Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The market for carbonated beverages has grown dramatically over recent years in most countries, and this growth has required changes in the way factories are run. Like other food products, soft drinks are required to be produced under stringent hygiene conditions. Filling technology has progressed rapidly to meet the needs of manufacturers and consumers alike. Packaging choices have changed and there have been improvements in closure design.


This book provides an overview of carbonated soft drinks production in the early part of the twenty first century, presenting the latest information on carbonation and filling methods. There are also chapters on bottle design, can making, general packaging considerations, production and distribution. A final chapter deals with quality assurance, and environmental and legislative issues. Detailed references provide opportunity for further reading in more specialised areas. The book is aimed at graduates in food science, chemistry, microbiology and engineering who are considering a career in the soft drinks industry, as well as technical staff already employed within the industry and associated suppliers.

Format: Hardcover
There is relatively little here about the actual formulation of soft drinks. Like the ingredients of the most common types of drinks, and the chemistry of how these are stabilised in the drink. Granted, some [Coca Cola] are secret. But there could have been more information about how flavourings of drinks might be arrived at. So an orange flavour would be generated by... what?

Instead, the text is more about the mechanics and layout of a factory. The discussion includes how the floors should be of a certain composition and strength, to bear the weight of crates of drinks. And those crates might have a strong plastic wrap around them. The nature of the wrap is explained. Another topic is the type of bottling equipment used. It looks like the text is aimed at a mechanical or civil engineer who needs to know typical advice about designing or running such a factory.

This book covers a lot of ground and tells you things you didn't think to ask about. However, it's not perfect. It only informs you about issues of current formulation and production. For example, in the section on Nitrogen in the carbonation chapter, it discusses how nitrogen is used in the beer industry. But it doesn't address the speculative question of experimenting with different types of widgets in the beer bottle. Some parts of the book tell you things you aren't interested in, too, like what sorts of equipment are used to move pallets in warehouses. There are several other books that cover the same topics as this one, so I think I'll check those out.
