Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Describes 13 methods for analyzing food proteins assays that fall under the categories of copper binding methods, dye binding methods, immunological methods for protein speciation, and protein nutrient value. Written by a professor at Pennsylvania State University, the handbook outlines the principles behind each method, calibration graphs, interference compounds, sample pre-treatment, performance characteristics, and primary applications. Topics include the Lowry method, the Bradford method, speciation of soya protein by enzyme- linked immunoassay, determination of trace protein allergens in food, and protein digestibility-corrected amino acid scores.
