Food Analysis Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

New Physico-Chemical Techniques for the Characterization of Complex Food Systems

edited by E. Dickinson


New Physico-Chemical Techniques for the Characterization of Complex Food Systems collects together in a single volume information on a range of new physico-chemical techniques which can be used to probe food structure at the molecular, colloidal and microscopic levels. Each chapter is written by an acknowledged expert in the field.

Strongly represented amongst the chapters are descriptions of different types of microscopy and spectroscopy, as well as various scattering and rheological techniques. The essential background principles of the technique are introduced, along with a discussion of its main advantages and disadvantages. It also illustrates its application with a number of well-chosen food-related examples.

New Physico-Chemical Techniques for the Characterization of Complex Food Systems is a great reference for food chemists, food analysts, and physical scientists interested in biological and food systems.
