Beverages provides integrated coverage in a user-friendly way, and is the second of an important series dealing with major food product groups. This book includes details of all the major beverages (except milk which is covered in volume one of this series), each chapter being devoted to a major beverage type. The approach to each chapter is similar, discussing first the manufacturing technology, set in the context of the underlying chemistry and microbiology. Particular attention is paid to the chemistry of compounds responsible for imparting organoleptic properties. Pharmacological properties of constituents such as caffeine are also examined. This book is structured in a user-friendly way, including summary points, control points, information boxes and excercises, permitting use by readers at various levels. The book should be of use to undergraduates on food studies, applied biology and food science and technology courses.
