The ability to trace and authenticate a food product is of major concern to the food industry. This important topic is reviewed extensively in this authoritative text on current and emerging techniques.

Part 1 Deals with analytical techniques applied to food authentication. There are chapters on both established and developing technologies, as well as discussions of chemometrics and data handling.

Part 2 Relates these methodologies to particular food and beverage products, such as meat, dairy products, cereals and wine.

Part 3 Traceability is reviewed in detail, looking at the development of efficient traceability systems and their application in practice to such areas as animal feed and fish processing.

Food Authenticity and Traceability will be an essential reference for all those concerned with food safety and quality.
