We cannot control how every chef, packer, and food handler might
safeguard or compromise the purity of our food, but thanks to the
tools developed through physics and nanotech and the scientific
rigor of modern chemistry, food industry and government safety
regulators should never need to plead ignorance when it comes to
safety assurance. Compiled by two of the most esteemed researchers
in the food science industry, Leo M.L. Nollet and Fidel Toldra
(most recently 2010 American Meat Science Association Distinguished
Research Award recipient), Safety Analysis of Foods of Animal
Origin sets such a new and complete standard for testing quality,
that to use another resource could be considered irresponsible.
Bringing together more than 70 of the most respected investigators
from across the world, this invaluable resource - Covers all
relevant biological and environmental contaminants Details methods
to protect foods from bacteria, viruses, or parasites Considers all
sources of contamination along the supply chain including
veterinary drugs, irradiation, and genetic modification Looks at
ways to detect especially pernicious threats, including metals,
dioxins, allergens, and foreign proteins Organized for quick
reference, the book is divided into three parts: meat, processed
meats, and poultry; fish and seafood products; milk and dairy
products. Each of the chapters is dedicated to a specific spoilage,
foodborne pathogen, parasite, virus, adulteration, residue, or
toxin. Each starts with a discussion of the parameter in question.
Sample preparation and cleanup methods are then reviewed in depth,
followed by a detailed evaluation of various separation and
detection methods. Special attention is given to explain current
limits of detection and reliability. Finally, a brief summary
covers the presence of these parameters in different end products,
regions, and countries. To keep food safe requires vigilance, not
just in the rigor of methods, but also vigilance in terms of
keeping informed about current methods. Only the most recent
techniques and related literature are included in this text.
