Understanding the biochemistry of food is basic to all other research and development in the fields of food science, technology, and nutrition, and the past decade has seen accelerated progress in these areas. Advances in Food Biochemistry provides a unified exploration of foods from a biochemical perspective. Featuring illustrations to elucidate m
