With the world’s growing population, the provision of a safe, nutritious and wholesome food supply for all has become a major challenge. To achieve this, effective risk management based on sound science and unbiased information is required by all stakeholders, including the food industry, governments and consumers themselves. In addition, the globalization of the food supply requires the harmonization of policies and standards based on a common understanding of food safety among authorities in countries around the world. With some 280 chapters, the Encyclopedia of Food Safety provides unbiased and concise overviews which form in total a comprehensive coverage of a broad range of food safety topics, which may be grouped under the following general categories: History and basic sciences that support food safety; Foodborne diseases, including surveillance and investigation; Foodborne hazards, including microbiological and chemical agents; Substances added to food, both directly and indirectly; Food technologies, including the latest developments; Food commodities, including their potential hazards and controls; Food safety management systems, including their elements and the roles of stakeholders. The Encyclopedia provides a platform for experts from the field of food safety and related fields, such as nutrition, food science and technology and environment to share and learn from state-of-the art expertise with the rest of the food safety community. Assembled with the objective of facilitating the work of those working in the field of food safety and related fields, such as nutrition, food science and technology and environment - this work covers the entire spectrum of food safety topics into one comprehensive reference work The Editors have made every effort to ensure that this work meets strict quality and pedagogical thresholds such as: contributions by the foremost authorities in their fields; unbiased and concise overviews on a multitude of food safety subjects; references for further information, and specialized and general definitions for food safety terminology In maintaining confidence in the safety of the food supply, sound scientific information is key to effectively and efficiently assessing, managing and communicating on food safety risks. Yet, professionals and other specialists working in this multidisciplinary field are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with developments outside their immediate areas of expertise. This single source of concise, reliable and authoritative information on food safety has, more than ever, become a necessity

Now, more than ever, foods come packaged in containers designed for direct cooking or heating, which often causes the movement of substances - indirect additives - into foods. Because of their unique characteristics, plastics or polymeric materials (PM) have become the most important packaging material for food products. The safety assessment of pl

Australia today is facing a health crisis such as we have never seen before. Rates of cancer, obesity, diabetes, asthma, ADHD and behavioural disorders in our children are all alarmingly high. What is happening and what can we do to safeguard our own health and the health of our children? Our diets must be part of the problem and fixing our diets must be a large part of the solution. The use of food additives in our everyday foods has increased so rapidly over the past 50 years that it is getting difficult to find foods which are additive free. Although most food additives are safe, there are many which are known to be harmful. Additive Alert will tell you quickly and easily which ones you need to avoid and why.

Food additives have been used since the beginning of time to enhance the quality and quantity of food products. We know from historical research that alcohol, vinegar, oils, and spices were used more than 10,000 years ago to preserve foods. The incorporation of various additives to human food has never ceased. Additives have been used and continue to be used to perform various functions from enhancing the flavor to increasing the shelf-life of the food. Until the time of the Industrial Revolution, the above-mentioned ingredients and a limited number of other ingredients were the major food additives used. However, the Industrial Revolution brought about advances in machinery development and changes in technology. Food production, especially grain, increased at a hectic pace and new food additives were developed. Fast forward to current times; knowledge regarding food additives, how they are prepared, their composition, and how they work has become very important to those in the food industry and health conscious consumers. Regulating Food Additives: The Good, Bad, and the Ugly addresses both the importance and the dangers of food additives. It discusses how food additives are prepared, what they are composed of, and why we need to be concerned about them. In addition, this book provides a timeline of laws regulating food in U.S. history such as the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) passed in 1938 and the Food Additives Amendment to that Act passed in 1958.

This book provides a broad overview of the chemicals in food that have the potential to induce adverse health effects. Nutritional Toxicology is an interaction of nutrition, toxicology, biochemistry and food science, etc. Its main research scope involves the effects of nutrients on metabolisms of toxicants and their mechanisms, the interaction of the toxicants and contaminants originated from diet with nutrients and nutrition process, the adverse health outcome of nutrients excess, as well as methodology of research and related food and nutrition regulation process. Also the risk assessment of toxicants and contaminants in foods, and risk benefit assessment of nutrients (dietary supplementation) has become an emerging topic. This book provides novel and provocative insights into the fields of nutrition, food science and toxicology. It also offers a state-of-the-art report on recent discoveries concerning nutritional toxicology and where the field is going. It mainly focuses on advances made over the past 20 years. It will benefit graduate students, researchers and food and nutrition related regulation parties.
