With a foreword written by Professor Ludwig Narziss—one of the world’s most notable brewing scientists—the Handbook of Brewing, Third Edition, as it has for two previous editions, provides the essential information for those who are involved or interested in the brewing industry. The book simultaneously introduces the basics—such as the biochemistry and microbiology of brewing processes—and also deals with the necessities associated with a brewery, which are steadily increasing due to legislation, energy priorities, environmental issues, and the pressures to reduce costs. Written by an international team of experts recognized for their contributions to brewing science and technology, it also explains how massive improvements in computer power and automation have modernized the brewhouse, while developments in biotechnology have steadily improved brewing efficiency, beer quality, and shelf life.
Offers detailed studies of beer and its production as well as its commercial and economic aspects. All beverages worldwide which are beer-like in character and alcoholic content are reviewed. The book delineates over 900 chemical compounds that have been identified in beers, pinpoints their sources, gives concentration ranges, and examines their influence on beer quality. This work is intended for brewing, cereal and food chemists and biochemists; composition, nutrition, biochemical, food and quality assurance and control engineers; nutritionists; food biologists and technologists; microbiologists; toxicologists; and upper level undergraduate and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
Brewing is designed for those involved in the malting, brewing, and allied industries who have little or no formal training in brewing science. While some elementary knowledge of chemistry and biology is necessary, the book clearly presents the essentials of brewing science and its relationship to brewing technology. Brewing focuses on the principles and practices most central to an understanding of the brewing process, including preparation of malt, hops, and yeast; the fermentation process; microbiology and contaminants; and finishing, packaging, and flavor. The second edition gives more emphasis to engineering and technological aspects, with the three new chapters on water, engineering and analysis. Brewing, Second Edition, is both a basic text for traditional college, short, and extension courses in brewing science, and a basic reference for anyone in the brewing industry.
Automated Stream Analysis for Process Control, Volume 2 focuses on the various approaches to choosing the sample preparation, sample point, sample transport, and analyzer that are best suited for the components in a specific process stream. This book discusses the engineering approach to the design of a process-control system as well as the interfacing of the analytical results with computers to apprise the operator of the progress of the stream operation. Comprised of eight chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the calibration methods and explains its advantages and disadvantages. This book then discusses the techniques that may enhance the accuracy of the calibration procedure. Other chapters provide an in-depth discussion of the chemical reactions and scope of analytical procedures utilized in the brewing of a popular beer. This text discusses as well how every process can be made more profitable by implementing continuous analytical procedures to monitor the different reactions occurring in the process. Chemists, chemical engineers, analytical chemists, as well as laboratory and plant managers will find this book extremely useful.
Trends in Nonalcoholic Beverages covers the most recent advances, production issues and nutritional and other effects of different nonalcoholic beverages, such as carbonated beverages, cereal-based beverages, energy drinks, fruit punches, non-dairy milk products, nonalcoholic beer, ready-to-drink products (e.g. tea, coffee), smoothies, sparkling and reduced water beverages. In addition, it covers relevant issues, such as traditional non-alcoholic beverages, labeling and safety issues during production, as well as the intake of functional compounds in particular applications. This is an essential resource for food scientists, technologists, engineers, nutritionists and chemists as well as professionals working in the food/beverage industry. Provides nutrient profiles and the effects of non-alcoholic beverages Presents the relevance of the HACCP system for the non-alcoholic beverage industry Covers a broad range of different non-alcoholic beverages that exist in the market and their characteristics with regard to personalized nutrition
Processing and Impact on Antioxidants in Beverages presents information key to understanding how antioxidants change during production of beverages, how production options can be used to enhance antioxidant benefit, and how to determine the production process that will result in the optimum antioxidant benefit while retaining consumer acceptability. In the food industry, antioxidants are added to preserve the shelf life of foods and to prevent off-flavors from developing. These production-added components also contribute to the overall availability of essential nutrients for intake. Moreover, some production processes reduce the amount of naturally occurring antioxidants. Thus, in terms of food science, it is important to understand not only the physiological importance of antioxidants, but what they are, how much are in the different food ingredients, and how they are damaged or enhanced through the processing and packaging phases. This book specifically addresses the composition and characterization of antioxidants in coffee, green tea, soft drinks, beer, and wine. Processing techniques considered here include fermentation and aging, high-pressure homogenization, enzymatic debittering, and more. Lastly, the book considers several selective antioxidant assays, such as Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) and Trolox Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity (TEAC) assays. Provides insights into processing options for enhanced antioxidant bioavailability Presents correlation potentials for increased total antioxidant capacity Includes methods for the in situ or in-line monitoring of antioxidants to reduce industrial loss of antioxidants in beverages Proposes processing of concentrated fractions of antioxidants that can be added to foods
