One Line Description
The book covers regulations, analytical techniques for the detection of food contaminants, and analytical techniques used for the determination of the micro/macronutrients.

The book will interest researchers in academia and industry in food science/safety, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, bioengineering, and human nutrition.

Food safety and quality are key objectives for food scientists and industries all over the world. To achieve this goal, several analytical techniques (based on both destructive detection and nondestructive detection) have been proposed to fit the government regulations.
The book aims to cover all the analytical aspects of the food quality and safety assessment. For this purpose, the volume describes the most relevant techniques employed for the determination of the major food components (e.g. protein, polysaccharides, lipids, vitamins, etc.), with peculiar attention to the recent developments in the field. Furthermore, the evaluation of the risk associated with food consumption is performed by exploring the recent advances in the detection of the key food contaminants (e.g. biogenic amines, pesticides, toxins, etc.).
The 12 chapters written by senior experts from leading institutions around the world including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration tackle such subject as:
GMO analysis methods in food
Current analytical techniques for the analysis of food lipids
Analytical methods for the analysis of sweeteners in food
Analytical methods for pesticides detection in foodstuffs
Food and viral contamination
Application of biosensors to food analysis

Author / Editor Details
Umile Gianfranco Spizzirri obtained his PhD in 2005 from the University of Calabria. He is currently a member of the Technical Staff at the Department of Pharmacy, Nutrition and Health Science at the same university. His research activities are mainly related to the polymer chemistry and technology for the preparation of stimuli-responsive drug delivery systems, functional polymers for food industry, and new analytical methodologies for the food quality and safety assessment. He is author and co-author of more than 100 publications, including research and review articles as well as 2 co-edited books with Wiley-Scrivener

Giuseppe Cirillo received his PhD in 2008 from the University of Calabria Italy. He is currently in a post-doctoral position at the same university. His research interests are in the development of functional polymers with tailored biological activity (antioxidant, antimicrobial, anticancer, chelating), the design of smart hydrogels for drug delivery, the study of the activity of innovative functional foods and nutraceuticals, and the synthesis and functionalization of carbon nanotubes-based devices for biomedical applications. He is author and co-author of more than 100 publications, including research and review articles as well as 3 co-edited books with Wiley-Scrivener.
