Process and Reaction Flavors: Recent Developments (ACS Symposium Series)

SHARE on Watsapp

Much progress in the understanding and utilization of process flavors was made due to (1) advances in chromatographic separation and computer-related technology, (2) relentless investigation of a wide range of flavour precursors, (3) regulation that met consumer safety concerns , and (4) industry demand for better, complex and authentic products. The flavour industry is by far the largets user of knowledge from process and reaction flavour studies and had grown from approximately 2 billion 20 years ago, to about 8 billion dollars in annual sales today. Maillard reaction, lipid oxidation, degradation of suagrs, proteins, lipids, ribonucleotides, pigments and vitamins, and the interactions of degradation products are the chemical platform for generating many flavour compounds encountered in processed flavouring, flavours and foods. This book is organized to shed some light on the current state of science in process and reaction flavours, and to report significant findings.


The book provides a comprehensive overview of Process and Reaction flavors: Maillard reactions and its related degradation pathways of sugars, fats and proteins have become a convenient cost effective way of producing complex flavors. It gives a comprehensive overview of flavors generated thermally. The book then discuses the safety, legal and regulatory aspects followed by an introduction to Kosher and Halal issues.
