About this book
Exceptionally comprehensive both in its detailing of methods and the range of products covered, this handbook describes the gamut of analytical tools and methods available to dairy producers, researchers, and inspectors. It includes tools for analyzing chemical and biochemical compounds as well as bioactive peptides, prebiotics, and probiotics. It also discusses noninvasive chemical and physical sensors and starter cultures used in quality control.
The book also covers current methods for the detection of microorganisms, allergens, and other adulterations, including those of environmental origin or introduced during processing. Other methodologies used to evaluate color, texture, and flavor are also discussed.
