It makes use of biological and physical sciences as well as engineering to study the principles behind food processing, the causes of deterioration and the nature of foods. There are various fields which contribute knowledge to food science such as physiology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics and microbiology. Food chemistry, food engineering, food microbiology and food preservation are some of the sub-disciplines of this field. Food chemistry studies the various chemical activities and interactions which take place between the varied non-biological and biological constituents of food. This book provides comprehensive insights into the field of nutrition and food science. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe.
