Food and feed analysis handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Rapid Methods for Food and Feed
Quality Determination
edited by A. van Amerongen

Rapid Methods for Food and Feed covers:

  • monitoring of processes at all stages
  • control of food and nutritional quality
  • detecting (micro)biological, chemical and physical deterioration of food and feed
  • detecting rapidly and reliably food authenticity and/or adulteration

Developments in analytical techniques have led to the emergence of a wide range of rapid methods to complement the traditional methods. Faster results, higher productivity, lower costs and increased sensitivity are key concepts those involved in writing this book.

Key topics include:

  • emerging rapid technologies
  • rapid monitoring of food and nutritional quality
  • rapid testing of quality deterioration and spoilage
  • rapid testing of authenticity and adulteration
  • quality tracking & tracing and rapid testing
