Advances in Food Diagnostics
Advances in Food Diagnostics
Hardcover      ISBN: 0813822211
Food diagnostics is a relatively new and emerging area fuelled in large part by the ever-increasing demand for food safety. Advances in Food Diagnostics provides the most updated, comprehensive professional reference source available, covering sophisticated diagnostic technology for the food industry. Editors Nollet, Toldrá, and Hui and their broad team of international contributors address the most recent advances in food diagnostics through multiple approaches: reviewing novel technologies to evaluate fresh products; describing and analyzing in depth several specific modern diagnostics; providing an analysis of data processing; and discussing global marketing with an insight into future trends. While covering conventional (typically lab-based) methods of analysis, the book focuses on leading-edge technologies that are being or about to be introduced. The book looks at areas such as food quality assurance, safety and traceability. Issues such as improved quality control, monitoring pesticide and herbicide residues in food, determining the nutritional content of food and distinguishing between GM and "conventional" foodstuffs are covered. Advances in Food Diagnostics offers the food professional what its title promises – the latest advances in food diagnostics and analysis.

Advances in Postharvest Fruit and Vegetable Technology
Advances in Postharvest Fruit and Vegetable Technology
Hardcover      ISBN: 1482216965
Fruit and vegetable processing does not end at the time of harvest. Many new postharvest technologies are making produce reach the consumer more stable and at a higher quality. In this book contributing authors explore the new forms of technology that are being used to make agriculture systems more environmentally friendly and economically competitive. The authors focus on important drivers of change including public desire for more natural chemicals and fertilizers instead of synthetics and the use of omics, a tool for biomolecular research, to gather and understand vast amounts of data. Other topics addressed include improving old techniques and modeling large systems to better target solutions to specific problems. Annotation
The Agency of Eating: Mediation, Food and the Body
The Agency of Eating
Mediation, Food and the Body
Hardcover      ISBN: 1472598547
Deciding what to eat and how to eat it are two of the most basic acts of everyday life. Yet every choice also implies a value judgement: 'good' foods versus 'bad', 'proper' and 'improper' ways of eating, and 'healthy' and 'unhealthy' bodies. These food decisions are influenced by a range of social, political and economic bioauthorities, and mediated through the individual 'eating body'. This book is unique in the cultural politics of food in its exploration of a range of such bioauthorities and in its examination of the interplay between them and the individual eating body. No matter whether they are accepted or resisted, our eating practices and preferences are shaped by, and shape, these agencies. Abbots places the body, materiality and the non-human at the heart of her analysis, interrogating not only how the individual's embodied eating practices incorporate and reject the bioauthorities of food, but also how such authorities are created by the individual act of eating. Drawing on ethnographic case studies from across the globe, The Agency of Eating provides an important analysis of the power dynamics at play in the contemporary food system and the ways in which agency is expressed and bounded. This book will be of great benefit to any with an interest in food studies, anthropology, sociology and human geography.
