Citrus juices constitute the majority of the fruit juices consumed in the United States and around the world. Along with the rest of the fruit juice industry, they playa major role in the entire food industry as well. In spite of this prominence, few texts have been written on quality control technology; and most of the texts have been written by researchers who may possess great technical skill but generally are less familiar with daily routine quality control problems and concerns than quality control technologists are. On the other hand, quality control technologists and managers generally do not have the time and/or the talent to write books or communicate through scientific literature. The author recognized the need for an updated, comprehensive, and easily understood text on citrus quality control. This text has been designed to be used not only by processors, bottlers, canners, and others involved in the citrus industry, but it can be of value to instructors and students of citrus technology. Researchers also can find value in the foundations laid down by the text, especially in regard to the needs and concerns of the processing industry. Also, consultants and marketing personnel will be greatly helped by understanding the concepts of this volume. Persons in related industries also will find many applications that can be easily adapted to their needs. It may be impossible to foresee all problems and situations that can occur in various plants at various times. It has been said that the only thing that does not change is change itself. Constant revision of procedures, policies, and technical information should be an integral part of every quality control program. All quality control personnel should be receiving constant training', and procedures should be under continued scrutiny and development. Each company should have a quality control manual to supplement this text. The manual should outline procedures and policies specific to the individual plant's operation and facilities. Reference material should be orderly, readily available, and easy to understand.
