A fundamental understanding of polymers has evolved in recent years concurrent with advances in analytical instrumentation. The theories and methodologies developed for the galacturonan biopolymers (collectively called pectins) have seldom been discoursed comprehensively in the context of the new knowledge. This text explains the scientific and technical basis of many of the practices followed in processing and preparing foods fabricated with or containing pectin. The material is presented in a very readable fashion for those with limited technical training. Structural analysis Commercial extractions methods Pectin formulations and tropical fruit analysis Molecular mechanisms of gelatin Enzymology Polymer comformation techniques Analytical methods of polymer analysis

Pectins are biopolymers with multiple applications because of their structural diversity and complexity. Although pectins from different sources have some common structural characteristics, many aspects of the common structure change according to the species and the physiological stage of the plant. Moreover, the application of pectin is determined by its chemical features, including galacturonic acid content, methoxyl content, degree of esterification and acetyl value. The most traditional raw materials used for the extraction of pectins are either apple pomace or citrus peels that are supplied as by-products of juice production. Both materials contain significant amounts of pectic substances, but with different chemical characteristics that make them suitable for specific applications. Considering that pectin is widely used as a functional ingredient, many researchers have been testing the use of other materials and alternative methods of extraction for industrial exploitation. This book discusses the chemical properties of pectin. It addition, it includes the uses and health benefits that pectin may have.

The Dictionary of Food Ingredients is a unique, easy-to-use source of infor mation on over 1,000 food ingredients. Like the previous editions, the new and updated Third Edition provides clear and concise information on currently used additives, including natural ingredients, FDA-approved artificial ingredients, and compounds used in food processing. The dictionary entries, organized in alphabetical order, include information on ingredient functions, chemical properties, and uses in food products. The updated and revised Third Edition contains approximately 1 SO new entries, and includes an updated and expanded bibliography. It also lists food ingredients ac cording to U. S. federal regulatory status. Users of the two previous editions have commented favorably on the dictionary's straightforward and clearly-written definitions, and we have endeavored to maintain that standard in this new edition. We trust it will continue to be a valuable reference for the food scientist, food processor, food product developer, nutritionist, extension specialist, and student. R S. Igoe Y. H.

The fourth edition of this classic text continues to use a multidisciplinary approach to expose the non-major food science student to the physical and chemical composition of foods. Additionally, food preparation and processing, food safety, food chemistry, and food technology applications are discussed in this single source of information. The book begins with an Introduction to Food Components, Quality and Water. Next, it addresses Carbohydrates in Food, Starches, Pectins and Gums. Grains: Cereals, Flour, Rice and Pasta, and Vegetables and Fruits follow. Proteins in Food, Meat, Poultry, Fish, and Dry Beans; Eggs and Egg Products, Milk and Milk Products as well as Fats and Oil Products, Food Emulsions and Foams are covered. Next, Sugar, Sweeteners, and Confections and a chapter on Baked Products Batters and Dough is presented. A new section entitled Aspects of Food Processing covers information on Food Preservation, Food Additives, and Food Packaging. Food Safety and Government Regulation of the Food Supply and Labeling are also discussed in this text. As appropriate, each chapter discusses the nutritive value and safety issues of the highlighted commodity. The USDA My Plate is utilized throughout the chapters. A Conclusion, Glossary and further References as well as Bibliography are included in each chapter. Appendices at the end of the book include a variety of current topics such as Biotechnology, Functional Foods, Nutraceuticals, Phytochemicals, Medical Foods, USDA Choosemyplate.gov, Food Label Health Claims, Research Chefs Association certification, Human Nutrigenomics and New Product Development.
