Continuing the mission of the first two editions, Food Emulsions: Principles, Practices, and Techniques, Third Edition covers the fundamentals of emulsion science and demonstrates how this knowledge can be applied to control the appearance, stability, and texture of emulsion-based foods. Initially developed to fill the need for a single resource covering all areas of food emulsion formation, stability, characterization, and application, the first two editions raised the bar for references in this field. This third edition is poised to do the same. See What’s New in the Third Edition: New chapters have been added on Emulsion-Based Delivery Systems and the Gastrointestinal Fate of Emulsions All chapters have been revised and updated, including new methods of fabricating and characterizing emulsions New figures have been included, and previous ones have been redrawn As in previous editions, the main focus of this book is on presenting the fundamental principles of emulsion science and technology that underlie all types of emulsion-based food products. It highlights practical applications and provides an overview of modern areas of research. Figures and diagrams add emphasis to important concepts and present the underlying theory in a clear and approachable manner. These features and more give you a firm grounding in basic principles that will aid in the rational design of new products, the improvement of existing products, and the more rapid solution of processing problems.

Maintaining the high standards that made the previous editions such well-respected and widely used references, Food Lipids: Chemistry, Nutrition, and Biotechnology, Third Edition tightens its focus to emphasize lipids from the point of entry into the food supply and highlights recent findings regarding antioxidants and lipid oxidation. Always representative of the current state of lipid science, this edition provides four new chapters reflecting the latest advances in antioxidant research. New chapters include: Polyunsaturated Lipid Oxidation in Aqueous Systems, Tocopherol Stability and the Prooxidant Mechanisms of Oxidized Tocopherols in Lipids, Effects and Mechanisms of Minor Compounds in Oil on Lipid Oxidation, and Total Antioxidant Evaluation and Synergism. The most comprehensive and relevant treatment of food lipids available, this book highlights the role of dietary fats in foods, human health, and disease. Divided into five parts, it begins with the chemistry and properties of food lipids covering nomenclature and classification, extraction and analysis, and chemistry and function. Part II addresses processing techniques including recovery, refining, converting, and stabilizing, as well as chemical interesterification. The third Part has been renamed and expanded to honor the growing data on oxidation and antioxidants. Part IV explores the myriad interactions of lipids in nutrition and health with information on heart disease, obesity, and cancer, and Part V continues with contributions on biotechnology and biochemistry including a chapter on the genetic engineering of crops that produce vegetable oil. Revised and updated with new information and references throughout the text, this third edition of a bestselling industry standard once again draws on the contributions of leading international experts to establish the latest benchmark in the field and provide the platform from which to further advance lipid science.

The sensory properties of foods are the most important reason people eat the foods they eat. What those properties are and how we best measure those properties are critical to understanding food and eating behavior. Appearance, flavor, texture, and even the sounds of food can impart a desire to eat or cause us to dismiss the food as unappetizing, stale, or even inappropriate from a cultural standpoint. This Special Issue focuses on how sensory properties are measured, the specific sensory properties of various foods, and consumer behavior related to which properties might be most important in certain situations and how consumers use sensory attributes to make decisions about what they will eat. This Special Issue contains both research papers and review articles.
