P. Tijskens, R. Schouten
Nature uses the same processes over and over again, in creative fashion for every new environment. Kinetic modelling is the modelling the processes occurring in nature, NOT applying some fancy mathematical function, but the laws of nature and rules of discipline. The majority of processes in our food are chemical reactions. Chemical kinetics are most appropriate to describe these processes. Process parameters are rather fundamental and specific for that reaction and can be transferred to the same process in different conditions. Creatively design an appropriate reaction mechanism and their differential equations. Try out different mechanisms if necessary (nature is very creative), but NEVER change the resulting mathematics.
