Advances in Food Biochemistry by Fatih Yildiz

By Fatih Yildiz

Understanding the biochemistry of foodstuff is simple to all different examine and improvement within the fields of nutrition technological know-how, know-how, and foodstuff, and the previous decade has visible speeded up growth in those parts. Advances in nutrients Biochemistry offers a unified exploration of meals from a biochemical viewpoint. that includes illustrations to clarify molecular strategies in the course of the textual content, this quantity examines more than a few concerns at the foodstuff spectrum, including:

  • water and its relation to food
  • the glycobiology of meals components
  • enzymes
  • plant, animal, and human hormones
  • functional meals, herbs, and nutritional supplements
  • flavor compounds in foods
  • organic acids
  • interactions among the surroundings with nutrients components
  • biological and lipid oxidation in foods
  • food safety
  • nutrition and the genetic make-up of person foodstuff components

Dr. Fatih Yildiz has released an intensive physique of study and has labored on nutrition and nutrients technology tasks with the FAO, UNIDO, UNICEF, and NATO. lately he bought the Ambassador for Turkey Award from the eu Federation of meals technological know-how and know-how. Dr. Yildiz and the participants to this quantity have introduced jointly their a long time of expertise and services to supply a top-notch source for meals technology and coverage pros and complicated scholars at the leading edge of foodstuff research.
