Overview


At one time, sweetener discovery was largely a matter of chance. Now it is possible to design and synthesize new sweet compounds based on the studies of structure-taste relationships, computer modeling, and biochemical chemoreception mechanisms. This new volume presents the latest results of such studies and defines the status of methodology to design sweeteners, the evaluation of sweeteners' sensory properties, the mechanism of action of sweeteners, and legislation for the regulation of sweeteners. In addition, this volume presents, for the first time outside of the patent literature, discussions of three major new structural classes of sweeteners: arylurea dipeptides, guanidineacetic acids, and substituted *b-amino acid.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on a symposium at the 199th national ACS meeting, Boston, April 1990. The search continues for the full sucrose-taste experience without the calories. The contributions cover structure-taste studies of peptides, proteins, and other natural products, as well as many synthetic sweeteners; experimental and computation approaches to the study of sweeteners and receptors; and mechanisms of sweet taste perception.
