Generation of Aromas and Flavours Book Description :

Consumer product acceptance and market success are dependent on the product's aroma/flavour. Flavours can be produced through chemical synthesis, microbial biocatalysis or by extraction from plants and animal sources. In recent times, chemical synthesis is not as desirable as this is not eco-friendly. So, in the food industry, natural ingredients are added to preparations for efficiency, softness or emotional appeal. Microbiology, bioengineering and biochemistry have enabled the elucidation of metabolic pathways; genetic engineering is expected to help in identifying metabolic blockages and creating novel high-yielding strains, while proteomics help in the application of analytical techniques. All these sciences, old and new, will lead to innovative ideas in the quest for better, sustainable and consumer-approved flavours and aromas.

Food Flavours Technology Handbook Book Description :

No doubt flavour is one of the most important attributes of the food products we eat in our daily life. Man does not eat simply to live but even more so lives to eat. Flavourings are focused on altering or enhancing the flavours of natural food product or creating flavour for food products that do not have the desired flavours for example bakery goods and other snacks. Flavour is generally defined in terms of three components; odour, taste and texture. Its characterization is concern with the similarities in human flavour perception using methods that designed to average out the differences. The flavour of foods may be classified as natural flavour (pre existing in diet particularly in fruits, vegetables and spices), process flavour (arising in end products as a result of conventional processes), compounded flavour (intentionally added flavouring), taste modifiers and abnormal taste and taints. Some of the flavouring materials produced by processing are chocolate, cheese, blue cheese, yogurt, wine, aroma chemicals etc. The flavour industry has become a vital element in the growth and success of food and beverage industries worldwide. The flavours industry remains very country specific and complex, with product formulations and flavours varying from country to country, as well as from region to region within countries. Processed foods, their flavours and textures, are adapted to local consumer preferences. Local or traditional foods have unique flavours evolving from the indigenous climate, land, etc. Generally speaking, trends in flavours closely mirror those in the packaged food and drink market. This includes the trends toward premium quality, savoury, natural and authentic, and health and wellness. The global flavour industry can be characterized as highly technical, specialized, and innovative. This industry is highly competitive and concentrated, compared to other product categories within the food and beverage market. The global flavours market is predicted to

Genetic modification is one of the most important and controversial issues facing the food industry today. Drawing on an international team of contributors, this book explores its major impact on fruit and vegetable cultivation and subsequent food processing. The introduction analyzes the available tools and methods, from the selection and isolation of genes to safety issues such as the stability of transgenes. The contributors then discuss the range of properties that have been the subject of genetic enhancement, including agronomic traits such as fruit quality and resistance to environmental stresses, as well as sensory properties such as color, flavor, processing functionality, and nutritional quality. The text also examines the use of molecular markers in plant breeding. Subsequent chapters consider how biotechnology can improve plant defense mechanisms and also extend the post-harvest life of fruit and vegetables. Thorough case studies illustrate the efforts involved and the positive effects resulting from genetic modification, and also offer insight into future applications. To complete the survey of this field, the editor explores the vital issues of consumer attitudes and risk assessment. -Examines how biotechnology can improve the quality and productivity of fruit and vegetable cultivation -Considers current commercial developments with the transgenic potato -Explores consumer attitudes, consumer confidence, and risk assessment -Lists references at the end of each chapter for further exploration

Biotechnology in Flavor Production Book Description :

Throughout history, human beings have sought ways to enhance the flavor of the foods they eat. In the 21st century, biotechnology plays an important role in the flavor improvement of many types of foods. This book covers many of the biotechnological approaches currently being applied to flavor enhancement. The contribution of microbial metabolism to flavor development in fermented beverages and dairy products has been exploited for thousands of years, but the recent availability of whole genome sequences of the yeasts and bacteria involved in these processes is stimulating targeted approaches to flavor enhancement. Chapters discuss recent developments in the flavor modification of wine, beer, and dairy products through the manipulation of the microbial species involved. Biotechnological approaches to the production of specific flavor molecules in microbes and plant tissue cultures, and the challenges that have been encountered, are also covered, along with the metabolic engineering of food crops for flavor enhancement - also a current area of research. Biotechnology is also being applied to crop breeding through marker-assisted selection for important traits, including flavor, and the book looks at the application of the biotechnological approach to breeding for enhanced flavor in rice, apple, and basil. These techniques are subject to governmental regulation, and this is addressed in a dedicated chapter. This updated second edition features five brand new chapters, and the topics covered in the book will be of interest to those in the flavor and food industries as well as to academic researchers interested in flavors.

Food Flavour Technology Book Description :

Food flavour technology is of key importance for the food industry.Increasingly, food products must comply with legal requirements andconform to consumer demands for “natural” products, butthe simple fact is that, if foods do not taste good, they will notbe consumed and any nutritional benefit will be lost. Thereis therefore keen interest throughout the world in the production,utilisation and analysis of flavours. The second edition of this successful book offers a broadintroduction to the formulation, origins, analysis and performanceof food flavours, updating the original chapters and addingvaluable new material that introduces some of the newermethodologies and recent advances. The creation of flavourings is the starting point for the book,outlining the methodology and constraints faced byflavourists. Further constraints are considered in a chapterdealing with international legislation. The origins of flavours aredescribed in three chapters covering thermal generation,biogeneration and natural sources, keeping in mind the adjustmentsthat manufacturers have had to make to their raw materials andprocesses to meet the demand for natural products whilst complyingwith cost issues. Delivery of flavours using encapsulation orthrough an understanding of the properties of the food matrix isdescribed in the next two chapters, and this section is followed bychapters describing the different ways to analyse flavours usinginstrumental, modelling and sensory techniques. The book is aimedat food scientists and technologists, ingredients suppliers,quality assurance personnel, analytical chemists andbiotechnologists.
