Summary

A comprehensive examination of the chemistry of food toxicants produced during processing, formulation, and storage of food, Food Safety Chemistry: Toxicant Occurrence, Analysis and Mitigation provides the information you need to develop practical approaches to control and reduce contaminant levels in food products and food ingredients, including cooking oils. It discusses each major food chemical contaminant, examining toxic effects and the biological mechanisms behind their toxicity.

The book supplies an understanding of the chemical and biochemical mechanisms involved in the formation of certain food contaminants through a systematic review of the appearances of these foodborne chemical toxins as well as the chemical and biochemical mechanisms involved in their formations during food processing and storage. It also details their absorption and distribution profiles and the factors influencing their levels in foods. It includes updated analytical techniques for food quality control, other research efforts on these chemicals, and their regulatory-related concerns and suggestions.

Edited by experts in the field, this guide includes a listing of commonly used analytical techniques in food safety and a summary of current research findings related to food chemical contaminants. The book’s updated information on potential adverse effects on human health and focus on analytical techniques for food safety analysis and quality control makes it a reference that will spend more time in your hands than on your bookshelf.
