Chemical Deterioration and Physical Instability of Food and by Leif H Skibsted, Jens Risbo, Mogens L Andersen

By Leif H Skibsted, Jens Risbo, Mogens L Andersen

For a nutrients product to be successful available on the market it needs to be sturdy all through its shelf-life. caliber deterioration as a result of chemical alterations and adjustments in situation because of actual instability usually are not consistently acknowledged, but could be simply as challenging as microbial spoilage. This publication offers an authoritative overview of key subject matters during this area.

Chapters partly one specialise in the chemical reactions that could negatively have an effect on nutrients caliber, akin to oxidative rancidity, and their size. half reports caliber deterioration linked to actual alterations, corresponding to moisture loss, achieve and migration, crystallization and emulsion breakdown. Contributions within the following part define the most probably results on diverse meals and drinks, together with bakery items, fruit and greens, ready-to-eat foodstuff and wine.

With contributions from leaders of their fields, Chemical deterioration and actual instability of nutrients and drinks is a vital reference for R&D and QA employees within the nutrition and researchers with an drawn to this subject.

  • Examines chemical reactions that can negatively have an effect on nutrition caliber and measurement
  • Reviews caliber deterioration linked to actual alterations resembling moisture loss, achieve and migration, and crystallization
  • Documents deterioration in particular foodstuff and beverage items together with bakery items, frozen meals and wine

Example text

The distribution of lipids can change with changes in the physical structure of the food, which, in turn, is dependent on the molecular mobility of the food components. This molecular mobility is a function of the nature, composition and state of the food and is also affected by temperature and water activity. As an example, it is known that an increase in molecular mobility as a consequence of temperature or water activity results in the crystallization of lactose in milk powder and other foodstuffs.

Thereby, these are known as chain-breaking antioxidants. Their principal consequence consists of extending the length of the induction period. Other examples of protective mechanisms attributed to minor components of the oil or food additives are chelation of metals (polyphenols, © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2010 14 Chemical deterioration and physical instability of food and beverages citric acid), reduction of hydroperoxides (vitamin C), oxygen consumption, deactivation of singlet oxygen, and regeneration of chain-breaking antioxidants (Frankel, 2005).
