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.

The third of a seven-volume series, The Literature of the Agricultural Sciences, this book analyzes the trends in published literature of animal science and health during the past century with emphasis on the past forty years. It uses citation analysis and other bibliometric techniques to identify the most important journals, report series, and monographs for the developed countries as well as those in the Third World.

Plant Proteins is a compendium of papers discussing, in general, plant proteins as materials for human foods, and in particular, the properties, biosynthesis, deposition of reserves in seeds, undesirable factors, production, and nutritional aspects of plant proteins in the food industry. Some papers review the properties and biosynthesis of plant proteins, the synthesis of chloroplast proteins, and legume seed proteins. Other papers discuss the development of protein reserves in seeds, as well as the toxicity and antagonistic actions in relation to amino acid and protein synthesis. One paper examines the world supply and demand for sources of protein from three plant sources, namely cereals, oilseeds, and legumes. Another paper discusses the capabilities of certain species of micro-organisms to synthesize from a few simple raw materials all the main components needed in the diet of a human or a farm animal. One paper notes that the acceptance of plant protein foods in society depends on their presentation, flavor, texture, appearance, identity, and product name. This compendium will benefit agronomists, agriculturists, biochemists, microbiologists, nutritionists, botanists, chemists, economists, food scientists, physicists and plant breeders.

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.
