Principles of Food Chemistry

Springer, 9 feb 2018 - 607 pagina's
Completely revised, this new edition updates the chemical and physical properties of major food components including water, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, minerals vitamins and enzymes. Chapters on color, flavor and texture help the student understand key factors in the visual and organoleptic aspects of food. The chapter on contaminants and additives provides an updated view of their importance in food safety. Revised chapters on beer and wine production, and herbs and spices, provide the student with an understanding of the chemistry associated with these two areas which are growing rapidly in consumer interest. New to this edition is a chapter on the basics of GMOs. Each chapter contains new tables and illustrations, and an extensive bibliography, providing readers with ready access to relevant literature and links to the internet where appropriate. Just like its widely used predecessors, this new edition is valuable as a textbook and reference.

Chang Yong Lee received a B.S. in Chemistry from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, Korea and a PhD from Utah State University. He has been working as a faculty member at Cornell University since 1969. Professor Lee has been teaching food chemistry for a number of years in the Department of Food Science. His research interests have been on biochemical aspects of plant foods. Recently his laboratory has been working on bioactivity of phytochemicals that related to health benefits. He served as Chair of Department of Food Science and Technology and Co-director of Cornell Institute of Food Science (2002-2008). Dr. Lee has held visiting professor appointments at several institutions, including Korea Institute of Science and Technology; Inter-American Institute of Agricultural Science at EMBRAPA, Brazil; Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Avignon, France; Beijing Vegetable Research Center, China; Ecole Nationale Superieure des Industries Agricoles et Alimentaire, France; Graduate School of Biotechnology, Korea University; and Kyung Hee University, Korea.

Professor Lee has authored more than 300 research articles. He was a recipient of Platinum Award on his edited books on polyphenols from American Chemical Society’s Division of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry and the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) acknowledged Professor Lee as one of the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) in 2004. Thomson Reuters selected him as one of 112 scientists in the world in the field of Agricultural Science during 2002-2012 who published the greatest number of highly cited papers ranked in the top 1% by citations. Again in 2015, Thomson Reuters listed Lee as one of the World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds in Agricultural Science. Professor Lee was awarded USDA Secretary’s Honor Award for Excellence in Research in 2001 and 2004, and Babcock-Hart Award from International Life Science Institute and Institute of Food Technologists in 2003. He is elected Fellow of American Chemical Society’s Division of Agriculture and Food Chemistry (1991), the Institute of Food Technologists (1996), the Korean Academy of Science and Technology (1998), and International Academy of Food Science and Technology (2006). He was appointed as International Scholar (2011-2014) at Kyung Hee University in Korea and recently (2014-present) he has been serving as Adjunct Distinguished Professor at King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia.
