Methods of Analysis of Food Components and Additives (Chemical & Functional Properties of Food Components) 1st Edition

The ability to accurately separate, identify, and analyze nutrients, additives, and
toxicological compounds found in food and food products has become critically
important in recent decades, as knowledge of and interest in the relationships
between diet and health have increased. This requires training students and analysts
in the proper application of the best methods, as well as improving, developing, or
adapting existing methods to meet specific analytic needs. This book aids the analyst
by providing a valuable reference to both newly developed and established methods
of analysis of food components and additives.

The book comprises 16 chapters, which take the reader through brief and acces-
sible descriptions of methods of analysis of food components and additives. Ranging
from chemical analysis of food components and additives to infrared (IR), nuclear
magnetic resonance (NMR), Fourier transform Raman (FTR), capillary electro-
phoresis (CE), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatogra-
phy (GC), mass spectrometry (MS), and more. The book provides first-hand expla-
nations of modern methods, contributed by 24 leading scientists, many of whom
actually developed or refined the techniques, and presents new documented informa-
tion on standard methods of analysis of food components and additives in a uniform

format and in a style that can be understood by a reader who is not familiar with the
analysis of each component. Each chapter is structured to provide a description of
the information about the component or additive that can be analyzed, a simple
method explanation of how it works, examples of applications, and references for
more detailed information. This format also facilitates comparison of methods of
analysis of each component. The use of different authors to cover a broad spectrum
of methods resulted in some differences of style, but overall the book achieves its goal
