The bottled waters industry has become a vital and vigorous sector of the beverage world, in developed and developing countries worldwide. Since publication of the first edition in 1998, the industry has undergone a remarkable expansion, and this has served to underline the need for an accessible source of technical guidance.
This book is unique in providing an overview of the science and technology of the bottled waters industry. The second edition has been strengthened by bringing in a US co-Editor, and the coverage has been thoroughly revised and considerably extended. A new chapter is included on cleaning and disinfection.
The book provides a definitive source of reference for beverage technologists, packaging technologists, analytical chemists, microbiologists and health and safety personnel.
