Analytical Methods for Food Additives Excerpt :

The accurate measurement of additives in food is essential in meeting both regulatory requirements and the need of consumers for accurate information about the products they eat. Whilst there are established methods of analysis for many additives, others lack agreed or complete methods because of the complexity of the additive or the food matrix to which such additives are commonly added. Analytical methods for food additives addresses this important problem for 26 major additives. In each case, the authors review current research to establish the best available methods and how they should be used. The book covers a wide range of additives, from azorubine and adipic acid to sunset yellow and saccharin. Each chapter reviews the range of current analytical methods, sets out their performance characteristics, procedures and parameters, and provides recommendations on best practice and future research.

Fingerprinting Techniques in Food Authentication and Traceability Excerpt :

There is an increasing interest by consumers for high-quality food products with a clear geographical origin. With these products in demand, suitable analytical techniques are needed for the quality control. Current analytical approaches are mass spectrometry techniques, spectroscopic techniques, separation techniques, and others. Fingerprinting Techniques in Food Authentication and Traceability discusses the principles of the techniques together with their advantages and drawbacks, and reported applications concerning geographical authenticity. A combination of methods analyzing different types of food compounds seems to be the most promising approach to establish the geographical origin. The abundant acquired data are analyzed by chemometrics. Producing safe and high-quality food is a prerequisite to ensure consumer health and successful domestic and international trade, and is critical to the sustainable development of national agricultural resources. Systems to trace food or feed products through specified stages of production, processing, and distribution play a key role in assuring food safety. Analytical techniques that enable the provenance of food to be determined provide an independent means of verifying traceability systems and also help to prove product authenticity, to combat fraudulent practices and to control adulteration, which are important issues for economic, religious, or cultural reasons. Proof of provenance has become an important topic in the context of food safety, food quality, and consumer protection in accordance with national legislation and international standards and guidelines.

Rapid and On Line Instrumentation for Food Quality Assurance Excerpt :

Many measurements of product and process characteristics have traditionally been 'off-line', involving removing the product and taking it to a quality control laboratory for analysis over a period of hours or even days. However, the development of faster, more automated methods of production, and the shift to more proactive quality and safety management systems such as HACCP, has forced the food industry to look for more rapid methods with the potential for continuous, real-time measurement of products and processes. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, this important collection summarises key developments in this growing field. Part one reviews the emergence of new methods for analysing food safety. It includes chapters on the detection of foreign bodies, other contaminants such as toxins, pesticides, dioxins and veterinary residues, and rapid methods for detecting pathogenic and spoilage bacteria. Part two discusses the measurement of product quality. There are chapters on analysing ingredients such as additives and micronutrients, genetically-modified organisms and added water. A number of chapters discuss methods for analysing food composition, and the use of electronic noses to monitor food quality.

Multiresidue Methods for the Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Food Excerpt :

In the last decades the public concern on the pesticide residues content in foods have been steadily rising. The global development of food trade implies that aliments from everywhere in the world can reach the consumer`s table. Therefore, the identification of agricultural practices that employ different pesticides combinations and application rates to protect produce must be characterized, as they left residues that could be noxious to human health. However, the possible number of pesticides (and its metabolites of toxicological relevance) to be found in a specific commodity is almost 1500, and the time needed to analyze them one by one, makes this analytical strategy a unrealistic task. To overcome this problem, the concept of Multi Residue Methods (MRM) for the analysis of pesticide traces have been developed. The advent of new and highly sensitive instrumentation, based in hyphenatedchromatographic systems to coupled mass analyzers (XC (MS/MS) or MSn) permitted simultaneously the identification and the determination of up to hundreds of pesticide residues in a single chromatographic run. Multiresidue Methods for the Analysis of Pesticide Residues in Food presents the analytical procedures developed in the literature, as well as those currently employed in the most advanced laboratories that perform routinely Pesticide Residue Analysis in foods. In addition to these points, the regulations, guidelines and recommendations from the most important regulatory agencies of the world on the topic will be commented and contrasted.

Antimicrobial Food Additives Excerpt :

The chemical preservation of food plays an essential role in both food science and the food processing industry. Despite its importance, however, information has remained dispersed in journals and handbooks. Now, the two authors, both leading research scientists at Hoechst, provide the first comprehensive overview of all aspects of food preservation by chemical techniques. The first sections deal with general aspects of importance to all preservatives, while special chapters concentrate on the properties and uses of industrial preservatives. Of special interest is the comprehensive listing of the English, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian trade names of these chemical additives. Although completely revised and enlarged, this book is based on the 3rd German edition of Chemische Lebensmittelkonservierung by the same authors, and its detailed and practice-oriented explanations make this a valuable source of information for food specialists in industry, government authorities and nutritional science.
