About this Book

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.
