Interestingly the information in this manual is the same proven science and technology!
I know Chris Hansmann well, from having worked together on a Cashew Apple Processing project, through the South African Association of Food Scientists & Technologists (SAAFoST) and for having worked for sister R&D organisations. I am therefore confident of the soundness of the science as well as the applicability of the technology presented.
The manual is comprehensive, starting with some of the principles of preservation, moving into the different processes that are applicable (both from a process and a product viewpoint), covering hygiene and nutritional aspects and ending on recipes to be used with these processes.
This is a book you should put in your Technology Directory/Folder for the time you need some good technical information on fruit processing, whether it be for indigenous or other fruit.
