Descripció

In the last decade, there has been substantial research dedicated towards prospecting physiochemical, nutritional and health properties of novel protein sources. In addition to being driven by predictions of increased population and lack of a parallel increase in traditional protein sources, main drivers for the rise in novel proteins/ novel foods research activities is linked to significant changes in young consumers' attitudes toward red meat consumption and their interest in new alternative protein products.

Alternative Proteins: Safety and Food Security Considerations presents up-to-date information on alternative proteins from non-meat sources and examines their nutritional and functional roles as food sources and ingredients. Emphasis is placed on the safety of these novel proteins and an evaluation of their potential contribution to food security. Motivations for novel proteins and restrictions for their use are also discussed.

Key Features:

  • Explains potential improvements to alternative proteins through the employment of novel processing techniques.
  • Contains the first review on keratin as an alternative protein source.
  • Explores first comprehensive evaluation of the religious aspects of novel proteins.
  • Describes methods for the detection and evaluation of health hazards.
  • Discusses guidelines, regulatory issues and recommendations for food safety

Additionally, this book covers fundamental and recent developments in the production of alternative proteins, and examines safety and consumer acceptability wherever information is available. The sources and processing options for alternative proteins and their impact on final product characteristics are also covered. A collective contribution from international researchers who are active in their field of research and have made significant contributions to the the food sciences, this book is beneficial to any researcher interested in the the food science and safety of alternative proteins.
