Dairy Technology Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Advanced Dairy Chemistry
Volume 2: Lipids
Third edition
edited by P.F. Fox

Advanced Dairy Chemistry Volume 2: Lipids, Third Edition is a definitive handbook on milk lipids, and included:

  • synthesis of fatty acids and acylglycerols
  • compounds associated with the milk fat fraction
  • analytical aspects
  • behavior of lipids during processing and their effect on product characteristics
  • product defects arising from lipolysis and oxidation of lipids
  • nutritional significance of milk lipids

This edition has been updated and considerably expanded. New chapters cover the following subjects:

  • Biosynthesis and nutritional significance of conjugated linoleic acid, which has assumed major significance during the past decade; Formation and biological significance of oxysterols
  • The milk fat globule membrane as a source of nutritionally and technologically significant products
  • Physical, chemical and enzymatic modification of milk fat
  • Significance of fat in dairy products: creams, cheese, ice cream, milk powders and infant formulae
  • Analytical methods: chromatographic, spectroscopic, ultrasound and physical methods
