Overview

Gain new insights into cases, trends, and controversies in U.S. food regulation

Anyone who needs to understand the ins and outs of food regulation in the United States should turn to this book. With its modified case book approach, the book invigorates the topic of food law with discussions of emerging trends and controversies in food regulation complemented by case law studies that examine important legal issues. You not only explore regulations, but also food science, policy, and practice, which challenges you to move beyond pure legal theory into the application of theory.

Throughout the book, the focus is on the federal law, but state and international regulation is addressed as well. All the key topics in food regulation are covered in six sections:

  • Introduction to Food Regulation and What Is a Food

  • Regulation of Labeling and Claims

  • Food Safety Regulation

  • Specialized Food Regulation

  • Inspection and Enforcement

  • International Food Law and Ethics

As you progress through the book, you'll learn about the most important and urgent topics in food regulation, including food irradiation, dietary supplements, biotechnology and genetically engineered foods, and food terrorism. Discussion questions help you develop and explore multiple viewpoints on legal and public policy issues. Problem exercises encourage further critical thinking. A table of abbreviations at the end of the book lists and defines all the important acronyms that are essential for understanding U.S. food regulations.

This book is not only ideal for courses in food law and regulation, it is also recommended for food industry professionals, consultants, and regulators. Finally, international food companies that export to the United States will find this book tremendously helpful in complying with U.S. food regulation.
