MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

The rapidly expanding field of food safety includes many new developments in the understanding of the entire range of toxic compounds found in foods - whether naturally occurring or having been introduced by industry or food processing methods. This second edition of "Introduction to Food Toxicology" explores these developments while continuing to provide a core understanding of the basic principles of food toxicology.
"Introduction to Food Toxicology, 2nd Edition" includes new and updated coverage of key topics including the circulatory systems and their influence on toxicity, molecular mechanisms of absorption and excretion, the multiplicity and specificity of phase I and II reactions, toxins from marine food sources including the growing number of toxins from symbiotic bacteria, algae and plankton, and focus on the occurrence and modes of action of the central mycotoxins and information on emerging problems, including fumonisins, regulations, including the Food Quality Control Act, solid-pfase extraction, immuno assay, and LC/MS, mechanisms of regulation of xenobiotic activation and deactivation, and developments in the modes of action and impact of natural toxins in food plants. This title also features a comprehensive review of the issues surrounding dioxins, the function of antioxidants and their toxicological aspects, acrylamide, its occurrence, toxicity and regulation on its use, phytochemicals, and their beneficial effects and the modes of action of this growing group of nutraceuticals from food plants and diet and drug interactions.
