Food Additives
H.A. Modi
In food processing and preservation, certain chemical substances called “food additives” are used. These are meant to enhance the overall acceptability of the food in appearance and colour, flavour and texture, mouthfeel and in some cases the nutritive value. Preservatives contribute another class of additives whose main function is the extension of shelf-life by preventing spoilage of food products due to their anti-microbial activities. Food additives have to keep pace with the fast growing food industry in India and elsewhere in the world. With many chemical additives being banned, the need for natural alternatives is being felt. Some of these additives are produced at present by fermentation technology while others have possibility of production using biotechnology and genetic engineering techniques in future. These and related aspects of various food additives have been reviewed in twenty five chapters of this book. The contents includes : Biotechnology and Food Industry • Introduction to Food Additives • Acidulants • Lipid Antioxidants • Emulsifiers and Stabilisers • Microbial Polysaccharides as Thickeners • Food Colours • Humectants • Amino Acids as Nutrient Supplements • Sweeteners and HFCS • High Intensity Sweeteners • Scope and Development of Flavour Industry • Natural Flavourings and Essences • Spices and Herbs • Vanilla and Vanillin • Natural Aroma Formation during Food Processing • Biotechnological Production of Flavours • Flavour Enhancers : Nucleosides, Nucleotides and MSG • Organic Acid Preservatives • Non-Acid Antimicrobial Preservatives • Antimicrobial Preservatives of Microbial Origin • Antimicrobial Enzymes as Preservatives • Miscellaneous Food Additives of Microbial Origin • Enzymes in Food Processing Industry • Microbial Surfactants in Food Applications • Bibliography • Index It will prove of great help to students pursuing U.G. and P.G. courses in Food Science and Technology, Dairy Science and Technology, Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, Home Sciences, Food Nutrition and Home Economics as well as other basic science courses (Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences) where this subject forms a part of its applied biotechnology curricula. ..more

Women Entrepreneurship : Challenges & Opportunities
N. ShuklaM. Chansoria
Entrepreneur is one who innovates, organizes, manages and assumes the risk of an enterprise and acts as a catalytic agent in growth process. When an enterprise is established and controlled by a woman, it not only boosts economic growth but also has many desirable socioeconomic outcomes. Swami Vivekananda had once remarked “There is no change for the welfare of the world unless te condition of women is improved, is it possible for a bird to fly on one wing.” Women have innate flair for entrepreneruship. They are natural organizers and relationship builders. They can perform all the functions of an able entrepreneur in an efficient manner as their male counterpart, still they constitute less than 12% of self employed workforce in India, which is very less as compared to developed nations. This calls for concerted efforts to promote their role in entrepreneurial activities so that they can contribute to the growth process of te nation. Growth of women entrepreneur can go a long way in bridging the gap in gender inequalities in our country. The present book contains 35 different articles in which it is our endeavoor to cover the major aspect of women entrepreneurship. It is hoped that the book will be highly useful to students, scholars, professors, planners and policy makers. ..more

Good Parenting
N. Datta
The book "Good Parenting" is concerned with all facets of parenting. Despite the fact that most people become parents and everyone who has ever lived has had parents, parenting remains a most mystifying subject. Who is ultimately responsible for parenting? Does parenting come naturally, or must we learn how to parent? How do parents conceive of parenting? Of childhood? What does it mean to parent a preterm baby, twins, or a child with a disability? To be a younger or an older parent, or one who is divorced, disabled, or drug abusing? What do theories in psychology (psychoanalysis, personality theory, and behaviour genetics, for example) contribute to our understanding of parenting? What are the goals parents have for themselves? For their children? What are the functions of parents’ beliefs? Of parents’ behaviours? What accounts for parents’ believing or behaving in similar ways? What accounts for all the attitudes and actions of parents that differ? How do children influence their parents? How do personality, knowledge, and world view affect parenting? How do social status, culture, and history shape parenthood? How can parents effectively relate to schools, daycare, and their children’s pediatricians? These are some of the questions addressed in this book “Good Parenting” for this is a book on how to parent as much as it is one on what being a parent is all about. Hope the book is helpful to scholars and students of Psychology, Sociology and Home Science." ..more

