The fourth edition of this classic text continues to use a multidisciplinary approach to expose the non-major food science student to the physical and chemical composition of foods. Additionally, food preparation and processing, food safety, food chemistry, and food technology applications are discussed in this single source of information. The book begins with an Introduction to Food Components, Quality and Water. Next, it addresses Carbohydrates in Food, Starches, Pectins and Gums. Grains: Cereals, Flour, Rice and Pasta, and Vegetables and Fruits follow. Proteins in Food, Meat, Poultry, Fish, and Dry Beans; Eggs and Egg Products, Milk and Milk Products as well as Fats and Oil Products, Food Emulsions and Foams are covered. Next, Sugar, Sweeteners, and Confections and a chapter on Baked Products Batters and Dough is presented. A new section entitled Aspects of Food Processing covers information on Food Preservation, Food Additives, and Food Packaging. Food Safety and Government Regulation of the Food Supply and Labeling are also discussed in this text. As appropriate, each chapter discusses the nutritive value and safety issues of the highlighted commodity. The USDA My Plate is utilized throughout the chapters. A Conclusion, Glossary and further References as well as Bibliography are included in each chapter. Appendices at the end of the book include a variety of current topics such as Biotechnology, Functional Foods, Nutraceuticals, Phytochemicals, Medical Foods, USDA Choosemyplate.gov, Food Label Health Claims, Research Chefs Association certification, Human Nutrigenomics and New Product Development.

Essentials of Food Science covers the basics of foods, food science, and food technology. The book is meant for the non-major intro course, whether taught in the food science or nutrition/dietetics department. In previous editions the book was organized around the USDA Food Pyramid which has been replaced. The revised pyramid will now be mentioned in appropriate chapters only. Other updates include new photos, website references, and culinary alerts for culinary and food preparation students. Two added topics include RFID (Radio frequency ID) tags, and trans fat disclosures. Includes updates on: food commodities, optimizing quality, laws, and food safety.

An Aspen Food Science Text Series Book. All of the essential information that you have come to rely on in the widely-acclaimed 'Principles of Food Sanitation' by Norman G. Marriott is now available to you in a simplified, practical, and updated format. Providing a step-by-step, hands-on approach, this incomparable text offers useful and interesting information on food sanitation at all stages of food processing and food service and stresses how important the role of each employee is at each stage. Essentials of Food Sanitation covers a wide variety of topics from cleaning and sanitizing compounds, systems and equipment to food sanitation in various types of food processing such as dairy products, seafood, meat and poultry, etc. Each chapter provides food handlers and students with interesting real-life reports of recent food sanitation problems plus different techniques to ensure firm understanding of the subject, including: visual aides; a comprehensive glossary; several summaries, study questions; references; chapter bibliographies; a resource section on how to learn more about the topic; and case studies. A thorough discussion of HACCP and how a HACCP system relates to quality assurance and sanitation functions is also outlined in the text. Furthermore, expanded material on foodservice, including the methods and principles for sanitary food handling and considerations at various control points inthe flow of foodservice is provided.

In addition, there is a completely new section which includes safety and sanitation as well as laboratory exercises in sensory, microbiological, and chemical quality tests, and processing methods for a variety of the foods described in previous chapters. Designed to be used by students that may not have an extensive background in the sciences, this outstanding text does not, however, avoid coverage of complex elements of food science; rather it explains them in a way that facilitates their understanding.

Almost two decades have passed since the first edition of Food Science was published in 1968. Previous editions have been widely circulated in the United States and abroad and have been accepted as a textbook in many colleges and universities. The book also has been translated into Japanese and Spanish. This response has encouraged me to adhere to prior objectives in preparing this fourth edition. The book continues to be aimed primarily at those with no previous instruction in food sci ence. Its purpose is to introduce and to survey the complex and fasci nating interrelationships between the properties of food materials and the changing methods of handling and manufacturing them into an al most unlimited number of useful products. The book especially ad dresses the needs for insight and appreciation of the broad scope of food science by students considering this field as a profession, as well as those by professionals in allied fields that service or interface with the food industry in ever-increasing ways. The literature of food science and food technology has rapidly ma tured from earlier articles to books to encyclopedias. Where technolog ical capabilities once were limited, rapid advances in many fields contin ually raise questions on the responsible management of technology and its environmental, social, and economic consequences. Changes in em phasis have been many. Affluent countries have become more con cerned with the health effects of nutrient excesses than with deficien cies, while hungry nations continue to suffer shortages.

Now in its fifth edition, Food Science remains the most popular and reliable text for introductory courses in food science and technology. This new edition retains the basic format and pedagogical features of previous editions and provides an up-to-date foundation upon which more advanced and specialized knowledge can be built. This essential volume introduces and surveys the broad and complex interrelationships among food ingredients, processing, packaging, distribution and storage, and explores how these factors influence food quality and safety. Reflecting recent advances and emerging technologies in the area, this new edition includes updated commodity and ingredient chapters to emphasize the growing importance of analogs, macro-substitutions, fat fiber and sugar substitutes and replacement products, especially as they affect new product development and increasing concerns for a healthier diet. Revised processing chapters include changing attitudes toward food irradiation, greater use of microwave cooking and microwaveable products, controlled and modified atmosphere packaging and expanding technologies such a extrusion cooking, ohmic heating and supercritical fluid extraction, new information that addresses concerns about the responsible management of food technology, considering environmental, social and economic consequences, as well as the increasing globalization of the food industry. Discussions of food safety an consumer protection including newer phychrotropic pathogens; HAACP techniques for product safety and quality; new information on food additives; pesticides and hormones; and the latest information on nutrition labeling and food regulation. An outstanding text for students with little or no previous instruction in food science and technology, Food Science is also a valuable reference for professionals in food processing, as well as for those working in fields that service, regulate or otherwise interface with the food industry.
