Food Bites - The Science of the Foods We Eat
Edited by R W Hartel and A K Hartel
Food Bites is an easy-to-read, often humorous book on the scientific basis of the foods we eat,
and answers those pesky, niggling questions such as: Is the quality of beer really affected by the
type of water used? and Processed foods: good or bad? Readers will be captivated by this superbly written
book, especially so as their guides are Professor Richard Hartel, professor of Food Engineering at
UW-Madison, along with his daughter, AnnaKate Hartel. Professor Hartel has for the last four years
penned a witty and illuminating column on all aspects of food science for the Capital
Times of Madison, and his weekly wisdom has now been collected into a single publication.
With a huge and growing interest in the science of food, this treasure trove of knowledge and
practical information, in 60 bite-sized chunks, is sure to be a bestseller.
