Professional Hydrocolloids Technology
Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Hydrocolloids
Second edition
edited by G. O. Phillips

The Handbook of Hydrocolloids is an invaluable reference for technicians responsible for selecting the correct hydrocolloids for their product requirements.

Features of the Second edition:

  • extensively revised and expanded second edition edited by two leading international authorities
  • provides an introduction to food hydrocolliods considering regulatory aspects and thickening characteristics
  • comprehensively examines the manufacture, structure, function and applications of over twenty five hydrocolloids
  • assesses health aspects of hydrocolloids examining the effects on metabolism and health

The second edition reviews over twenty-five hydrocolloids, covering:

  • structure and properties
  • processing
  • functionality
  • applications
  • regulatory status

Since there is now greater emphasis on the protein hydrocolloids, new chapters on vegetable proteins and egg protein have been added. Coverage of microbial polysaccharides has also been increased and the developing role of the exudate gums recognized, with a new chapter on Gum Ghatti. Protein-polysaccharide complexes are finding increased application in food products and a new chapter on this topic as been added. Two additional chapters reviewing the role of hydrocolloids in emulsification and their role as dietary fibre and subsequent health benefits are also included.
