Reviews

"...the [team] at IFIS have done an excellent job. Entries do exactly what dictionary entries should do...this reference will really fit the bill...in the industrial, professional and supporting research areas... In particular those non (food) scientists who have supervisory and management responsibility in a food area will find this dictionary a 'godsend'. I fully expect every library where any food subject is taught to keep a copy... When comparing this Dictionary to anything else on the market, there is very little competition at all. I shall be ordering copies for my University library." Consumer Sciences Today, Volume 6, Issue 4, 2005"The Dictionary of Food Science and Technology...provides a comprehensive overview of terms...helping us to answer many of the 'what does it mean?' questions.The diverse range of disciplines which the dictionary covers makes it a useful addition to the book shelves of academics, teachers, students and researchers, as well as those working in the food industry...Since obtaining a copy of the Dictionary... we have had many occasions in the British Nutrition Foundation office to check the dictionary - it provides accurate and up-to-date definitions...[The Dictionary's] clear cross-referencing makes it a very accessible reference book for food scientists and nutritionists alike." The British Nutrition Foundation, Nutrition Bulletin, Vol 31, Issue 1, 2006"...the book contains a very large number of clear and concise definitions... the large contribution made by the Dictionary... provides a valuable reference deserving a place on both library shelves and amongst individual collections" iChemE Food and Drink Subject Group Newsletter, Issue 3, 2005 ".I have just received [the] Dictionary of Food Science and Technology... This is a reference book par excellence... It has been very carefully prepared and I found it useful in editing and proof-reading. Certainly one for your shelf." iChemE Food and Drink Subject Group Newsletter Editorial (Donald Holdsworth), Issue 4, 2005 ".the Dictionary should be a valuable tool for people working in related fields or anyone who has a general interest in the issues facing the international food sector. This Dictionary has been compiled to appeal to a wide range of users...for students of food science and technology and for teaching or research in this field, or food processors." Carbohydrate Polymers, Volume 63, Issue 2, 2006 "Dictionaries defining the terms used in the area of food science, food componants and food ingredients are quite rare, and good ones are even rarer. With the aim of satisfying the needs of both academia and the worldwide food industry, this book will have wide appeal." OFI (Oils and Fats International) Vol 22, No 3, 2006 "The dictionary could prove beneficial in supplying some insight to the terms, meanings, specific phrases and words used in the food science, confectionary, bakery, nutraceutical and even pharmaceutical industries. This book does that and more."Professor Jeremy Selman and IFIS have assembled a valuable technical resource, proving beneficial to a wide variety of individuals and industries." Kennedy's Confection magazine, 2006 "IFIS is also well-known through years of publishing information on, around and for the food industry. The dictionary has arisen out of their extensive data and has been rigorously edited and cross-referenced by the IFIS staff."The book has over 400 pages plus 3 appendices and can be highly recommended."We used the dictionary to cross-check some of the key words from this issue. The words were in there, but there were so many others and references to more that we got distracted!" Food Marketing and Technology, Vol 19, No. 6, 2005 "Produced to satisfy the needs of academia and the food industry this dictionary contains a huge range of both common and not-so-common definitions." "This is a useful and comprehensive dictionary which will be of value to students and researchers alike." The Food Magazine, Campaigning for safer, healthier food for all, Issue 71, 2005 "The Dictionary of Food Science and Technology is impressively comprehensive, yet compact and easy to read, and comprises nearly 8,000 widely-used terms, defined by a team of experts to satisfy the needs of academia and the food industry worldwide, and those working in related fields who may wish to learn more abot food and beverages."The 20-strong team of author/editors have set themselves, and largely met, a sizeable challenge. The result is a dictionary that not only answers the original question when looking for a straightforward definition or explanation of a specialist term but readily tempts and leads the reader into extended browsing between linked terms and related disciplines."...the dictionary can be used by anyone whose knowledge ranges from that of inquisitive students to the experts who might feel that 'they really ought to know' but are still keen to find out the real answers."The Dictionary of Food Science and Technology is an extremely useful and interesting resource for anyone involved in these and realted disciplines, particularly those who show an inquisitive approach to this fascinating subject. I thoroughly recommend it." Food Science and Technology, Volume 20, Issue 1, March 2006 "Over 400 pages with special terms relevant to food science can be found, as the dictionary is built on the Thesaurus to the FSTA database complied by IFIS (International Food Information Service)... You don't know what Tarag is or want to know about the use and nutritional value of Tamarillo fruit? You can find brief information here." VITIS-VEA Database "The Dictionary of Food Science and Technology provides a comprehensive overview of terms specific to food science and technology, and some areas of nutrition, helping us to answer many of the 'what does it mean?' questions". "The diverse range of disciplines which the dictionary covers makes it a useful addition to the book shelves of academics, teachers, students and researchers, as well as those working in the food industry"."Since obtaining a copy of the Dictionary of Food Science and Technology, we have had many occasions in the British Nutrition Foundation office to check the dictionary - it provides accurate up-to-date definitions of buzzwords such as 'bioactive peptides' and 'resistant starch'."Its clear cross-referencing makes it very accessible reference book for food scientists and nutritionists alike." Anna Denny, British Nutrition Foundation, London as in Nutrition Bulletin Volume 31, Issue 1, 2006
