Emulsifiers in Food Technology
September 2004, Wiley-Blackwell
Each chapter in this volume considers one of the main chemical
groups of food emulsifiers. Within each group the structures of the
emulsifiers are considered, together with their modes of action.
This is followed by a discussion of their production / extraction
and physical characteristics, together with practical examples of
their application. Appendices cross-reference emulsifier types with
applications, and give E-numbers, international names, synonyms and
references to analytical standards and methods.
This is a book for food scientists and technologists, ingredients suppliers and quality assurance personnel.

"This book brings together the principal emulsifiers used in the
food industry, each group being covered by a contributor with
practical experience in the topic.
Altogether, this is a consistently well-edited publication... What can be a rather 'dry' topic has been made very approachable, and the book provides a useful source for those involved in product development." (International Journal of Dairy Technology, Vol 59(1), 2006)
"...this book is very informative because it provides valuable
information to people involved in this field. ...it contains
updated information and covers all categories of compounds.
Furthermore, it is addressed to a wide range of readership
(academic staff, research institutes, students, industrial
practitioners) who are expected to find a lot of useful and updated
information herein." (International Journal of Food Science
& Technology, April 2005)
"In summary, this book is a good introduction to the potential
of emulsifiers in food technology and should be a useful reference
source for scientists, technologists and ingredients suppliers
wishing to familiarise themselves with, or update their knowledge
of, currently permitted food emulsifiers" (Chemistry World,
"This book provides an account of the chemistry, manufacture,
application and legal status of emulsifiers, and is aimed at food
scientists, food technologists, ingredients suppliers and quality
assurance personnel." (Food Science and Technology
Abstracts, Volume 36 (11) 2004)
"The book is well written and should provide some very useful
information." (Food Australia, Official Journal of AIFST
Inc, Vol 57, No 12, 2005)
"For those Individuals in technical positions, in product developmetn with responsibility for a wide range of products, this small book would be a useful guide to teh complicated array of emulsifiers presently available and their main functionalities, and therefore, applications.
