Deep knowledge of the chemical composition, nutrients, physical properties, toxicology, and microbiological composition of food allows for the production of safe, high-quality foods. This knowledge is fundamental when producing, preserving, manipulating, and distributing food substances, especially to reduce the risks to consumer health. The full extent of the effects on the composition of foods treated by new technologies is still unknown and it must be considered to guarantee that food is produced safely. Descriptive Food Science gives an in-depth insight into this field. Section 1 focuses on the quality of various foods and Section 2 centers on how different technological treatments affect the quality of food.

The recording and analysis of food data are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Consequently, the food scientist inindustry or at study faces the task of using and understandingstatistical methods. Statistics is often viewed as a difficultsubject and is often avoided because of its complexity and a lackof specific application to the requirements of food science. Thissituation is changing – there is now much material onmultivariate applications for the more advanced reader, but a caseexists for a univariate approach aimed at thenon-statistician. This second edition of Statistical Methods for Food Scienceprovides a source text on accessible statistical procedures for thefood scientist, and is aimed at professionals and students in foodlaboratories where analytical, instrumental and sensory data aregathered and require some form of summary and analysis beforeinterpretation. It is suitable for the food analyst, the sensoryscientist and the product developer, and others who work infood-related disciplines involving consumer survey investigationswill also find many sections of use.
