Description : In the period of about five years since the first edition of this book appeared, many changes have occurred in the fruit juice and beverage markets. The growth of markets has continued, blunted to some extent, no doubt, by the recession that has featured prominently in the economies of the major consuming nations. But perhaps the most significant area that has affected juices in particular is the issue of authenticity. Commercial scandals of substantial proportions have been seen on both sides of the Atlantic because of fraudulent practice. Major strides have been made in the development of techniques to detect and measure adulterants in the major juices. A contri bution to Chapter 1 describes one of the more important scientific techniques to have been developed as a routine test method to detect the addition of carbohydrates to juices. Another, and perhaps more welcome, development in non-carbonated beverages during the past few years is the rapid growth of sports drinks. Beverages based on glucose syrup have been popular for many years, and in some parts of the world isotonic products have long featured in the sports arena. A combination of benefits is now available from a wide range of preparations formulated and marketed as sports drinks and featuring widely in beverage markets world-wide. A new chapter reviews their formulation and performance characteristics. Another major trend in the area of fruit-containing non-carbonated bever ages is the highly successful marketing of ready-to-drink products.

Description : The alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages are being used by human being since centuries back. Accompanying the increase in the variety of consumption there has been a parallel increase in the variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages offered for sale. The alcoholic drinks market is broadly classified into five classes, starting from beers, wines, hard liquors, liqueurs and others. Similarly non alcoholic drinks market is broadly classified into carbonated drinks, non carbonated drinks and hot beverages. These include juices, energy drinks, carbonated drinks, tea, coffee and bottled water. The commercial success of a soft drink formulation depends upon a number of factors. A strong, well placed advertising campaign will bring the consumer to purchase the new product but, thereafter, the level of repeat sales will reflect the degree of enthusiasm with which the new drink has been received. The dramatic growth of fruit juice and non carbonated fruit beverage markets worldwide has been made possible by the development of new packs and packing systems and improvements in traditional packaging. Tropical fruits are the newest arrivals on the juice and fruit beverage market. Whisky is the portable spirit obtained by distillation of aqueous extract of an infusion of malted barley and other cereals that has been fermented. It can be considered as the product of distillation of an unhopped beer. Beer is the world most widely consumed alcoholic beverage; it is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. Rum is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane by products such as molasses, or directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The Indian alcoholic market has been growing rapidly for the last ten years, due to the positive impact of demographic trends and expected changes like rising income levels, changing age profile, changing lifestyles and reduction in beverages prices. Some of the fundamentals of the book are flavourings and emulsions, syrup room operation, fruit juices and comminuted bases, acids, colours, preservatives and other additives, high intensity sweeteners, packaging systems for fruit juices and non carbonated beverages, grape juice processing, processing of citrus juices, juice processing for pasteurized single strength, equipment for extraction and processing of soft and pome fruit juices, chemistry and technology of citrus juices and by products, legislation controlling production, labelling and marketing, biochemical events during brewing fermentations, outline of the whisky producing process, types of beer brewed, aroma compounds of rum and their formation, cider and perry etc.The alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages described in this book are beer, wine, rum, whisky, cider and different types of fruit juices with packaging systems and other relevant parameters related to their manufacturing. The book will be very helpful to technocrats, new entrepreneurs, research scholars and for those who are already in to this field.
Description : Soft drinks and fruit juices are produced in almost every country in the world and their availability is remarkable. From the largest cities to some of the remotest villages, soft drinks are available in a variety of flavours and packaging. Over the last decade, soft drinks and fruit juices have been the subject of criticism by the health community and there is considerable pressure on beverage manufacturers to reduce, or even remove, the sugar content of these products. Chemistry and Technology of Soft Drinks and Fruit Juices, Third Edition provides an overview of the chemistry and technology of soft drinks and fruit juices, covering ingredients, processing, microbiology, traceability and packaging as well as global market trends. This fully revised edition now includes chapters on topics that have become prominent in the industry since publication of the previous edition namely: water use and treatment, and microbiology technologies. The book is directed at graduates in food science, chemistry or microbiology entering production, quality control, new product development or marketing in the beverage industry or in companies supplying ingredients or packaging materials to the beverage industry.
Description : Written by an international panel of professional and academic peers, the book provides the engineer and technologist working in research, development and operations in the food industry with critical and readily accessible information on the art and science of infrared spectroscopy technology. The book should also serve as an essential reference source to undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers in universities and research institutions. Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy deals with the infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. It measure the absorption of different IR frequencies by a sample positioned in the path of an IR beam. Currently, infrared spectroscopy is one of the most common spectroscopic techniques used in the food industry. With the rapid development in infrared spectroscopic instrumentation software and hardware, the application of this technique has expanded into many areas of food research. It has become a powerful, fast, and non-destructive tool for food quality analysis and control. Infrared Spectroscopy for Food Quality Analysis and Control reflects this rapid technology development. The book is divided into two parts. Part I addresses principles and instruments, including theory, data treatment techniques, and infrared spectroscopy instruments. Part II covers the application of IRS in quality analysis and control for various foods including meat and meat products, fish and related products, and others. *Explores this rapidly developing, powerful and fast non-destructive tool for food quality analysis and control *Presented in two Parts -- Principles and Instruments, including theory, data treatment techniques, and instruments, and Application in Quality Analysis and Control for various foods making it valuable for understanding and application *Fills a need for a comprehensive resource on this area that includes coverage of NIR and MVA
Description : The Dictionary of Food Ingredients is a unique, easy-to-use source of infor mation on over 1,000 food ingredients. Like the previous editions, the new and updated Third Edition provides clear and concise information on currently used additives, including natural ingredients, FDA-approved artificial ingredients, and compounds used in food processing. The dictionary entries, organized in alphabetical order, include information on ingredient functions, chemical properties, and uses in food products. The updated and revised Third Edition contains approximately 1 SO new entries, and includes an updated and expanded bibliography. It also lists food ingredients ac cording to U. S. federal regulatory status. Users of the two previous editions have commented favorably on the dictionary's straightforward and clearly-written definitions, and we have endeavored to maintain that standard in this new edition. We trust it will continue to be a valuable reference for the food scientist, food processor, food product developer, nutritionist, extension specialist, and student. R S. Igoe Y. H.
