Modern Biopolymer Science
Bridging the Divide Between Fundamental Treatise and Industrial Application
Industrialists developing new food and pharmaceutical products face the challenge of innovation in an increasingly competitive market that must consider ingredient cost, product added-value, expectations of a healthy life-style, improved sensory impact, controlled delivery of active compounds and... read more last, but not lease, product stability. While much work has been done to explore, understand, and address these issues, a gap has emerged between recent advances in fundamental knowledge and its direct application to product situations with a growing need for scientific input. "Modern Biopolymer Science" matches science to application by first acknowledging the differing viewpoints between those working with low-solids and those working with high-solids, and then sharing the expertise of those two camps under a unified framework of materials science. This title features real-world utilisation of fundamental science to achieve breakthroughs in product development. It includes a wide range of related aspects of low and high-solids systems for foods and pharmaceuticals.
It covers more than bio-olymer science in foods by including biopolymer interactions with bioactive compounds, issues of importance in drug delivery and medicinal chemistry.
