The previous 30 years have witnessed great interest in the microstructure of dairy products, which has a vital bearing on, e.g. texture, sensory qualities, shelf life and packaging requirements of dairy foods. During the same period, new techniques have been developed to visualise clearly the properties of these products. Hence, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) have been used as complimentary methods in quality appraisal of dairy products, and are used for product development and in trouble shooting wherever faults arise during manufacturing. Structure of Dairy Products, offers the reader:

  • information of importance in product development and quality control
  • internationally known contributing authors and book editor
  • thorough coverage of all major aspects of the subject
  • core, commercially useful knowledge for the dairy industry

This book will be of value to dairy scientists and technologists, food scientists and technologists, food chemists, physicists, rheologists and microscopists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments teaching and researching in these areas should have copies of this important work on their shelves.
