Book Description

For food scientists, high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is a powerful tool for product composition testing and assuring product quality. Since the last edition of this volume was published, great strides have been made in HPLC analysis techniques—with particular attention given to miniaturization, automatization, and green chemistry. Thoroughly updated and revised, Food Analysis by HPLC, Third Edition offers practical and immediately applicable information on all major topics of food components analyzable by HPLC.

Maintaining the rigorous standards that made the previous editions so successful and lauded by food scientists worldwide, this third edition examines:

  • Recent trends in HPLC
  • HPLC separation techniques for amino acids, peptides, proteins, neutral lipids, phospholipids, carbohydrates, alcohols, vitamins, and organic acids
  • HPLC analysis techniques for sweeteners, colorants, preservatives, and antioxidants
  • HPLC determinations of residues of mycotoxins, antimicrobials, carbamates, organochlorines, organophosphates, herbicides, fungicides, and nitrosamines
  • HPLC determinations of residues of growth promoters, endocrine disrupting chemicals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, and dioxins
  • HPLC applications for the analysis of phenolic compounds, anthocyanins, betalains, organic bases, anions, and cations

Presenting specific and practical applications to food chemistry, the contributors provide detailed and systematic instructions on sample preparation and separation conditions. The book is an essential reference for those in the fields of chromatography, analytical chemistry, and, especially, food chemistry and food technology.

Reviews

“...should be included in all laboratory libraries where food analysis is carried out either on a routine quality control basis or for method and product development. . ..an essential source."
—Bioseparation
". . .excellent coverage [of] HPLC analysis of foods and is recommended for beginning and experienced food analysts. . ..gives comprehensive coverage to nearly all categories of food components that have been analyzed by HPLC, including peptides, carbohydrates, vitamins, and food additives. . ..authors are from a variety of affiliations and international locations. . . providing diversity in perspective and coverage. . . .[a] complete treatment of HPLC as it applies to foods. It is a valuable reference book, not just for chromatography, but for food analysis and food chemistry in general."
—Food Technology
"...uniformly well-written and the overall editing is excellent....focused and comprehensive. The book has a 'cookbook' flavor and should interest food scientists or engineers working in quality control or in research and development. Methods are clearly explained, a detail which should appeal to both beginning and experienced analytical chemists....a very useful addition to the library of any scientist involved in the analysis of food or food products or as a reference text for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in the fields of food chemistry, biochemistry or processing."
