The improved second edition of Food Emulsifiers and their Applications integrates theoretical background with practical orientation and serves as a highly significant reference on the applications of emulsifiers in food systems. It offers practitioners an overview of the manufacture, analysis, physical properties, interactions and applications of emulsifiers used in processed food. The book is written for food technologists as well as R&D and product development personnel.
