A new perspective on the global food security situation and highlights the need for seeking a common vision and implementing global planning to define the manner in which the human species will manage its food security. The basic question of 'is there enough food' is examined in general and then in some detail. The history of food production is reviewed in the hope that lessons can be learned from the past. But even after ten thousand years of experience we are not able to feed adequately about a third of our total population, despite what statistics can be made to tell us. Intensive agriculture has stripped out the nutrients that support plant growth and marginalised extensive tracts of land. The global solution to feed the growing population has been and continues to be - produce more food. Even during the last 30 years, about 95 percent of global research investments have focused mainly on increasing productivity. However about a third of the food produced, sufficient to feed over two billion hungry people, is lost or wasted in the food value chain. Climate change is another confounding factor that impinges on our discussions. Pests of all kinds continue to destroy food before and after it is harvested, even though the technology to protect it is available. A huge amount of food is wasted in value chains, particularly at the domestic level. Global food production systems are exposed to unprecedented biosecurity risks posed by invasive harmful organisms and this trend is likely to further exacerbate as current approach to biosecurity is based on the notional premise that lines on maps and the legislation that goes with them is sufficient to halt epidemics. Solutions include extending the number of cultivated plant and animal species to include those that can prosper in what are currently considered to be extreme environments.

You've seen the headlines - Parmesan cheese made from wood pulp. Lobster rolls containing no lobster at all. Extra virgin olive oil that isn't. So many fake foods are in our supermarkets, our restaurants, and our kitchen cabinets that it's hard to know what we're eating anymore. In Real Food / Fake Food, award winning journalist Larry Olmsted convinces us why real food matters and empowers consumers to make smarter choices. Olmsted brings readers into the unregulated food industry, revealing the shocking deception that extends from high end foods like olive oil, wine, and Kobe beef to everyday staples such as coffee, honey, juice, and cheese. It's a massive bait and switch in which counterfeiting is rampant and in which the consumer ultimately pays the price. But Olmsted does more than show us what foods to avoid. A bona fide gourmand, he travels to the sources of the real stuff to help us recognise what to look for, eat, and savor: genuine Parmigiano Reggiano from Italy, fresh caught grouper from Florida, authentic port from Portugal. Real foods that are grown, raised, produced, and prepared with care by masters of their craft. Part cautionary tale, part culinary crusade, Real Food / Fake Food is addictively readable, mouthwateringly enjoyable, and utterly relevant.

Life is a practical version of Hazard Potential of Chemical Residuals in Food. It provides the basic knowledge in the field of science, no matter where you are standing- in an office, in a bedroom, in an office, or in a field the knowledge about the food you eat is most important. You are observing the manifestation of Food exposed to other materials in one way or in the other way. The subject of hazard potential of chemicals has developed and studied by different points of view in the recent past. It is a rigorous and demanding subject. It is informative for all the individuals, irrespective of their field of study, consideration, perspective about food. In this Textbook, I have tried to introduce hazard potential of materials exposed to food, in such a way as to stimulate an interest and inculcate an understanding of the subject. This book has been written with a mechanistic approach to making the subject matter more clear, interesting and understandable. It covers the subject matter ranging from basics through the complete illustration about the mean theme of life. I have organized the subject matter of this Textbook in a chronological order to best suit your requirements. Each new chapter builds on the foundation laid in the preceding chapters so that when you start with any chapter you find yourself already prepared for the information as well as knowledge. I have tried to cover maximum material in a chapter, yet keeping its length manageable. Hazard potential of chemical residuals in food is mostly based upon the chemicals exposed to food directly and is, therefore, a pre-requisite to the understanding of hazard potential of chemical residuals in food. An understanding of hazards, source of hazards, effects of hazards and ultimate risks to food safety are therefore discussed in the very first chapter of this book followed by the migration of chemicals exposed to food (Chapter 2) that are very helpful in explaining the migration of chemicals by different food packaging materials to the food. Types of migration of chemicals to food are very important in explaining the migration of different chemicals by different sources. Therefore, a full chapter has been given to the packaging materials (Chapter 7) which is discussed after the exposure of food with artificial chemical residuals and natural chemical residuals because these chemicals provide useful basics and illustrations to explain various packaging materials. Although the chemicals in food or in contact with food are discussed in Chapters 3 and 4, the formal introduction to food industries was postponed till Chapter 8 in which various food industries are discussed. In chapter 5 the evaluation of sensory properties of food has been discussed, and in chapter 6 cleaning and disinfection importance in food processing is explained. The legislations on food contact materials and chemicals in contact with food are discussed in chapter 9 which is followed by one more chapter that is the last chapter of the book Chapter 10 named as prevention from the hazard. The general description of the chapter and basic knowledge about each chapter is given at the starting of every chapter because it has been found to be an effective way of recognizing the basics about that certain chapter. The ending of each chapter is by the best way to close the chapter and comprehension of the subject attained through study of the chapter. Answers to some questions can be found directly in the text, whereas the other will require some more efforts by reading the text carefully. However, the readers will be able to answer all the questions if they have acquired the comprehension of the subject matter given in the text. Detailed contents, in the beginning, provide the reader with a ready reference to the desired subject matter. Important terms are in bold face and their definition or explanations are given to make the text as clear as possible. I have used my experience gained by discussions spread over several years to present this job in a simple, systematic, lucid and logical way. I have given an up-to-date account of the subject within the framework of this Textbook. Primarily this book has been written for the graduate students.

