The creation of plant-based foods is one of the most rapidly advancing areas in the modern food industry. Many consumers are adopting more plant-based foods in their diets because of concerns about global warming and its devastating impacts on the environment and biodiversity. In addition, consumers are adopting plant-based diets for ethical and health reasons. As a result, many food companies are developing plant-based analogs of animal-based foods like dairy, egg, meat, and seafood products. This is extremely challenging because of the complex structure and composition of these animal-based foods.Next-Generation Plant-based Foods: Design, Production and Properties presents the science and technology behind the design, production, and utilization of plant-based foods. Readers will find a review of ingredients, processing operations, nutrition, quality attributes, and specific plant-based food categories such as milk and dairy products, egg and egg products, meat and seafood products, providing the fundamental knowledge required to create the next generation of healthier and more sustainable plant-based food alternatives.
Nanotechnology is increasingly being utilized within the food industry to create innovative products with new or improved properties. This book introduces the history of nanotechnology applications in the food industry. It then discusses the key physicochemical and structural characteristics of the different kinds of nanoparticles found in foods, as well as showing how these characteristics lead to their unique functional attributes. Applications of nanotechnology in the food and agricultural industries are then covered, including the creation of nanopesticides, nanofertilizers, nutrient delivery systems, functional ingredients, smart packaging materials, nanofilters, and sensors, as well as for the conversion of waste materials into value-added products. Finally, the potential toxicity of both organic and inorganic nanoparticles found in foods is critically assessed. The author is a Distinguished Professor of food science who uses physics, chemistry, and biology to improve the quality, safety, and healthiness of foods. He has published over 1200 scientific articles and 13 books in this area and is currently the most highly cited food scientist in the world. He has won numerous awards for his scientific achievements. The aim of this book is to provide scientists and technologists with an understanding of the basic principles of nanotechnology and how they can be used in the food and agricultural industry to improve the quality, sustainability, safety, and healthiness of our foods.
The aim of this book is to highlight the many exciting advances being made in the science of foods, and to show their application for solving important problems related to the modern food supply, such as tackling chronic diseases, feeding a global population, reducing food waste, and creating healthier and tastier foods.
