Food Analysis - 4th edition

Edited by Nielsen, S. Suzanne 
Springer  2010  

Hardcover  550 pp  ISBN 9781441914774      £60.00
This book provides information on the techniques needed to analyze foods in laboratory experiments. All topics covered include information on the basic principles, procedures, advantages, limitations, and applications. This book is ideal for undergraduate courses in food analysis and is also an invaluable reference to professionals in the food industry. General information is provided on regulations, standards, labeling, sampling and data handling as background for chapters on specific methods to determine the chemical composition and characteristics of foods. Large, expanded sections on spectroscopy and chromatography are also included. Other methods and instrumentation such as thermal analysis, selective electrodes, enzymes, and immunoassays are covered from the perspective of their use in the chemical analysis of foods.

Written for students, professionals
