This comprehensive reference provides state-of-the-art information on the various analytical procedures involved in both nutrition labeling and the identification and quantitation of hazardous contaminants in foods - proposing novel techniques to mitigate critical inadequacies in the methods for nutrition labeling endorsed by the Association of Official Analytical Chemists.
Covering all mandatory dietary components - as well as many optional nutrients - specified by the new labeling regulations of the Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service, Analyzing Food for Nutrition Labeling and Hazardous Contaminants details the analysis of saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids by gas chromatography ... reviews available approaches for mycotoxin analysis ... summarizes the development of fiber analysis and the regulations in the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act regarding dietary fiber ... discusses vitamin analysis as it relates to nutrition labeling ... examines techniques developed for the analysis of naturally occurring toxins in food ... presents an overview of analytical methods for the major classes of pesticide residues ... focuses on the primary classes of toxins formed as the result of normal food processing and preparation ... and more.