Quality Food Preparation Techniques
P. V. Patil
Food is any substance, usually composed primarily of carbohydrates, fats, water and/or proteins, that can be eaten or drunk by an animal for nutrition. Most traditions have a recognizable cuisine, a specific set of cooking traditions, preferences, and practices, the study of which is known as food gastronomy. Whereas study of food is called food science. While some food can be eaten without preparation, many foods undergo some form of preparation for reasons of safety, palatability, or flavour. At the simplest level this may involve washing, cutting, trimming or adding other foods or ingredients, such as spices. It may also involve mixing, heating or cooling, pressure cooking, fermentation, or combination with other food. In a home, most food preparation takes place in a kitchen. Some preparation is done to enhance the taste or aesthetic appeal; other preparation may help to preserve the food; and others may be involved in cultural identity. A meal is made up of food which is prepared to be eaten at a specific time and place. The chapters, which indicate the in-depth coverage of the subject, include: • Introduction • Keep Food Safe, Healthy, and Appealing • Fruits and Vegetables • Meat and Meat Alternates • Cooking Methods • Food Preparation • Modern Food Security • Modern Techniques • Quality Food and Health • Bibliography • Index The book will be useful to Nutritionists, dieticians and all those involved with the hospitality and food industries." ..more

Foundations of Nutrition
P. Janakirao
Although we already know much about what nutreients are needed for an adequate diet and what foods provide them. You are likely already familiar with some of this nutrition knowledge. Reading food labels and watching one's weight are two common adult pursuits. Still, you will benefit by learning even more about nutrition, especially its role in contributing to overall health. What is the difference between food, nutrients, and nutritin? Food provides both the energy and the materials needed to build and maintain all body cells. Nutrients are the nourishing substances we must obtain from food. These essential substances are vital for growth and maintenance from infancy to adulthood. For a nutrient to be considered essential, two characteristics are needed. First, it omission from the diet must lead to a decline in certain aspects of human health, such as function of the nervous system.

Microbial Spoliage of Foods
H. A. Modi
The loss of food due to microbial spoilage has economic consequences for the producers, processors and consumers. Except for sterile foods, all foods harbor microorganisms. Food spoilage stems from the growth of these microorganisms in food or in due to the action of microbial heat-stable enzymes. New marketing trends, the consumer’s desire for foods that are not overly processed and preserved, extended shelf-life, and chances of temperature abuse between production and consumption of foods have greatly increased the chances of food spoilage and, in some instances, with new types of microorganisms. The major concerns are the economic loss and wastage of food. New concepts are being studied to reduce contamination as well as control the growth of spoilage microbes in foods. This book includes • Food Microbiology and its Horizons • Basics of Human Nutrition • An Introduction to Microbial Spoilage of Foods • Spoilage of Meat and Meat Products • Spoilage of Poultry and Eggs • Spoilage of Fish and other Seafoods • Spoilage of Dairy Products • Spoilage of Vegetables, Fruits and their Products • Spoilage of Cereal Products • Spoilage of Canned Foods • Spoilage of Frozen Foods • Indicators of Microbial Food Spoilage • Microbiological Testing of Food The book should prove to be an useful source of information for the students of food microbiology, food science and technology, food biotechnology, agriculture, horticulture, food and nutrition, hotel and catering management and other food-related courses. ..more

Microbial Biotechnology
H. A. Modi
The use of microorganisms for large-scale industrial processes is being used since time immemorial, which was long before the realization of the activities of the microorganisms. For centuries, beer, wine, vinegar, soy-sauce and other fermented foods like bread and curd were produced through spontaneous fermentation of naturally occurring microorganisms or the use of carry-over microbial seeds from the previous batch of fermentation. The diverse catalytic activities of microorganisms are being used more and more widely to perform specific chemical reactions in the industrial production processes. Microbial Biotechnology was escalated to a new height in the eighties when multifold developments have been realized in fermentation technology, which lead to considerable savings in capital, energy and labor costs. The scientific, breakthroughs like gene manipulation, genomics and proteomics have made the industrial manufacturing of human growth hormones, interferons, vaccines etc feasible. The basic principles of the subject are elaborately explained and discussed in well-organized twenty chapters in this book. The attempt is done that this book should prove to be a useful source of information for both undergraduate as well as postgraduate courses of Microbiology and Biotechnology. The contents of this book will also be useful to the students of Pharmaceutical science and technology, Food science and technology, Dairy Science and technology, Agricultural Microbiology and Biotechnology, Biochemical Engineering and other Fermentation related vocational courses. This book will also be useful as a reference source to get first-hand information of the subject for the people who are working in fermentation-based and biotechnology-based industries. ..more