This volume is the first to combine textual analysis of food media texts with interviews with media production staff, reality TV contestants, celebrity chefs, and food producers and retailers across the artisan-conventional spectrum. Intensified media interest in food has seen food politics become a dominant feature of popular media-from television and social media to cookbooks and advertising. This is often thought to be driven by consumers and by new ethics of consumption, but Media and Food Industries reveals how contemporary food politics is also being shaped by political and economic imperatives within the media and food industries. It explores the behind-the-scenes production dynamics of contemporary food media to assess the roles of-and relationships between-media and food industries in shaping new concerns and meanings with respect to food.

Few things are as important as the food we eat. Conversations in Food Studies demonstrates the value of interdisciplinary research through the cross-pollination of disciplinary, epistemological, and methodological perspectives. Widely diverse essays, ranging from the meaning of milk, to the bring-your-own-wine movement, to urban household waste, are the product of collaborating teams of interdisciplinary authors. readers are invited to engage and reflect on the theories and practices underlying some of the most important issues facing the emerging field of food studies today. Conversations in Food Studies brings to the table thirteen original contributions organized around the themes of representation, governance, disciplinary boundaries, and, finally, learning through food. This collection offers an important and groundbreaking approach to food studies as it examines and reworks the boundaries that have traditionally structured the academy and that underlie much of food studies literature.

The public is more interested in agricultural and food issues than ever before, as is evident in the many agricultural controversies debated in the media. Why is it that some people embrace new agricultural technologies while others steadfastly defend traditional farming methods? Why do some prefer to buy food grown around the world while others patronize small, local farmers? In the debates about organic food, genetically modified organisms, and farm animal welfare, it is not always clear what the scientific literature actually says. To understand these controversies, the authors encourage readers to develop first an appreciation for why two equally intelligent and well-intentioned people can form radically different notions about food. Sometimes the disputes are scientific in nature, and sometimes they arise from conflicting ethical views. This book confronts the most controversial issues in agriculture by first explaining the principles of both sides of the debate, and then guiding readers through the scientific literature so that they may form their own educated opinions. Is food safe if the farm used pesticides, or are organic foods truly better for your health? Are chemical fertilizers sustainable, or are we producing cheap food today at the expense of future generations? What foods should we eat to have a smaller carbon footprint? Is genetically-modified food the key to global food security, and does it give corporations too much market power? Is the prevalence of corn throughout the food system the result of farm subsidies? Does buying local food stimulate the local economy? Why are so many farm animals raised indoors, and should antibiotics be given to livestock? These are the issues addressed in Agricultural and Food Controversies: What Everyone Needs to Know. While it doesn't claim to have all the answers, it provides a synthesis of research and popular opinions on both sides of these important issues, allowing readers to decide what they value and believe for themselves.

Food Regulation and Trade - Toward a Safe and Open Global System (Paperback): Tim Josling, Donna Roberts, David Orden Food Regulation and Trade - Toward a Safe and Open Global System (Paperback)

Guarding the safety of a nation's food supply, ensuring quality, and providing information to consumers so that they can make informed food purchase choices are widely accepted as universal obligations of governments. But differences in the way that governments fulfill these obligations can lead to trade conflicts. The potential for such conflicts increases as more affluent and safety-conscious consumers demand additional regulations in the national food systems. Governments should handle these conflicts in a way that both upholds food safety standards--and public confidence in them--and preserves the framework for trade and the benefits of an open food system. This book examines the current state of regulation of the increasingly global food system, analyzes the underlying causes of the trade conflicts (both those that are currently evident and those that are waiting in the wings), and outlines the steps that could be taken to ensure that food safety and open trade become, at the least, compatible and, at best, mutually supporting.

