An Introduction to the Physical Chemistry of Food (Food by John N. Coupland

By John N. Coupland

Familiar combos of elements and processing make the constructions that supply foodstuff its homes. for instance in ice cream, the emulsifiers and proteins stabilize partially crystalline milk fats as an emulsion, freezing (crystallization) of a few of the water offers the product its hardness and polysaccharide stabilizers retain it tender. Why assorted recipes paintings as they do is basically ruled through the foundations of actual chemistry.

This textbook introduces the actual chemistry necessary to knowing the habit of meals. beginning with the easiest version of molecules attracting and repelling each other whereas being moved through the randomizing impact of warmth, the legislation of thermodynamics are used to derive very important houses of meals reminiscent of style binding and water job. such a lot meals include a number of stages and an analogous molecular version is used to appreciate section diagrams, section separation and the houses of surfaces. the rest chapters concentrate on the formation and houses of particular buildings in meals – crystals, polymers, dispersions and gels.

Only a simple knowing of nutrition technological know-how is required, and no arithmetic or chemistry past the introductory collage classes is needed. in any respect phases, examples from the first literature are used to demonstrate the textual content and to spotlight the sensible functions of actual chemistry in nutrients science.
