A comprehensive treatise on new developments in biotechnology, the authors of Biotechnology and Safety Assessment, 3e, bring readers an up-to-date review of food safety issues, pre-clinical safety and development of new foods and drugs, plant biotechnology, food allergies and safety assessment, and consumer benefits with regard to genetically modified food.
Tomorrow's foods will be obtained from genetically modified crops, offering consumers higher nutritional value and more of it. Our medications will be obtained through a variety of biotechnological procedures yielding more potent and specific medications for diseases and vaccines. In order to make this view of the future come to light, John A. Thomas and Roy L. Fuchs have updated their classic in order to keep readers one step ahead.
Written by internationally recognized molecular biologists, plant agronomists, microbiologists, toxicologists, nutritionists, and regulatory authorities, this third edition is an excellent and authoritative resource, making it a valuable resource to any biomedical library or scientific bookshelf.
Key Features
* Provides timely coverage on topics of agribiotechnology and biotherapeutics
* Describes the recent progress in genetically modified crops and their safety
* Presents an update of the newer developments in therapeutic agents
* Discusses role of genetically modified microorganisms in the development of new food products
* Outlines various global regulatory issues relating to GM crops
* Addresses environmental and ecological topics related to GM crops

This book provides a Management Science approach to quality management in food production. Aspects of food quality, product conformance and reliability/food safety are examined, starting with wheat and ending with its value chain transformation into bread. Protein qualities that influence glycemic index levels in bread are used to compare the value chains of France and the US. With Kaizen models the book shows how changes in these characteristics are the result of management decisions made by the wheat growers in response to government policy and industry strategy. Lately, it provides step-by-step instructions on how to apply kaizen methodology and Deming's work on quality improvement to make the HACCPs (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) in food safety systems more robust.

<i>Chemical Food Safety: A Scientist's Perspective</i> introduces readers to the science of risk assessment as applied to food safety and offers relevant, current information on research and statistics, chemicals, biotechnology issues, and emerging diseases that challenge the risk assessment strategies of toxicology and microbiology.<br><p>Riviere investigates the potential health consequences of pesticides, food additives and drugs, demonstrating how science can be applied to make risk assessments. He differentiates between &#8220;real risks&#8221; and &#8220;phantom risks,&#8221; unearthing numerous fallacies in the public perception of risk assessment and evidence of people&#8217;s intolerance to certain types of risks&#8212;no matter how remote. <i>Chemical Food Safety</i> is based on credible, scientifically correct data rather than irrational fears propagated by media coverage concerning food safety.<br><p>The book explores these riveting topics:<br>*food security and the world of bioterrorism,<br>*toxicity of natural compounds and artificial additives in foods,<br>*the toxicology of pesticides in food,<br>*issues of biotechnology and genetically modified food,<br>*other compelling issues in chemical food safety.With its focus on how the results of toxicology are applied in the real world, <i>Chemical Food Safety: A Scientist&#8217;s Perspective</i> will be a valuable addition to the libraries of food scientists, dieticians, animal producers, veterinarians and anyone else with a professional or personal interest in risk assessment, toxicology, epidemiology or food safety.
