Incluso antes del nacimiento, la nutrición desempeña un importante papel en nuestra vida, aunque muchas veces no seamos conscientes de ello. Cada día, seleccionamos y consumimos alimentos que, a la larga, pueden estar condicionando nuestra salud. La creciente información sobre la relación entre dieta y enfermedades crónicas (problemas cardiovasculares, obesidad, diabetes, osteoporosis, etc.) ha aumentado el interés por nuestra alimentación y, sin embargo, a veces nos sigue resultando muy difícil elegir la dieta más adecuada. Conocer la composición nutricional de los alimentos incluidos en estas tablas, en calorías, fibra, colesterol, grasa, etc., puede ser extraordinariamente útil para el diseño de dietas que permitan mejorar nuestra alimentación y adaptarla a las recomendaciones actuales para conseguir una salud óptima y mantener un peso adecuado y estable. Toda la información nutricional contenida en este libro tiene como principal objetivo ayudar al usuario a conseguir una mejor valoración y programación de los alimentos que consume. Las tablas de composición de alimentos, la de ingestas recomendadas y la de medidas caseras incluidas en este manual son instrumentos básicos en la práctica diaria de la nutrición y de la dietética, no sólo para el profesional sanitario o el estudiante de nutrición, sino también para todas aquellas personas que deseen realizar una vida sana y nutricionalmente equilibrada. Las tablas son una herramienta viva y dinámica, y como tal, en esta edición se ha revisado y ampliado la composición nutricional de los alimentos (superando los 700). Además, se ha incluido una extensa y útil guía de prácticas de dietética con numerosos ejemplos y casos prácticos sobre la valoración y programación de dietas de individuos y grupos que responde a una necesidad constatada en la formación de los estudiantes de nutrición en la adaptación al nuevo contexto del EEES y del crédito ECTS de las materias relacionadas.
Food Composition Data

About twenty years ago, there was a recognition in Europe that real benefits would flow from coordinating the manner in which food composition tables were produced in the various countries of Europe. Subsequent development of computerised nutritional data bases has further highlighted the potential advantages of working together. Such cooperation could lead to improved quality and compatibility of the various European nutrient data bases and the values within them. This realisation was one of the driving forces behind the development of the Eurofoods initiative in the 1980's when those people in Europe interested in data on food composition began working together. This initiative received further impetus with the establishment of the Eurofoods-Enfant Concerted Action Project within the framework of the FLAIR (Food-Linked Agro-Industrial Research) Programme of the Commission of the European Communities. It was quickly recognised that the draft guidelines for the production, management and use of food composition data which had been prepared under the aegis of INFOODS (International Network of Food Data Systems, a project of the United Nations University), would be especially applicable to the objectives of the Concerted Action. The guidelines have been written by two recognised experts. Many people associated with FLAIR Eurofoods-Enfant have added constructive criticism and advice to that offered previously by those associated with INFOODS. Thus the guidelines are backed by a consensus in the community of those responsible for the production and use of food composition tables and nutrient data bases.
This latest edition of the most internationally respected reference in food chemistry for more than 30 years, Fennema’s Food Chemistry, 5th Edition once again meets and surpasses the standards of quality and comprehensive information set by its predecessors. All chapters reflect recent scientific advances and, where appropriate, have expanded and evolved their focus to provide readers with the current state-of-the-science of chemistry for the food industry. This edition introduces new editors and contributors who are recognized experts in their fields. The fifth edition presents a completely rewritten chapter on Water and Ice, written in an easy-to-understand manner suitable for professionals as well as undergraduates. In addition, ten former chapters have been completely revised and updated, two of which receive extensive attention in the new edition including Carbohydrates (Chapter 3), which has been expanded to include a section on Maillard reaction; and Dispersed Systems: Basic considerations (Chapter 7), which includes thermodynamic incompatibility/phase separation concepts. Retaining the straightforward organization and accessibility of the original, this edition begins with an examination of major food components such as water, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and enzymes. The second section looks at minor food components including vitamins and minerals, colorants, flavors, and additives. The final section considers food systems by reviewing basic considerations as well as specific information on the characteristics of milk, the postmortem physiology of edible muscle, and postharvest physiology of plant tissues.

HACCP: A Practical Approach, 3rd edition has been updated to include the current best practice and new developments in HACCP application since the last edition was published in 1998. This book is intended to be a compendium of up-to-date thinking and best practice approaches to the development, implementation, and maintenance of HACCP programs for food safety management. Introductory chapters set the scene and update the reader on developments on HACCP over the last 15 years. The preliminary stages of HACCP, including preparation and planning and system design, are covered first, followed by a consideration of food safety hazards and their control. Prerequisite program coverage has been significantly expanded in this new edition reflecting its development as a key support system for HACCP. The HACCP plan development and verification and maintenance chapters have also been substantially updated to reflect current practice and a new chapter on application within the food supply chain has been added. Appendices provide a new set of case studies of practical HACCP application plus two new case studies looking at lessons learned through food safety incident investigation. Pathogen profiles have also been updated by experts to provide an up-to-date summary of pathogen growth and survival characteristics that will be useful to HACCP teams. The book is written both for those who are developing HACCP systems for the first time and for those who need to update, refresh and strengthen their existing systems. New materials and new tools to assist the HACCP team have been provided and the current situation on issues that are still undergoing international debate, such as operational prerequisite programs. All tools such as decision trees and record-keeping formats are provided to be of assistance and are not obligatory to successful HACCP. Readers are guided to choose those that are relevant to their situations and which they find are helpful in their HACCP endeavors.
