An Introduction to Tropical Food Science

This product is not available in the selected currency.


This introduction to tropical food science is meant for two groups of people. First, there are those living in the tropics who require a simple introductory text. Food science is perhaps the most important science affecting their lives. The second group consists of students, administrators and workers in industry and research in temperate zones, who are concerned with food problems but who have no first-hand knowledge of the tropics. The text provides a concise and accessible guide to all the major elements of the subject, including the nutritional value of tropical foodstuffs, its digestion, and the preparation and preservation of food. The author has taken care to avoid the use of jargon and the text is supplemented by many useful explanatory illustrations. The volume is suitable for first-year food science students at universities, polytechnics and colleges; graduate students taking conversion courses in food science; administrators, practitioners and students of food science in the tropics.
