Back Matter Pages About this book Introduction The preservation of food by chemical techniques has remained an important topic in food science and technology and a major branch of food processing in industry. The authors, both leading scientists at Hoechst AG's Food Research Department, review all aspects of food preservation by chemical techniques, the majority of which involve the use of chemical additives.
The first sections deal with general aspects of importance to all preservatives; special chapters concentrate on the properties and uses of industrial preservatives. The detailed and practice-oriented explanations make this edition a valuable source of information for food specialists in industry, government authorities and nutritional science.

Msagati Published Chemistry. Food antioxidants play an important role in the food industry due to their ability to neutralise free radicals that might be generated in the body. They do that by donating their own electrons to free radicals without becoming free radicals in the process themselves, hence terminating the radical chain reaction. Save to Library.

All food additives used in Australia undergo a safety assessment, which includes rigorous testing, before they are approved. Toxicological tests on animals are used to determine the amount of the additive that is expected to be safe when consumed by humans. If there is any doubt over the safety of an additive, approval is not given. If new scientific information becomes available suggesting that a food additive is no longer safe, the approval to use the food additive would be withdrawn.
