Food Structure—Its Creation and Evaluation reviews research and major developments with regard to the role of ingredients in building food structures. Emphasis is on homogeneous and heterogeneous multicomponent systems, their molecular interactions, the macroscopic physics of their mechanical properties, and the variety of techniques and strategies necessary to evaluate their properties if they are to be acceptable to the consumer. This book is comprised of 26 chapters and begins by discussing the relevance of food structure from a dental clinical perspective. The next chapter describes a hierarchy of gel structures that may be used to model the complex molecular networks formed by the protein and/or polysaccharide components within the food system, including simple single component networks, binary networks or mixed gels, and composite or filled gels. The reader is then introduced to the gel structure of food biopolymers; the structure and stability of emulsions; the polymer/water relationship and its importance for food structure; and the fracture properties of polymers. Dry spinning of milk proteins is also considered, along with structured fat and sugar systems, food crispness and texture. This monograph will be of interest to food scientists, sensory scientists, nutritionists, rheologists, physicists, and chemists.

Applications of Remote Sensing in Agriculture contains the proceedings of the 48th Easter School in Agricultural Science, held at the University of Nottingham on April 3-7, 1989. The meeting invites 146 delegates from over 22 countries and contributions to this book come from nine countries. This book generally presents a review of the achievements of remote sensing in agriculture, establishes the state of the art, and gives pointers to developments. This text is organized into seven parts, wherein Parts I-III cover the principles of remote sensing, climate, soil, land classification, and crop inventories. Productivity; stress; techniques for agricultural applications; and opportunities, progress, and prospects in the field of remote sensing in agriculture are also discussed.

Proteins as Human Food is a collection of studies that discuss the importance of inclusion of protein in human diet; the problems that cause and may arise from its insufficiency; and its solutions. The book is divided into seven parts. Part I covers topics related to the world supply and demand of protein such as problems related to the surplus and deficiency of protein production; nutrition policy with regard to protein; and methods on how to meet the world's protein needs. Part II tackles the preservation of protein and processing, as well as the altering effects of toxic agents and microorganisms on protein. Parts III, IV, and V respectively deals with the different animal, plant, and other unconventional sources of protein; their properties; and quality control. Part VI talks about the organoleptic qualities of protein foods and protein problems in large-scale catering, and Part VII covers regulatory mechanism in mammalian protein metabolism; effects of disproportionate amounts of amino acids; and the evaluation of protein. The text is recommended for nutritionists and chemists who would like to know more about the advancements in the studies of protein, its relevance to diet, and the solution to problems related to it.

Upgrading Waste for Feeds and Food considers how wasted or underutilized nutrients could be recovered and upgraded in order to make more food available, either directly or through animal intermediaries. This book assesses what progress had already been made in seeking a solution to the problem of large quantities of food being wasted. The topics discussed include the world outlook for food, sources of food waste, and recovery and utilization of protein from slaughterhouse effluents by chemical precipitation. The silage production, use of microbiological agents in upgrading waste for feed and food, and underutilized proteins for beverages are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the crude pectate gelling agents in heat processed foods and utilization of food wastes as raw material in the pet-food industry. This publication is a good source for agriculturists, nutritionists, and food technologists concerned with recovering wasted food.
