Note Editore

"Effects of Organic Production on Food Quality" is the first comprehensive book on how organic production methods influence the safety and quality of foods, based on an unbiased assessment of the scientific findings. The book addresses issues that the food industry and consumers raise about organic food in relation to conventional food and assesses the relevant scientific findings in the international literature and the results of food monitoring programs in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Documented findings related to the nutritional quality, safety and "healthfulness" of organic food are assessed, as well as findings related to the motivation of consumers to buy organic food. In "Effects of Organic Production on Food Quality," the food industry, researchers and academics will find an authoritative and up-to-date source of unbiased information detailing how organic production affects food quality. Examination of this research will allow the concerns of consumers to be adequately addressed, relevant marketing programs established and appropriate information disseminated.




Sommario

The internet is rife with biased and unsubstantiated claims from the organic industry, and the treatment of issues such as food safety and quality by the media ("if it bleeds, it leads") tends to have a negative impact on consumer perceptions about conventional food. Until recently, more and more consumers in many countries were opting to buy organic food over conventional food, resulting in a radical shift in food retailing. This was due to concerns over chemical residues, food poisoning resulting in recalls, food scares such as "mad-cow" disease, issues like gene-modified (GM foods), antibiotics, hormones, cloning and concerns over the way plants and animals are being grown commercially as food sources. As a result there has been an expansion of the organic industry and the supply of organic foods at farmers' markets, supermarkets and specialty stores. Effects of Organic Production on Food Quality is the first comprehensive book on how organic production methods influence the safety and quality of foods, based on an unbiased assessment of the latest scientific findings.  The title is a 'must-have' for everyone working within the food industry. Comprehensive explanation of organic production methods and effects on the safety and quality of foods Authoritative, unbiased and up-to-date examination of relevant global scientific research Answers the questions of whether organic food is more nutritious and/or more healthy
