About this book

The Advanced Dairy Chemistry series was first published in four volumes in the 1980s (under the title Developments in Dairy Chemistry) and revised in three volumes in the 1990s and 2000s. The series is the leading reference on dairy chemistry, providing in-depth coverage of milk proteins, lipids, lactose, water and minor constituents.

Advanced Dairy Chemistry Volume 2: Lipids, Fourth Edition, is unique in the literature on milk lipids, a broad field that encompasses a diverse range of topics, including synthesis of fatty acids and acylglycerols, compounds associated with the milk fat fraction, analytical aspects, behavior of lipids during processing and their effect on product characteristics, product defects arising from lipolysis and oxidation of lipids, as well as nutritional significance of milk lipids.

In the years since the publication of the third edition there have been significant developments in milk lipids and these are reflected in changes to this volume.  Most topics included in the third edition are retained in the current edition, which has been updated; in some cases, new authors have given their perspective on certain topics.  Chapters on nutritional significance of dairy lipids have been considerably revised.

This authoritative work summarizes current knowledge on milk lipids and suggests areas for further work. It will be very valuable to dairy scientists, chemists and others working in dairy research or in the dairy industry.

Patrick F. Fox BSc, PhD, DSc, CChem, FRSC, FICI was Professor and Head of the Department of Food Chemistry at University College, Cork, Ireland, from 1969 to 1997; he retired in December 1997 and is now Emeritus Professor of Food Chemistry. Prof. Fox received PhD degree in Food Chemistry from Cornell University followed by postdoctoral periods in the United States. Prof. Fox’s research has focused on the biochemistry of cheese, the heat stability of milk, physicochemical properties of milk proteins, and food enzymology. He has authored or coauthored about 530 research and review papers, and authored or edited 25 text books on Dairy Chemistry. He was one of the founding editors of the International Dairy Journal. In recognition of his work, Prof. Fox has received the Research & Innovation Award of the (Irish) National Board for Science and Technology (1983), the Miles-Marschall Award of the American Dairy Science Association (1987), Medal of Honour, University of Helsinki (1991), the DSc degree of the National University of Ireland (1993), the Senior Medal for Agricultural & Food Chemistry of the Royal Society for Chemistry (2000), the ISI Highly Cited Award in Agricultural Science (2002), the International Dairy Federation Award (2002), Gold Medal of the UK Society of Dairy Technology (2007), and an autobiography published in Annual Review of Food Science & Technology (2011). Prof. Fox has been invited to lecture in various countries around the world.

James O’Mahony is a Lecturer in Food Science in the School of Food and Nutritional Sciences at University College Cork. He is the group leader and principal investigator for the food ingredients research group within the School, which is one of the largest, most active research groups within the School. He has co-authored and co-edited 15 books and book chapters, in addition to more than 100 research and review articles over the last 10 years.
