Encyclopedia of Dairy Sciences 2nd Edition, Four-Volume set

Dairy Science includes the study of milk and milk-derived food products, examining the biological, chemical, physical, and microbiological aspects of milk itself as well as the technological (processing) aspects of the transormation of milk into its various consumer products, including beverages, fermented products, contentraed and dried products, butter and ice cream.

This new edition includes information on the possible impact of genetic modification of dairy animals, safety concerns of raw milk and raw milk products, peptides in milk, dairy-based allergies, packaging and shelf-life and other topics of importance and interest to those in dairy research and industry.

Academic researchers in laboratories; researchers and managers working in industry; students studying applied dairy sciences or related subjects; those involved in economic and nutritional policy agencies; and the media

  • "...Highly recommended." - Anita Ezzo, Food Science and Technology Librarian, Michigan State University Library

    "...This is an item that is a must for every library dealing with dairy and in general food science." -- INTERNATIONAL DAIRY JOURNAL (January 2004)

    "The four-volume reference work serves as a complete resource guide for dairy science students, researchers, practitioners and industry personnel. Dairy cattle, their milk and milk products are the main emphases of the encyclopedia, but it also includes articles on other milk-producing animals, such as goats, sheep, horses, camels and Northern Scandinavian reindeer. There are articles specifically on economics and trade issues related to milk and milk products."--DeltaFarm Press.com


    "This encyclopaedia should be in every library dealing with dairy science..."--International Dairy Journal
