About this book

This Brief provides an overview of different analytical methods and techniques for the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of Maillard Reactions and their reaction products in foods during processing and storage. Reliable methodology for the investigation of Maillard Reactions and their products are of utmost importance in food analysis: since Maillard Reactions can on the one hand be desirable and advantageous, influencing the colors, flavors and odors of food products, they can on the other hand also produce detrimental compounds afflicting the consumers’ health (e.g. furfurals, furosine, or acrylamide). 
This Brief introduces different analytical methods, which can be used to investigate and characterize Maillard Reactions and their products in foods, including for example capillary electrophoresis, high performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography with mass spectrometric detection, UV-VIS spectrophotometry, fluorescence, electronic nose, gravimetric systems, and many more. The chapters exemplify how the analytical techniques can be applied for assessing and evaluating different Maillard Reaction products in foods. Readers will find basic information, as well as practical hints and guidelines for application in their own laboratory.

Her MSc thesis, ‘Autoimmune Screening of type I diabetes mellitus at the beginning and in follow-up stages’ (Mentor: Prof. Giovanni Corsello,. Esq., University of Palermo, Italy), has been mentioned and proposed for the 2014 ‘Mariano Cefalù’ award (University of Palermo, Italy).

 

Salvatore Parisi, PhD, FSPCA PCQI, obtained his MSc from the University of Palermo, and PhD from the University of Messina, Italy. Between 1994 and 2010, Dr Parisi has been involved in different chemical activities working and travelling in different countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Czech Republic, and United States of America. Dr. Parisi serves as series editor for the SpringerBriefs in Molecular Science: Chemistry of Foods; he is also an associate of AOAC International, USA, Southern California Section, serving in the AOAC Official Methods of AnalysisSM (OMA) Expert Review Panel (ERP) for Fertilizers,  the AOAC SPIFAN ERP for 2- and 3-MCPD & Glycidyl Esters, and eight different AOAC working groups. He also co-authored the “Stakeholders’ Guidance Document for Consumer Analytical Devices with a Focus on Gluten and Food Allergens”, recently published in the Journal of AOAC International. At present, he is actively working at the Associazione ‘Componiamo il Futuro’ (COIF), Palermo, Italy.
