Emulsifiers are essential components of many industrial foodrecipes, whether they be added for the purpose of water/oilemulsification in its simplest form, for textural and organolepticmodification, for shelf life enhancement, or as complexing orstabilising agents for other components such as starch orprotein.


Each chapter in this volume considers one of the main chemicalgroups of food emulsifiers. Within each group the structures of theemulsifiers are considered, together with their modes of action.This is followed by a discussion of their production / extractionand physical characteristics, together with practical examples oftheir application. Appendices cross-reference emulsifier types withapplications, and give E-numbers, international names, synonyms andreferences to analytical standards and methods.

This is a book for food scientists and technologists,ingredients suppliers and quality assurance personnel.
