Annotation -
The subject is focused on understanding of advanced level of chemical processes taking place at production and storage of foods. Special importance have undesirable changes, processes and reactions that form basic of food technologies. Understanding the parallel and the consecutive changes of basic food components during unit operations is essential as well as interactions of reactants with food components.
