Chapters in this new edition detail the source, biosynthesis, molecular structures, and physical properties of polysaccharides. They also explore production and uses in food formulations; the effects of cooking and interactions with proteins, lipids, sugars, and metal ions; analytical methods, including identification and quantitative determination; and nutritional and ecological considerations with emphasis on genetic engineering of food crops. The editors carefully balance coverage of fundamental aspects and practical implications for the food industry.
