This book is one of the Eagan Press Handbook Series. Combining a user-friendly format with expert guidance, handbooks in this series meet the needs of professionals in many areas of the food industry. Each title focuses on an ingredient or application, giving information that was previously unavailable in a single source and presenting its subject in straightforward language. The current volume presents basics information about emulsifiers as well as practical advice about their uses in products from baked goods to dressings and sauces. To make technical topics accessible to a broader audience, the book provides easy-to-use tables and illustrations, as well as definitions of key terms. The broad scope encompasses emulsions and foams, molecular organization and structure of food emulsifiers, milk and dairy emulsions, and beverages. Describing emulsifiers in various products and processes, this handbook fills the gap between scientific literature and the product-specific information provided by suppliers The result is a volume that helps any food practitioner gain a common understanding of emulsifiers, their properties, and their application. Features such as troubleshooting guides, definitions of key terms, and fast facts make this an essential reference for anyone in the food industry, including: quality assurance personnel, purchasing agents, production personnel, teachers, students, suppliers, and technical sales representatives.
