The second edition of this successful book highlights thewidespread use of enzymes in food processing improvement andinnovation, explaining how they bring advantages. The properties ofdifferent enzymes are linked to the physical and biochemical eventsthat they influence in food materials and products, while these inturn are related to the key organoleptic, sensory and shelf lifequalities of foods. Fully updated to reflect advances made in the field over recentyears, new chapters in the second edition look at the use ofenzymes in the reduction of acrylamide, in fish processing and innon-bread cereal applications such as flour confectionery. Geneticmodification of source organisms (GMO) has been used to improveyields of purer enzymes for some time now but the newer technologyof protein engineering (PE) of enzymes has the potential to producepurer, more targeted products without unwanted side activities, anda chapter is also included on this important new topic. Authorshave been selected not only for their practical working knowledgeof enzymes but also for their infectious enthusiasm for thesubject. The book is aimed at food scientists and technologists,ingredients suppliers, geneticists, analytical chemists and qualityassurance personnel.

R. S. SHALLENBERGER Cornell University, New York State Agricultural Research Station, New York, USA Among the material to be discussed in this first section of the 'Enzymes and Food Processing Symposium' is subject matter that can be viewed as a marriage between enzyme technology and sugar stereochemistry. In order to bring the significance of the material to be presented into proper perspective, I would like you to pretend, for a moment, that you are a researcher making a proposal on this subject to a Research Granting Agency in order to obtain financial support for your ideas. However, the year is 1880. Under the 'objectives' section of your proposal, you state that you intend to attach the intangible vital force or spirit-that is, the catalyst unique to the chemistry of living organisms-to an inert substrate such as sand. Thereafter you will pass a solution of right handed glucose (also known as starch sugar) past the 'vital force' and in the process convert it to left-handed glucose (also known as fruit sugar). The peer review committee would probably reject the proposal as sheer nonsense because the statements made were not only contrary to their experience, but also contrary to what they had been taught. Perhaps a few select people would have some feeling for what you were talking about, but commiseration would be the only form of support that they could offer.

Recent years have seen a rapid increase in the use of enzymes as food processing tools, as an understanding of their means of control has improved. Since publication of the first edition of this book many new products have been commercially produced and the corresponding number of published papers has swollen. This second edition has been fully revised and updated to cover changes in the last five years. It continues to provide food technologists, chemists, biochemists and microbiologists with an authoritative, practical and detailed review of the subject.

In the past 35 years, the use of commercial enzymes has grown from an insignificant role in the food industry to an important aspect of food processing. This Third Edition of Enzymes in Food Processing explores recent and extensive changes in the use of enzymes as well as the discovery of new enzymes and their uses. Included in the book is a history of the role of enzymes in food processing, enzyme characterization, a discussion of different classes of enzymes including lipases and proteases, commercial enzyme production, and the processing of particular foods such as meat, vegetables, fruit, baked goods, milk products, and beer. Unlike earlier editions, it provides basic information on enzymes and their uses not adequately described in the current literature. Food technologists will find in this edition a description of the properties of those enzymes that are important in food processing, as well as a description of the properties of those enzymes that are important in food processing, as well as a description of the many applications of enzymes in the foods processing industry. The book is intended for food technologists, and will be of value to the microbiologist and enzyme chemist as well. This treatise provides a comprehensive treatment of enzymes used in food processing. Covers genetic modification of enzymes in the food industry Discuss enzyme function and dependence on environmental parameters Explores practical applications of food enzymes in industry

Enzymes in Food Processing, Second Edition provides an understanding of the action of enzymes and the changes in enzyme technology. This book discusses the introduction of enzyme processes into the food industry. Organized into 20 chapters, this edition starts with an overview of the practical application of enzymes to the manufacture and processing of foods, such as the use of enzymes to clarify wine, produce dextrose, tenderize meat, and liquefy candy centers. This book then discusses the variables that affect all enzymes, which include moisture content, temperature, and pH. This text examines as well the different characteristics of competitive and noncompetitive inhibitions. Other chapters focus on the properties and actions of carbohydrases, which cause the chemical bonds to unite simple sugars into the polymeric saccharides. The final chapter deals with the allergic reactions that commercial enzymes may cause to humans. Microbiologists, food technologists, nutritionists, and food scientists will find this book extremely useful.

Enzymes in Food Processing describes the properties and practical applications of enzymes in food processing. This 20-chapter book includes applications such as the use of enzymes to tenderize meat, to produce dextrose, to clarify wine, to liquefy candy centers. The first part of this text is an introduction to the chemistry and kinetics of enzyme reactions. Chapters 2 to 5 describe the general nature of enzyme reactions, reaction rates, and the effect of pH and temperature, as well as the effect of inhibitors and activators on enzyme reactions. Chapters 6 to 9 examine specific enzymes, including the carbohydrases, proteases, lipases, and oxidoreductases, while Chapter 10 presents the methods of enzyme production. Considerable chapters are devoted to the application of enzymes in food processing. The chapters are arranged according to commodities, such as milling, baking, starch, dairy products, fruits, fruit products, wines, distilled alcoholic beverages, confectionary, and flavors. Chapter 19 and 20 includes a brief description of the closely related use of enzymes in feeds and as digestive aids, as well as the health and legal aspects of the use of enzymes. Food technologists, microbiologists, and enzyme chemists will find this book invaluable.

Much has been written about immobilized enzymes during this period of time. So much, in fact, that it can become difficult even for those involved in developing new enzymatic food processing operations to bridge the gap between the field of immobilized enzymes and their specific requirements. It is the purpose of this book to assist those engaged in this difficult task. It is also a goal to bring to the researcher in enzyme immobilization an appreciation for the requirements of the food processing industry.
