The object ofthis text is to examine, and elaborate on the meaning of the established premise that 'taste is a chemical sense.' In particular, the major effort is directed toward the degree to which chemical principles apply to phenomena associated with the inductive (recognition) phase of taste. A second objective is to describe the structure and properties of compounds with varying taste that allow decisions to be made with respect to the probable nature of the recognition chemistry for the different tastes, and the probable nature of the receptor(s) for those tastes. A final objective is to include appropriate interdisciplinary observations that have application to solving problems related to the chemical nature of taste. Taste is the most easily accessible chemical structure-biological activity relationship, and taste chemistry studies, i.e. the chemistry of sweetness, saltiness, sourness, and bitterness, have application to general biology, physiology, and pharmacology. Because it involves sensory perception, taste is also of interest to psychologists, and has application to the food and agricultural industries. The largest portion of the text is directed toward sweetness as, due to economic and other factors, the majority of the scientific studies are concerned with sweetness. The text begins with a prologue to describe the problems associated with the study of taste chemistry. Then, there is an introductory chapter to serve as an overview of the general interdisciplinary knowledge of the subject. It is followed by a chapter on the fundamental chemical principles that apply to taste induction chemistry.

This resource provides effective mechanistic methods for analyzing and understanding physical and chemical behaviour in foods, and explains how to manipulate and control such behaviour during food processing, distribution and use.;Written by 23 authorities in the field, Physical Chemistry of Foods: treats factors controlling crystallization, cross-linking reactions, dispersion and surface-adsorption processes in foods and clarifies how to modify crystal size distribution, stabilize dispersions and minimize fouling; explores uptake competition between mineral nutrients - offering guidelines for efficient uptake and absorption; describes kinetic rate-controlling steps in Maillard reactions - examining how to manipulate Maillard browning; discusses how gels form and instrumental methods of following gelling processes and covers how to create gel-based textures and structures in foods; considers factors that control the behaviour of bread during dough development, proofing, and baking - showing how carbon dioxide release affects loaf expansion; and reveals how glass transitions affect rheological and kinetic behaviour and transport processes in foods - detailing how to manipulate glass transitions and product behaviour by changes in composition and water content.;Food scientists and technologists; food, agricultural and bioresource engineers; physical and surface chemists; nutritionists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students and industrial trainees in these disciplines will repeatedly find valuable new insights and approaches for dealing with practical and theoretical problems and a wealth of useful information in Physical Chemistry of Foods, with its more than 1380 literature citations.

Taste, perhaps the most intimate of the five senses, has traditionally been considered beneath the concern of philosophy, too bound to the body, too personal and idiosyncratic. Yet, in addition to providing physical pleasure, eating and drinking bear symbolic and aesthetic value in human experience, and they continually inspire writers and artists. In Making Sense of Taste, Carolyn Korsmeyer explains how taste came to occupy so low a place in the hierarchy of senses and why it is deserving of greater philosophical respect and attention. Korsmeyer begins with the Greek thinkers who classified taste as an inferior, bodily sense; she then traces the parallels between notions of aesthetic and gustatory taste that were explored in the formation of modern aesthetic theories. She presents scientific views of how taste actually works and identifies multiple components of taste experiences. Turning to taste's objects—food and drink—she looks at the different meanings they convey in art and literature as well as in ordinary human life and proposes an approach to the aesthetic value of taste that recognizes the representational and expressive roles of food. Korsmeyer's consideration of art encompasses works that employ food in contexts sacred and profane, that seek to whet the appetite and to keep it at bay; her selection of literary vignettes ranges from narratives of macabre devouring to stories of communities forged by shared eating.

The 3rd edition has been extensively re-written and many topics of particular interest to food technologists have been added or completely revised. The book now comprises more than 620 tables and 472 figures, including the structural formulae of around 1,100 food components. This standard text and reference is logically organized according to food constituents and commodities. It provides students and researchers in food science, food technology, agricultural chemistry and nutrition with the up-to-date information they require. The extensive tables for easy reference, the wealth of information, and the comprehensive subject index aid advanced students to acquire in-depth insight into food chemistry and technology and make this book also a valuable on-the-job reference for chemists, food chemists, food technologists, and more. Praise for the first edition: "Few books on food chemistry treat the subject as exhaustively researchers will find it to be a useful source of information. It is easy to read and the material is systematically presented." (JACS)

Modern flavours and fragrances are complex formulated products,containing blends of aroma compounds with auxiliary materials,enabling desirable flavours or fragrances to be added to a hugerange of products. From the identification and synthesis ofmaterials such as cinnamaldehyde and vanillin in the 19th Centuryto the current application of advanced analytical techniques foridentification of trace aroma compounds present in naturalmaterials, the flavour and fragrance industry has developed as akey part of the worldwide specialty chemicals industry. With contributions mainly coming from industry based experts,Chemistry & Technology of Flavours and Fragrancesprovides a detailed overview of the synthesis, chemistry andapplication technology of the major classes aroma compounds. Withseparate chapters covering important technical aspects such as thestability of aroma compounds, structure – odour relationshipsand identification of aroma compounds, this book will be essentialreading for both experienced and graduate level entrants to theflavour & fragrance industry.

Food may be nutritious, visually appealing and easy to prepare but if it does not possess desirable flavors, it will not be consumed. Food Flavors and Chemistry: Advances of the New Millennium primarily focuses on food flavors and their use in foods. Coverage also includes other important topics in food chemistry and production such as analytical methods, packaging, storage, safety and patents. Positive flavor notes are described, including ways of enhancing them in food. Conversely, methods for eliminating and reducing undesirable flavors are also proposed. Packaging aspects of foods, with respect to controlling sensory attributes, appearance and microbiological safety are discussed in detail. There is also a section concentrating on the most recent developments in dairy flavor chemistry. This book will be an important read for all postgraduate students, academics and industrial researchers wanting to keep abreast of food flavors and their chemistry.
