Understanding Food Formulations
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of what goes into foodstuffs, leading to demand for improved food labeling. This places an additional burden on producers during both the development of new recipes and the measurement of ingredients throughout production.
From the development of nutraceuticals and functional foods to reducing the salt content of popular products, the exact composition of foods is currently a hot topic. To meet the ever-increasing expectations of both consumers and regulators, accurate measurement of individual ingredients is essential, whether you’re monitoring the production of a market-leading product or developing a new recipe. Intended to be the ultimate guide to food formulation, this handbook provides a 360 degree look at the requirements of the sector, with in-depth descriptions of:
- Formulation in R&D labs
- Formulation in production environments
- Methods, applications and tips
