BOOK EXCERPT:

The global market for seafood products continues to increase year by year. Food safety considerations are as crucial as ever in this sector, and higher standards of quality are demanded even as products are shipped greater distances around the world. The current global focus on the connection between diet and health drives growth in the industry and offers commercial opportunities on a number of fronts. There is great interest in the beneficial effects of marine functional compounds such as omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Seafoods are well-known as low calorie foods, and research continues into the nutritional effects on, for example, obesity and heart disease. In addition, by-products of marine food processing can be used in nutraceutical applications. This book is a resource for those interested in the latest advances in the science and technology of seafood quality and safety as well as new developments in the nutritional effects and applications of marine foods. It includes chapters on the practical evaluation of seafood quality; novel approaches in preservation techniques; flavour chemistry and analysis; textural quality and measurement; packaging; the control of food-borne pathogens and seafood toxins. New research on the health-related aspects of marine food intake are covered, as well as the use of seafoods as sources of bioactives and nutraceuticals. The book is directed at scientists and technologists in academia, government laboratories and the seafood industries, including quality managers, processors and sensory scientists.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Seafood and related products have an important place in the human diet; it provides for the protein needed and has a nutritional composition that has favorable health impacts on human beings. Considering the rapid increase in the world population and the demand in terms of protein needs that are provided by seafood, the necessary need to assure the quality and safety of seafood products has been prioritised. Due to nutritional composition, neutral pH, high moisture content, weak connective tissue and living environment (fresh and seawater), seafood is very perishable. Maintaining the quality and safety of seafood needs higher attention compared to other food products. This handbook compiles recent methods and applications, as well as technologies utilised to guarantee the quality and safety of various types of seafood from harvesting to the retail level. The status of emerging and hurdle technology applications, genomic, mathematical and computer-based methods, quality economics together with chemical, sensory and microbiological changes, and quality/safety of seafood products are reviewed and discussed in this book. The emphasis on less-known or under-valued species from different locales was intentional. This handbook is an abridged, streamlined but relatively comprehensive reference for food engineers and technologists, producers from the industry, and undergraduate and graduate students studying this field of academia.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book seeks to address the challenges facing the international seafood industry via a two pronged approach: by offering the latest information on established technologies and introducing new ideas and technologies. An introductory chapter sets the tone for the book by presenting the background against which fish processing will exist in the near future. Chapter two looks at the environmental and sustainability issues relating to conventional fish processing, including processing efficiency and better use of the outputs currently considered wastes. The impact of mechanisation and computerisation on environmental sustainability is also addressed. Subsequent chapters examine the latest developments in established fish processing technologies such as canning, curing, freezing and chilling, with an emphasis on the environmental aspects of packaging and the process itself. In addition, quality and processing parameters for specific species, including new species, are described. The second part of the book gives authors the opportunity to introduce the potential technologies and applications of the future to a wider audience. These include fermented products and their acceptance by a wider audience; the utilisation of fish processing by-products as aquaculture feeds; and the use of by-products for bioactive compounds in biomedical, nutraceutical, cosmetic and other applications.
