Description

The demand for flavourings has been constantly increasing over the last years as a result of the dramatic changes caused by a more and more industrialised life-style: The consumer is drawn to interesting, healthy, pleasurable, exciting or completely new taste experiences.
This book draws on the expert knowledge of nearly 40 contributors with backgrounds in both industry and academia and provides a comprehensive insight into the production, processing and application of various food flavourings. Methods of quality control and quality management are discussed in detail. The authors also focus on conventional and innovative analytical methods employed in this field and, last but not least, on toxicological, legal, and ethical aspects. Up-to-date references to pertinent literature and an in-depth subject index complete the book.

""The books draws on the expert knowledge of well-known contributors with backgrounds both in industry and academia. It intends to grant its readership a deep and broad insight into the production, processing and application of various food flavourings and also focuses on the basic and modern analytical methods used in this field. This book is useful for scientists working in both applied research and industrial R & D. It is therefore intended for a broad readership of technologists, analysts, microbiologists and food chemists active in the field of food flavouring. It is also suitable for teachers and students, both undergraduate and graduate, in departments of food science, food technology, food engineering, food chemistry, microbiology, and, of course, biotechnology.""
