as in oil handling, storage andselling conditions make it possible to achieve even higher qualitylevels than those stipulated for extra virgin oils. As aconsequence, a new segment – excellent extra virgin oliveoils – is increasingly attracting the attention of the marketand earning consumers’ preference. The Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Handbook provides a completeaccount of olive oil’s composition, health properties,quality, and the legal standards surrounding its production. Thebook is divided into convenient sections focusing on extra virginolive oil as a product, the process by which it is made, and theprocess control system through which its quality is assured. Anappendix presents a series of tables and graphs with useful data,including conversion factors, and the chemical and physicalcharacteristics of olive oil. This book is aimed at people involved in the industrial productionas well as in the marketing and use of extra virgin olive oil whoare looking for practical information, which avoids overly academiclanguage, but which is still scientifically and technically sound.The main purpose of the handbook is to guide operators involved inthe extra virgin olive oil chain in making the most appropriatedecisions about product quality and operating conditions in theproduction and distribution processes. To these groups, the mostimportant questions are practical ones of why, how, how often, howmuch will it cost, and so on. The Extra-Virgin Olive OilHandbook will provide the right answers to these key practicalconsiderations, in a simple, clear yet precise and up-to-dateway.
