Modern Techniques for Food Authentication, Second Edition, presents a comprehensive review of novel techniques available for the food industry to authenticate food products, including various spectroscopic technologies, methods based on isotopic analysis and chromatography, and other techniques based on DNA, enzymatic analysis and electrophoresis. This new edition continues to pinpoint research and development trends for those working in research, development, and operations in the food industry that need critical, and readily accessible information on modern food authentication techniques to ensure a safe and authentic food supply. This will also serve as an essential reference source to undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers in universities and research institutions.
