Food is made of chemicals. To the food manufacturer, these chemicals are all potentially significant, as they determine the nutritional value, eating properties and suitability for use in particular products and processes. This book explains, to those without expertise in food chemistry, some of the basics of food chemical composition. Adopting a strong industrial slant, the book uses examples from food manufacturing and the industry-consumer interface to put food composition in context, considering how it relates to wider issues like safety assurance, traceability, product development and labelling. Selected examples are used to illustrate specific points that often get overlooked in discussions of the chemicals that are either natural to foods or used in preservation and processing. Industrialists and students alike will welcome this book as an aid to understanding the importance of food composition. This book is published in association with CCFRA.

Wood as Raw Material: Source, Structure, Chemical Composition, Growth, Degradation and Identification focuses on the scientific advancements in general forestry. This book discusses the value of wood as a raw material as looked upon from biological, botanical, and technical perspective. Organized into 12 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the importance of forest trees as sources of wood. This text then examines the chemical composition and ultrastructure of wood. Other chapters explain the biological mechanisms of wood and bark formation by forest trees. This book discusses as well the certain fundamental relationships between tree growth and wood structure. The final chapter deals with wood identification in North America and European forest tree species. This book is a valuable resource for students engaged in the study of forest management, wood science and technology, tree physiology, silviculture, forest soils, forest genetics, forest engineering, pulp and paper technology, forest and wood pathology, and other specialized areas. Foresters and technologists will also find this book useful.

Edible Mushrooms provides an advanced overview of the chemical composition and nutritional properties of nearly all species of culinary mushrooms. This unique compendium gathers all current literature, which has beendispersed as fragmentary information until now. The book is broken into five parts covering chemical and nutrient composition, taste and flavor components as well as health stimulating and potentially detrimental effects. Appendices provide helpful quick references on abbreviations, common names of mushrooms, fatty acid profiles, and an index of mushroom species. Mycologists, nutrition researchers, mushroom cultivators and distributors, and food and neutraceutical processors will benefit from this sweeping overview of edible mushrooms. Thoroughly explores the chemical composition and nutritional value of both cultivated and wild growing mushroom species. Gathers all the information available on mushroom compounds in order providing an easy comparison of nutritional properties and bioactive compounds. Includes hundreds of current references allowing you to further your exploration of the topic by reviewing the detailed data in the primary literature.
