This short will evaluation the effect of nutrition constitution on moisture move. A multi-scale research of nutrients constitution will contain a glance at molecular constitution (e.g., unfastened quantity, crystallinity), nanostructure, microstructure (e.g., porous food), and macrostructure (e.g., bilayer structure). for every structural research, a spotlight at the mathematical modelling of the connection among structural houses and moisture move houses might be played.