Child Abuse
M. G. Pillai
A very important boon of the communication explosion as created by TV and other mass media is the awareness of the existence of child abuse on a large scale and the need to control and remedy it at the earliest to enable a child victim to grow up normally and without any neuroses and traumas that would not only affect his relationships with family and friends but also at the workplace. This book has been prepared with this awareness in view. Since child victims do not generally admit the abuse perpetrated on them or complain (the reasons are many) special effort has been made to investigate and explain the symptoms that could reveal the burden that a child is carrying in his mental framework. Chapters have been included to help in identifying the symptoms and also the remedial measures that can be taken to cure child victims of ‘faults’ they are not responsible for. Attention has also been paid to point out the preventive steps that should be taken while rearing children to ensure that they are not subjected to abuse of any kind-either from within the home or outside. It is with this aspect in mind and the need to not only identify the problem, but cure it when it exists, and preferably prevent it before it happens, that this book has been written. Its lucid and clear-cut chapters cover many myriad aspects. The contents include what is Child Abuse; Features of Sexual Abusers: Signs and Symptoms of Child Abuse; Sexual Coercion of the Child: Sexual Harassment: Prostitutes in Society: CO-operation with Parents: Working with Children: Play Therapy with Abused Children and Adolescents: and Helping to Prevent Abuse. Parents, teachers, counselors and all those connected with the handling of growing children will find this book useful in more ways than one. ..more

Rights of Children
B. Gopalkrishnan
That children are the citizens of tomorrow is not a debatable point. They have, therefore, a right to be educated, kept healthy, given care and affection and also justice and equality. Then only can they grow up into useful citizens of society. Unfortunately, in most countries all over the world, there is a sad lacking of awareness of children’s rights and, even sadder, a complete absence (with some rare exceptions) of ensuring that the child is given his lawful rights. An attempt has been made in this book to highlight what are the rights of the child, how he or she is deprived of them, and what exploitation takes place when children neither know their rights or can garner support to ensure that their rights are maintained. Areas that are of vital concern to the child, for example, education, health, social status and justice have been dealt with at length to enable the reader to be acquainted fully with the subject. Thus, this book is useful for sociologists, educationists, teachers, researchers, child specialists and all those entrusted with the care and upbringing of children, including parents. They can benefit largely in not only understanding all about children’s rights but also ensure its implementation by the concerned authorities and themselves. ..more

Child Development and Welfare Services
Sakshi Puri
Child welfare agencies in this country are suffering from over two decades of neglect and under-funding, which has eroded major sections of our country’s social services infrastructure. At the same time, there is a growing realisation that “business as usual” in many areas of child welfare is not adequate for strengthening families and protecting children. Yet, it is ironic that at a time when both public and private agencies are being swamped with referrals, cost-effective treatment strategies are being developed. It is a national disgrace that many child welfare staff members lack either the time or training to implement these service innovations. Within this context, this book examines major policy, practice and research issues as they jointly shape current child welfare practice and possible future directions. In addition to describing the major problems in the field of child welfare, the book highlights some of the service innovations that have been developed, which could be used to help address some of these challenges. The contents include Child Development: Orientation and Scope; Perspectives on Child Development Services; Child Welfare Services; Theory and Practice; Understanding the Policy Context for Child Welfare; Intake, Investigation and Risk Assessment in Child Welfare and Sociology of the Child Welfare Worker. There is also a Bibliography and Index. This book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in Social Welfare, Sociology and Child Studies. ..more

