Novel Enzyme Technology for Food Applications Reviews the Latest Advanced Methods to Develop Specific Enzymes.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "Novel Enzyme Technology For Food Applications" to their offering.

Novel enzyme technology for food applications

- Reviews the latest advanced methods to develop specific enzymes

- Discusses ways of producing higher quality food products

- Explores the improvement and production of enzymes

- Analyses enzyme technology for specific food applications

The food industry is constantly seeking advanced technologies to meet consumer demand for nutritionally balanced food products. Enzymes are a useful biotechnological processing tool whose action can be controlled in the food matrix to produce higher quality products. Written by an international team of contributors, Novel enzyme technology for food applications reviews the latest advanced methods to develop specific enzymes and their applications.

Part 1 discusses fundamental aspects of industrial enzyme technology. Chapters cover the discovery, improvement and production of enzymes as well as consumer attitudes towards the technology. Chapters in Part 2 discuss enzyme technology for specific food applications such as textural improvement, protein-based fat replacers, flavour enhancers, and health-functional carbohydrates.

Novel enzyme technology for food applications will be a standard reference for all those in industry and academia concerned with improving food products with this advanced technology.

On September 15 2004, Aarhus School of Business (ASB) celebrated its 65th anniversary.

However, ASB's predecessor, The Jutland Business School (Den Jyske Handelshøjskole, DJH), has a somewhat more extensive history.
