The second edition of this successful book highlights the widespread use of enzymes in food processing improvement and innovation, explaining how they bring advantages. The properties of different enzymes are linked to the physical and biochemical events that they influence in food materials and products, while these in turn are related to the key organoleptic, sensory and shelf life qualities of foods. Fully updated to reflect advances made in the field over recent years, new chapters in the second edition look at the use of enzymes in the reduction of acrylamide, in fish processing and in non-bread cereal applications such as flour confectionery. Genetic modification of source organisms (GMO) has been used to improve yields of purer enzymes for some time now but the newer technology of protein engineering (PE) of enzymes has the potential to produce purer, more targeted products without unwanted side activities, and a chapter is also included on this important new topic. Authors have been selected not only for their practical working knowledge of enzymes but also for their infectious enthusiasm for the subject. The book is aimed at food scientists and technologists, ingredients suppliers, geneticists, analytical chemists and quality assurance personnel.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
No longer are enzymes to be considered merely functional catalytic proteins, but recognized as useful and targeted workers that have preferred working conditions, can be trained (cultured) to carry out very specific tasks, and cannot function when their food (substrate) runs out. Specialists in using enzyme technology in the food and drink industry explain the basics to those who are not. Nomenclature, nature and mode of action, the basic theory and practical applications of exogenous enzymes in food and drink technology, how enzymes improve raw materials and influence and modify the biochemical and physical events known as food processing, methods of culturing and manufacturing enzymes in commercial quantities, and the role of genetic engineering are the main themes.
