Analysis of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in Food provides a unique and comprehensive
professional reference source covering most of the recent analytical methodology
of endocrine disrupting compounds in food. Editor Nollet and his broad team
of international contributors address the most recent advances in analysis of
endocrine disrupting chemicals in food. While covering conventional (typically
lab-based) methods of analysis, the book focuses on leading-edge technologies
that recently have been introduced. The book looks at areas such as food quality
assurance and safety. Issues such as persistent organic pollutants, monitoring
pesticide and herbicide residues in food, determining heavy and other metals
in food and discussing the impacts of dioxins, PCBs, PCDFs and many other suspected
chemicals are covered.
The book discusses the relationship between chemical compounds and hormone activity. What are the health impacts of different chemical compounds for men and animals? How are these compounds entering in foodstuffs? Analysis of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in Food offers the food professional what its title promises – a compendium of sample preparation and analysis techniques of possible endocrine disrupting compounds in food.
- Uniquely concentrates on analysis and detection methods of EDCs in foodstuffs
- Extensive coverage of the main types of globally available analytical techniques and methodologies
- Fully detailed properties, sample procedures, and analysis steps for each EDC
- Renowned editor Leo Nollet leads a broad team of international experts