Nutritional Disorders and Community Health
Padmini GuptaRuchi Thakkar
SINCE time immemorial, man has lived in the lap of nature. He has drawn sustenance fromfruits, vegetables and roots. When he fell ill, he turned to Mother Nature for remedy and relief. Nutritional disorders have a pronounced effect on the health of the community. Although micronutrient deficiency does not produce hunger, it gnaws at the core of health. Most of its consequences are not really perceived; like an iceberg, its bulk lies beneath the surface. Even problems like blindness and cretinism, a grave form of mental retardation, seem to be unrelated to diet to most people. That is why deficiency of iodine micronutrients is called " hidden hunger" and extraordinary efforts should be made to tap all available channels to drag iodine deficiency disorders into the open to make it more visible as an issue at the political level and empower families with the preventive knowledge they need. Deficiency in iodine jeopardises children's mental health and often their lives. This starts even before birth; serious iodine deficiency during pregnancy may result in still births, abortions and congenital abnormalities such as cretinism. This book will prove useful not only to students of Home Science but also to nutritionists, medical and public health practitioners and policy makers. ..more

The philosophy of consumers has changed from, “How long will I live?” to “How well will I lie?” which in turn has shifted the desire of these consumers to nutritious, natural, and minimally processed foods that have not been subjected to “harsh processing” or “harsh preservation” techniques. Due to changes in socio-economic patterns and life styles, many consumers are also interested in foods that have a long shelf-life and take very little time to prepare. The suitability of several nonthermal processing and preservation methods are being searched to produce such foods. Various conventional and modern food preservation methods, are elaborately explained and discussed in this book. The book should prove to be an useful source of information for the students of food microbiology, food science and technology, food biotechnology, home science, agriculture, horticulture, environmental sciences, hotel and catering management as well as other food related curses.

Consumer Behaviour
Purnima Sharma
Consumer behaviour is a dynamic and multidimensional process and reflects the totality of consumers’ decision with respect to the acquisition, consumption and disposition of goods, services, activities and ideas. Most of the marketing problems arise because the products and services and marketing programmes are not in harmony with consumer’s mind. The study of consumer behaviour tries to harmonise marketing programmes and strategies with consumer needs. In India, due to increase in diversity of population and the ever-expanding choices and freedom makes the study of consumer behaviour a must for the marketing function. The 21st century is not going to be happy with “consumer satisfaction” but is certainly with “consumer delight”. This book is an effort to pave for this paradigm shift.  The entire book is divided into six chapters. The first chapter explains the concept, significance, determinants and models of consumer behaviour. The empirical investigation for collection of primary data has been undertaken through a research methodology in the second chapter. The third chapter highlights the importance of psychological factors in consumer behaviour. The fourth chapter includes the role of personal factors. The fifth chapter incorporates the influence of social and cultural factors. The conclusion has been drawn in the sixth chapter. The book is useful to the students, research scholars, marketers, business firms and psychologists.  ..more

Fermented Food Biotechnology
H. A. Modi
It is apparent that indigenous fermentations improve the digestibility and nutritional value of various foods and contribute towards the nutritional well-being of the world population. Due to the uncontrolled increase of Indian population and rising cost of milk and other proteins of animal origin, the consumption of fermented foods is expected to increase in future in view of the protein malnutrition particularly among the people belonging to the low income group. Since fermentations also produce meat-like flavour and texture in vegetable foods, the products prepared by controlled fermentations can provide a cheaper alternative to feed the additional segments of low income group in developing countries. The contents include: • Introduction to Fermented Foods • Legume-based Fermented Foods • Starch-based Fermented Foods • Indian Fermented Mixed Preparations • Baked Foods • Fermented Meat and Fish Products • Tea Fermentation • Coffee Fermentation • Cocoa Fermentation • Introduction to Fermented Milks • Fermented Milk Products • Microbiology of Cheese • Commercial Manufacture of Cheeses • Introduction to Fermented Vegetables and Fruits • Sauerkraut • Pickles and Olives • Vinegar • Ethyl Alcohol • Fermented Alcoholic Beverages • Distilled Beverage Spirits • Microbial Surfactants in Food Applications • Ensilage This book will prove of great help to students pursuing U.G. or P.G. courses in Food Science and Technology, Dairy Science and Technology, Agriculture and Veterinary Science, Home Sciences, Food Nutrition, Home Economics as well as other basic science courses (Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Environmental Science etc.) where this subject forms a part of its applied biotechnology curricula.
