This outstanding three-volume reference delineates the physical and chemical properties of nutrients and other food components and provides step-by-step descriptions of preparation, detection, separation, derivatization, and clean-up techniques; it also assesses the relative advantage, accurate, and reliability of each procedure.
Volume 1 evaluates current methods of measuring optical properties and other physical characteristics of food and of tracing moisture and ash content and nutrient analyties ranging from peptides, proteins, and enzymes to aroma compounds to carbohydrates and starch. Volume 2 compiles modern methods for the detection of residues in foods from pesticides, herbicides, antibacterials, food packaging, and other sources. It also provides tools used in the analysis of various substances added to foods as enhancements or quality safeguards. Volume 3 explores usage and results with chemometrics, differential scanning calorimetry, chromatographic and electrophoretic techniques, DNA- and protein-bsed analyses, and cutting-edge methods utilizing biosensors and nanoscale analytical systems. Attuned to contemporary food industry concerns, the third volume also features topical coverage of the analysis of meat quality and the quantification of genetically modified organisms in food.
