Providing up-to-date information on potential fat substitutes, including protein-based, carbohydrate-based, and lipid-based substitutes, this unique reference/text focuses on the benefits of carbohydrate polyesters and the various methods available for their production, isolation, analysis, and purification - highlighting regulatory aspects, potential applications, and the applicable patent literature.
Discussing both the physical and chemical properties of carbohydrate fatty acid polyesters, Carbohydrate Polyesters as Fat Substitutes details the history of carbohydrate polyesters ... describes the metabolism of fat substitutes and its effect on cholesterol metabolism ... explains the nomenclature necessary to distinguish between the smaller esters and the larger esters of carbohydrates ... investigates the possibility of using enzymes to synthesize carbohydrate esters ... examines the emulsification, antimicrobial, and baking properties of smaller esters of carbohydrates ... and more.
Furnishing over 575 key references and more than 100 helpful tables, drawings, photographs, and equations, Carbohydrate Polyesters as Fat Substitutes is an invaluable reference for food scientists, food technologists, nutritionists, dietitians, pharmacologists, toxicologists, chemical engineers, agricultural scientists, food biochemists, microbiologists, organic and cereal chemists, and animal and dairy scientists, as well as an essential text for upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
