The Chemical Physics of Food
March 2007, Wiley-Blackwell
Edited by Peter Belton
Based on the principle that food science requires the same
rigour as the more traditional physical sciences, Professor Peter
Belton has drawn together an international team of authors to
demonstrate the chemical physics approach to food.
Combining the applications of chemical and physical methods
together with a clear quantitative consideration of data, The
Chemical Physics of Food offers the food scientist and
• Coverage of major materials, including starch and
• Consistent approach to the subject matter from a chemical physics viewpoint
• An esteemed team of international Authors
All those involved in research into food structure, including
food scientists, food technologists, food chemists and physicists
should find much of interest in this book which will also provide
libraries in all universities, research establishments and food
companies with a valuable reference for this important area.
