Analysis of Foods and Beverages Headspace Techniques covers the proceedings of a symposium on the analysis of foods and beverages by headspace techniques. The symposium is organized by the Flavor Subdivision of the Agricultural and Food Chemistry Division of American Chemical Society at its 174th National Meeting held on August 29-September 2, 1977 in Chicago, Illinois. It highlights methods of headspace concentration and headspace sampling that are producing results on a variety of products and model systems. Composed of 14 chapters, this book discusses a productive combination of techniques leading to the enrichment of headspace vapor components with gas chromatographic resolution followed by mass spectrometric identification. Core chapters address the analysis by headspace techniques of mouth odors, vegetable flavors, lipoxygenase catalyzed reactions, the vanilla bean, coffee, tea, cocoa, beer, wine, and sake. Finally, the book examines the use and abuse of headspace sampling, statistical treatments of GLC headspace data, as well as quantitative aspects, new instrumentation, and techniques. Flavor chemists and researchers will find this book invaluable.
