About the list

This list was curated by Friendspire on 5 April 2021, based on a list of books by Book Authority.

Ever wonder what makes reading so special? Maybe it's the smell of an old paperback or the weight of its pages. Whatever it is, reading has the ability to take us somewhere else entirely. Whether it's through historical novels or fantasy, there's nothing better than getting lost in a book. Of course, you can always view the film adaptation, but it never qu

Resetting the Table

2021 | Robert Paarlberg

A bold, science-based corrective to the groundswell of misinformation about food and how it's produced, examining in detail local and organic food, food companies, nutrition labeling, ethical treatment of animals, environmental impact, and every other aspect from farm to table Consumers want to know more about their food--including the farm from which it came, the chemicals used in its production, its nutritional value, how the animals were treated, and the costs to the environment. They are being told that buying organic foods, unprocessed and sourced from small local farms, is the most healthful and sustainable option. Now, Robert Paarlberg reviews the evidence and finds abundant reason to disagree. He delineates the ways in which global food markets have in fact improved our diet, and how "industrial" farming has recently turned green, thanks to GPS-guided precision methods that cut energy use and chemical pollution. He makes clear that America's serious obesity crisis does not come from farms, or from food deserts, but instead from "food swamps" created by food companies, retailers, and restaurant chains. And he explains how, though animal welfare is lagging behind, progress can be made through continued advocacy, more progressive regulations, and perhaps plant-based imitation meat. He finds solutions that can make sense for farmers and consumers alike and provides a road map through the rapidly changing worlds of food and farming, laying out a practical path to bring the two together.

The Future of Nutrition Lib/E: An Insider's Look at the Science, Why We Keep Getting It Wrong, and How to Start Getting It Right

T Colin Campbell, Nelson Disla

Why, despite the many advances in science and technology over the past few decades, does our health only seem to be getting worse? Why, despite so much time and energy spent studying the foods we eat, are we more confused than ever about nutrition--what good nutrition looks like, and what it can do for our health? Colin Campbell's first book, The China Study--with three million copies sold (and growing!)--laid out the exhaustive evidence for the whole foods, plant-based diet as the healthiest way to eat. His New York Times bestselling follow-up, Whole, addressed the widespread scientific emphasis on reductionism that has kept our focus on the discrete behaviors of individual vitamins and nutrients in the foods we eat, rather than diet's synergistic effects on health. Now, in The Future of Nutrition: An Insider's Look at the Science, Why We Keep Getting it Wrong, and How to Start Getting it Right, Campbell takes on the institution of nutrition itself: the history of how we got locked in to focusing on "disease care" over health care; the widespread impact of our reverence of animal protein on our interpretation of scientific evidence; the way even well-meaning organizations can limit what science is and is not taken seriously; and what we can do to ensure the future of nutrition is different than its past. The Future of Nutrition offers a fascinating deep-dive behind the curtain of the field of nutrition--with implications both for our health and for the practice of science itself.

Essentials of Food Science

2003 | Vickie Vaclavik,Elizabeth W. Christian

Designed primarily for the non-Food Science major, this textbook presents principles of food science for the nutrition, dietetics, hospitality, and culinary arts student enrolled in an introductory food science course. As in the first edition the book is easily readable. Chapters follow the order of the USDA's Food Guide Pyramid, beginning with foods appearing at the base of the Pyramid - the bread, cereal, rice, and pasta foods, and continuing with foods through the top of the Pyramid - the fatty, oils, and sweets. A chapter on baked products covers batters and doughs, and builds upon information in earlier chapters. The last chapters cover aspects of food production and government regulation. For this second edition the authors have expanded the concepts relating to material in all chapters, including quality, gums, organic food, irradiation, biotechnology, sugar substitutes, fat replacers, packaging, health claims, and dietary guidelines. There is also a new chapter dedicated to a discussion on emulsification and foams. In addition, the index has been revamped. As nutrition and food safety continue to be important issues, where applicable, individual chapters contain sections on nutritive value and safety concerns regarding the foods discussed. Additionally, each chapter contains a glossary and helpful references useful for further study. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Essentials of Food Science, Second Edition combines food chemistry, food technology, and food preparation into one single source of information.

Handbook of Hydrocolloids

2009 | G.O. Phillips, P.A. Williams

Hydrocolloids are among the most widely used ingredients in the food industry. They function as thickening and gelling agents, texturizers, stabilisers and emulsifiers and in addition have application in areas such as edible coatings and flavour release. Products reformulated for fat reduction are particularly dependent on hydrocolloids for satisfactory sensory quality. They now also find increasing applications in the health area as dietary fibre of low calorific value. The first edition of Handbook of Hydrocolloids provided professionals in the food industry with relevant practical information about the range of hydrocolloid ingredients readily and at the same time authoritatively. It was exceptionally well received and has subsequently been used as the substantive reference on these food ingredients. Extensively revised and expanded and containing eight new chapters, this major new edition strengthens that reputation. Edited by two leading international authorities in the field, the second edition reviews over twenty-five hydrocolloids, covering structure and properties, processing, functionality, applications and regulatory status. Since there is now greater emphasis on the protein hydrocolloids, new chapters on vegetable proteins and egg protein have been added. Coverage of microbial polysaccharides has also been increased and the developing role of the exudate gums recognised, with a new chapter on Gum Ghatti. Protein-polysaccharide complexes are finding increased application in food products and a new chapter on this topic as been added. Two additional chapters reviewing the role of hydrocolloids in emulsification and their role as dietary fibre and subsequent health benefits are also included. The second edition of Handbook of hydrocolloids is an essential reference for post-graduate students, research scientists and food manufacturers. Extensively revised and expanded second edition edited by two leading international authoritiesProvides an introduction to food hydrocolliods considering regulatory aspects and thickening characteristicsComprehensively examines the manufacture, structure, function and applications of over twenty five hydrocolloids