Camembert - A  National Myth (Hardcover): Pierre Boisard Camembert - A National Myth (Hardcover)
Pierre Boisard; Translated by Richard Miller
R992 R766 Discovery Miles 7 660 Save R226 (23%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Camembert--delectably fragrant, creamy-centered, neatly boxed--is the most popular and most famous French cheese. Originally made by hand in the Norman countryside, it is now mass-produced internationally, yet Camembert remains a national symbol for France, emblematic of its cultural identity. In this witty and entertaining book, Pierre Boisard investigates the history of Camembert and its legend. He considers the transformation of France's cheese-making industry and along the way gives a highly selective, yet richly detailed history of France--from the Revolution to the European Union. "Camembert: A National Myth "weaves together culinary and social history in a fascinating tale about the changing nature of food with implications for every modern consumer.
As the legend goes, by coincidence, grand design, or clever marketing, the birth of Camembert corresponds almost exactly in time with the birth of the French republic. In this book, republicans and Bonapartists, revolutionaries and priests are reconciled over the contents of a little round box, originating a great myth and a great nation. The story of the cheese's growing fame features Napoleon, Louis Pasteur, the soldiers of the First World War, and many others.
Beneath this intriguing story, however, runs a grittier tale about the history of food production. We learn, for example, how Camembert became white--a topic that becomes a metaphor for the sanitation of the countryside--and how Americans discovered the secrets of its production. As he describes the transformation of the Camembert industry and the changing quality of the cheese itself, Boisard reveals what we stand to lose from industrialization, the hallmark of the past century.
Today, small producers of raw-milk, ladle-molded Camembert are fighting to keep their tradition alive. Boisard brings us to a new appreciation of the sensual appeal of a lovely cheese and whets the appetite for a taste of the authentic product.

Winner of the Outstanding Manuscript Award from Phi Alpha Theta, this work explains how nationhood emerges by viewing countries as cultural artifacts, a product of "invented traditions." In the case of France, scholars sharply disagree, not only over the nature of French national identity but also over the extent to which diverse and sometimes hostile provincial communities became integrated into the nation. In "When Champagne Became French: Wine and the Making of a National Identity, " Kolleen M. Guy offers a new perspective on this debate by looking at one of the central elements in French national culture--luxury wine--and the rural communities that profited from its production.

Focusing on the development of the champagne industry between 1820 and 1920, Guy explores the role of private interests in the creation of national culture and in the nation-building process. Drawing on concepts from social and cultural history, she shows how champagne helped fuel the revolution in consumption as social groups searched for new ways to develop cohesion and to establish status. By the end of the nineteenth century, Guy concludes, the champagne-producing provinces in the department of Marne had developed a rhetoric of French identity that promoted its own marketing success as national. This ability to mask local interests as national concerns convinced government officials of the need, at both national and international levels, to protect champagne as a French patrimony.

Consumers are increasingly demanding, looking for different food products, new, more shocking and surprising, and providing more pleasurable feelings. At the same time, consumers are becoming more informed and aware about food and health issues, demanding increasingly safe and healthy products. In such a scenario, the current food industry must maximize efforts to combine innovation, the ability to surprise, quality and safety. On the other hand, it is clear that there is no total overlap between the healthy aspects of food and the perception of this healthiness by consumers. In this sense, consumer information, education and awareness have to be important work areas in the future. This book aims to cover the modern strategies adopted by the food industry to obtain healthier foods without giving up the highest quality standards. The first two chapters are devoted to the novel systems of food hygienization; that is to say, the non-thermal technologies and phage therapy. The next two chapters cover the use of microbial cultures as bioprotective agents or with probiotic purposes in the food industry. Then, three chapters deal with the use of natural substances as preservatives, antioxidants, colorants, emulsifiers, sweeteners, anticaking agents, tenderizers, stabilizers, thickeners and gelling agents. The strategies for reducing some suspicious ingredients, or ingredients that arouse more misgivings in consumers (e.g. salt, fat, etc.), and minimally modifying the sensorial characteristics and consumer acceptability of the foods are also treated in several chapters. The use of microencapsulation, a promising technology for adding additives and ingredients to foods as well as the development of new healthy products are also described. Finally, the benefits and risks of consuming genetically modified food for the population and the technical aspects for producers are detailed in the last chapter. All of the contributors are active researchers, and they maintain excellent international reputations and great expertise in their respective areas. Overall, this book will be useful for graduates studying food science and technology, and for researchers, scientists, policy-makers and professionals from the food industries.
