Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry

Langue : Anglais

Rédacteurs en Chef : Varelis Peter, Melton Laurence, Shahidi Fereidoon

Couverture de l’ouvrage Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry

The Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry is the ideal primer for food scientists, researchers, students and young professionals needing to quickly acquaint themselves with food chemistry. Well-organized, clearly written, and abundantly referenced, the Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry provides a foundation for readers to understand the principles, concepts, and techniques used in food chemistry applications.

Articles are written by international experts and cover a wide range of topics including food chemistry, food components and their interactions, properties (flavour, aroma, texture) the structure of food, functional foods, processing, storage, nanoparticles for food use, antioxidants, the Maillard and Strecker reactions, process derived contaminants, and the detection of economically-motivated food adulteration.

The encyclopedia will provide readers with an introduction to specific topics within the wider context of food chemistry, as well as helping them identify the links between the various sub-topics. Authors from research and industry will ensure that chapters are of high quality and reflect the latest knowledge and methods in the field. Its wide and interdisciplinary scope makes the Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry truly unique.

The Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry will contain 300 chapters across the following sections: Section 1: FOOD COMPONENTS Section 2: CHEMICAL AND ENZYMATIC REACTIONS Section 3: INTERACTIONS OF FOOD COMPONENTS Section 4: FOOD STRUCTURE Section 5: INNOVATIVE FOODS Section 6: FOOD ADULTERATION AND CONTAMINATION

  • Encyclopedic coverage: Offering readers a ?one-stop? resource with access to information across the entire scope of food chemistry and the various connections between the sub-topics
  • Clearly written: Chapters are concise and accessible, providing an authoritative introduction for non-specialists and readers from undergraduate level upwards, as well as up-to-date foundational content for those familiar with the field
  • Clearly structured: Meticulously organized with articles structured logically based on the various elements of food chemistry
  • Interdisciplinary: Chapters written by academics and practitioners from various fields and regions will enable the reader to understand how food chemistry methods can be applied in practice


Dr Peter Varelis is an applications chemist with Shimadzu Scientific Australia where he manages a team of chemists. Prior to joining Shimadzu he was a principal scientist and team leader at Food Standards Australia New Zealand. He trained as an organic chemist and has more than 20 years of research experience in both government and industry. His research interest is the application of mass spectrometry to the analysis of organic compounds that have implications for human health and nutrition. Peter obtained his PhD from the University of Western Australia. He was research professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology and principal research scientist with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Australia. From 2007 through to 2011, Peter was a theme leader with the National Centre for Food Protection and Defense.
Professor Laurence Melton was the Inaugural Professor of Food Chemistry at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, where he set up degrees in Food Science and Wine Science. He has been a Principal Investigator for the Riddet Centre of Research Excellence for Food Research. Formerly he was Professor of Food Science at the University of Otago, at Dunedin, N.Z. and earlier a scientist at Unilever’s Colworth House in Bedfordshire, U.K. His major research interest is how food macromolecules interact to give foods their structure (e.g. the complex mixture of polysaccharides that comprise plant cell walls (dietary fibres) and the interaction of proteins and polysaccharides such ß-lactoglobulin and pectins). He has published over 300 scientific papers and reports. Currently he is an Editor for Food Chemistry and Emeritus Professor at the University of Auckland. He wrote “As a teenager I was training to be an electrician but I thought it would be more exciting to be a chemist because there could be fires and explosions. And there were some. However, what kept me motivated over 50 years was the excitement of discovering stuff by do
