Overview

Foods: Experimental Perspectives / Edition 7

Foods: Experimental Perspectives, Seventh Edition will help students pursuing food-related careers broaden and deepen their scientific knowledge of food and its safe preparation. It clearly explains food science’s foundational principles and most important emerging technologies.

Next, it discusses food’s physical aspects and preparation, and thoroughly explains carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. Finally, it presents up-to-date coverage of food safety, preservation, and additives. Learning is promoted through “Food for Thought” boxes, photos, objectives, margin notes, definitions, charts, web links, and study questions.
