Front Cover

 It is the first edition of SCIENCE AND EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE for food world. It gives me great pleasure in bringing out book entitled “ADVANCES IN FOOD SCIENCE AND NUTRITION” for the student of Food Technology, Food Nutrition and all those aspirants who desire to brighten their career in the field of food technology.

Our goal is to provide readers with introductory foundation to budding food professionals. I was also well aware that the book is widely used as a basic reference outside the academic environment. I have attempted to take utmost care to cover the particular topic with latest research updates. In this concern I had compiled all the newer areas of food science and nutrition with the older existing knowledge. I also hope to provide insight into the scope of food science for people considering food science as a career. The book chapters introduces and complex interrelationship among food functional properties, processing, distribution and storage. Every chapter has been extensively appropriate and justified with suitable diagrams and tables. Multicolor picture have been also added to enhance the content value and to give the students an idea of what he will be dealing in reality, and to bridge the gap between theory

and practice. I am indebted to Mr. Abulude, F.O. President/CEO, Science and Education Development Institute (SEDInst), AKURE, ONDO STATE, NIGERIA for giving an opportunity for this book project, also Mr. Adeyemi Adewale for editing the book. Relevant information on food sector has also been given. Moreover at the end of text Appendices have been given through which the readers can be benefitted. We are confident that this edition will again receive your overwhelming response.

Chapter 1

It contains an introduction to general aspects which covers the chemical properties for food, nutritional properties of proteins and functional properties of foods. It covers some factors that affect the functionality of protein. The paper discusses the importance of these functions when preparing food formulations.

Chapter 2

This chapter is mainly focused on pasting properties of starch. It includes determining its applications in food processing and other industries. Details of the RVA as tool for obtaining information related to apparent viscosity. Pasting properties have been used to predict the end use quality of various products.

Chapter 3

Chapter includes the details of various types of phenolic compounds, extraction, significance and antioxidative action of phenolic compounds. This topic based on natural phenolic compounds with antioxidant activity such as grape seed extract, rosemary extract, tea, catechin and tannins etc. The main purpose of using an antioxidant as a food additive is to maintain the quality of that food and to extend its shelf life rather than improving the quality of the food.

Chapter 4

The chapter includes basic information on edible film-coating formulation, Specific requirements, properties, methods of application to food surfaces. Topic will also give information about the advantages and disadvantages of edible film.

Chapter 5

The chapter has more focus on carrot production, cultivation, harvesting and post harvest management. It gives information about nutritional significance and changes occur during storage.

Chapter 6

The chapter gives more information about the application of integrated nutrigenomics approach in nutritional sciences. It also emphasized for accelerated implementation of mechanistic knowledge in food design. It gives an application and modification approaches of proteomic to analyze the complexity of food protein modification in the area of general food science and

quality assurance.

Chapter 7

The topic includes the details of coping difficult conditions in the Sahel by mobile pastoralist communities in the Lake Chad area. It gives the basic recommendations for Food Insecurity in Africa and particularly in Sahel area.

Chapter 8

The topic concludes spirulina share his remarkable qualities, ease of culture and safety can be an effective and lasting solution to the problems of malnutrition. It gives the details of the pilot project for the development of industry of “Dihe”.

Chapter 9

The chapter includes raw materials, process, packaging, PFA specification, types, and health benefits of Pickles. It gives an idea to overcome protein based malnutrition by providing nutrient security by means of pickle.
