While there is little dispute that probiotics and prebiotics, alone and together, have been proven to promote gastrointestinal health and proper immune function, the challenge faced by researchers is finding not only the right combinations, but also finding those that are fully compatible with the formulation, processing, packaging, and distribution of functional foods. The Handbook of Prebiotics and Probiotics Ingredients: Health Benefits and Food Applications comprehensively explores these variables and highlights the most current biological research and food applications. In this volume, a team of experts offers insight into the many facets of these products, describing the prebiotic, probiotic, and synbiotic applications in use today as well as those currently being studied. The book first examines the sources of prebiotics and probiotics and then describes the physiological functions of both products. The contributors discuss promising applications for a plethora of disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease, pediatric diarrhea, cancer, and various chronic diseases. The Handbook of Prebiotics and Probiotics Ingredients: Health Benefits and Food Applications contains chapters contributed by experts from around the world. The book takes a global perspective, providing a thorough reference for product developers and regulatory agencies, as well as for nutritionists and forward-thinking professionals.

Confectionery and chocolate manufacture has been dominated by large-scale industrial processing for several decades. It is often the case though, that a trial and error approach is applied to the development of new products and processes, rather than verified scientific principles. Confectionery and Chocolate Engineering: Principles and Applications, Second edition, adds to information presented in the first edition on essential topics such as food safety, quality assurance, sweets for special nutritional purposes, artizan chocolate, and confectioneries. In addition, information is provided on the fading memory of viscoelastic fluids, which are briefly discussed in terms of fractional calculus, and gelation as a second order phase transition. Chemical operations such as inversion, caramelization, and the Maillard reaction, as well as the complex operations including conching, drying, frying, baking, and roasting used in confectionery manufacture are also described. This book provides food engineers, scientists, technologists and students in research, industry, and food and chemical engineering-related courses with a scientific, theoretical description and analysis of confectionery manufacturing, opening up new possibilities for process and product improvement, relating to increased efficiency of operations, the use of new materials, and new applications for traditional raw materials.
