Global Cheesemaking Technology: Cheese Quality and Characteristics reviews cheesemaking practices, and describes cheeses and the processes from which they are manufactured. In addition, the book examines new areas to stimulate further research in addition to the already established knowledge on the scientific principles on cheesemaking.
Part I provides an account on the history of cheese, factors influencing the physicochemical properties, flavour development and sensory characteristics, microbial ecology and cheese safety, traceability and authentication of cheeses with protected labels, and traditional wooden equipment used for cheesemaking, while an overview of the cheesemaking process is also presented.
Part II describes 100 global cheeses from 17 countries, divided into 13 categories. The cheeses described are well-known types produced in large quantities worldwide, together with some important locally produced, in order to stimulate scientific interest in these cheese varieties. Each category is presented in a separate chapter with relevant research on each cheese and extensive referencing to facilitate further reading.
Milk is nature’s most complete food, and dairy products are considered to be the most nutritious foods of all. Several books have been published on the subject of milk and dairy products; however, these books contain only partial or limited coverage on the subject and usually focus primarily on cow milk and human milk.
Milk and Dairy Products in Human Nutrition is the first book to contain comprehensive coverage of all available dairy species for human consumption around the world. The Editors have assembled a team of 61 internationally renowned experts to contribute to this exhaustive volume, which contains essential cutting-edge information for dairy scientists, nutritionists, food scientists, allergy specialists, and health professionals, as well as dairy consumers worldwide.
