From the reviews of the third edition:

“Food Chemistry does an excellent job of explaining the chemistry of food constituents as well as finished food products. … The book was written by food chemistry professors and is organized in the same way they teach their course. … All people can relate to food and it provides an excellent medium to present basic chemical principles. The wealth of knowledge in the book makes it a good reference book for anyone working in the field of food science.” (Sara J. Risch, Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 89, 2012)

"Has been extensively re-written and a number of new topics … have been introduced or completely revised. … This well-known and worldwide accepted advanced text and reference book is logically organised according to food constituents and commodities. It provides … up-to-date information. The extensive use of tables for easy reference, the wealth of information given, and the comprehensive subject index support the advanced student into getting in-depth insight into food chemistry and technology … ." (Food Trade Review, Vol. (74), June, 2004)

"This world-wide well-known and classical reference book in the field of Food Chemistry has been extensively re-written. … logically organized according to the food constituents and commodities. It provides … up-to-date information in food chemistry. The extensive use of tables and the comprehensive subject index enables the advanced students to get an in-depth insight into both food chemistry and technology. But also for English-speaking professionals in these scientific fields … this up-to-date version is indispendable (sic) and, therefore, warmly recommended" (Advances in Food Sciences, Vol. 26(4), 2004)
