Editorial Reviews

From a December 1995 international symposium in balmy Honolulu, 22 papers examine the behavior of macromolecule food components, such as the proteins and polysaccharides, that greatly influence the texture of food. They consider the methods and results of studying general structural and functional properties with Raman spectroscopy, nonlinear regression, and dynamic-light-scattering and electron microscopy; gel and film formation such as heat- induced ovalbumin gels and the heat-induced gelation of whey proteins; emulsion from such perspectives as the effects of high pressure on interactions between proteins and polysaccharides; and chemical, enzymatic, and genetic modifications including glycosylated lysozymes with novel functional properties, and the microbial protein cross-linking enzyme transglutaminase.
