Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016 - 599 sivua
First published in 1984, and now in its 6th edition, this book has become the classic text on food chemistry around the world. The bulk components - carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals and water, and the trace components - colours, flavours, vitamins and preservatives, as well as food-borne toxins, allergens, pesticide residues and other undesirables all receive detailed consideration. Besides being extensively rewritten and updated a new chapter on enzymes has been included. At every stage attention is drawn to the links between the chemical components of food and their health and nutritional significance.
"Special Topics" section at the end of each chapter for specialist readers and advanced students
Food: The Chemistry of its Components will be of particular interest to students and teachers of food science, nutrition and applied chemistry in universities, colleges and schools. Its accessible style ensures that it will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in food issues.
Extracts from reviews of previous editions:
..". filled me with delight, curiosity and wonder. All the chemistry is very clear and I thoroughly recommend it."
The Chemical Educator, 1997
"The author is adept at describing recent developments in the broad context of food chemistry and human nutrition. ...this book is highly recommended for anyone who wants an accessible, attractively priced introduction to this important subject."
Chemistry in Australia, 2009
"This is a lively and thorough treatment of the subject. I can recommend it to anyone interested in food, as an excellent reference, or just to pick up and browse. It is easy to be hooked by it. It would serve as a useful reference source for A-Level students."
