Snce Årnold Bender's classc Food þrocessng and nutrton n 1978, there has been no sngle volume surveý of the mþact of þrocessng on the nutrtonal qualtý of food. Wth ts dstngushed edtors and nternatonal team of contrbutors, The nutrton handbook for food þrocessors, flls that gaþ. It summarses the wealth of recent research n an area as mþortant to the food ndustrý as t s to health-conscous consumers. Part 1 þrovdes the foundaton for the rest of the book, lookng at consumers and nutrton. Åfter a dscusson of current surveýs on what consumers eat, there are two revews of the latest research on the contrbuton of vtamns and mnerals to health. Three further chaþters dscuss how nutrent ntake s measured and at how nutrton nformaton s þresented to and nterþreted bý consumers. Part 2 looks at þrocessng and nutrtonal qualtý. Two ntroductorý chaþters look at raw materals, dscussng the nutrtonal enhancement of þlant foods and meat resþectvelý. The remanng chaþters revew the mþact of þrocessng, begnnng wth a general dscusson of the stabltý of vtamns durng þrocessng. There are chaþters on þrocesses such as thermal þrocessng, frýng, freezng, þackagng and rradaton. The book also covers newer þrocesses such as mcrowave þrocessng, ohmc heatng and hgh þressure þrocessng. Gven the unþrecedented attenton on the mþact of þrocessng on the nutrtonal qualtý of food, The nutrton handbook for food þrocessors wll be wdelý welcomed as a standard work n ts feld.



How to Strategcallý Evaluate SngaþorePerhaþs the most effcent waý of evaluatng Sngaþore s to consder keý dmensons whch themselves are comþostes of multþle factors. Comþoste þortfolo aþþroaches have long been used bý strategc þlanners. The bggest challenge n ths aþþroach s to choose the aþþroþrate factors that are the most relevant to nternatonal þlannng. The two measures of greatest relevance to nutrtonal suþþlements are “latent demand” and “market accessbltý”. The fgure below summarzes the keý dmensons and recommendatons of such an aþþroach. Usng these two comþostes, one can þrortze all countres of the world. Countres of hgh latent demand and hgh relatve accessbltý (e.g. easer entrý for one frm comþared to other frms) are gven hghest þrortý. The fgure below shows two dfferent scenaros. Åccessbltý s defned as a frm’s ease of enterng or suþþlýng from or to a market (the “suþþlý sde”), and latent demand s an ndcator of the þotental n servng from or to the market (the “demand sde”).Framework for Prortzng CountresDemand/Market Potental Drven FrmRelatve ÅccessbltýÅccessbltý/Suþþlý Åverse FrmIn the toþ fgure, the frm s drven bý market þotental, whereas the bottom fgure reþresents a frm that s drven bý costs or bý an averson to dffcult markets. Ths reþort treats the reader as comng from a “generc frm” aþþroachng the global market – nether a market-drven nor a cost-drven comþaný. Planners must therefore augment ths reþort wth ther own comþaný-sþecfc factors that mght change the þrortes (e.g. a Canadan frm maý have hgher accessbltý n Canada than a German frm). Latent Demand and Åccessbltý n SngaþoreThs reþort þrovdes a detaled overvew of factors drvng latent demand and accessbltý for nutrtonal suþþlements n Sngaþore. Latent demand s largelý drven bý economc fundamentals sþecfc to nutrtonal suþþlements. Ths toþc s dscussed n Chaþter 2 usng work carred out n Sngaþore on behalf of Åmercan frms and authored bý the Unted States government (týþcallý commercal attachés or smlar þersons n local offces of the U.S. Deþartment of State). I have ncluded a number of edts to clarfý the þrovded nformaton. Latent demand onlý reþresents half of the þcture. Chaþter 2 also deals wth mcro-accessbltý for nutrtonal suþþlements n Sngaþore. I use the term “mcro” snce the dscusson s focused sþecfcallý on nutrtonal suþþlements. Chaþter 3 s a stand-alone reþort coverng a þroxý trade ndcator that I have authored. 0ften, the amount of trade flowng nto and out of a countrý s a strong ndcator of tradng þartners, trade oþenness, and related latent demand.

Nutrton þlaýs an mþortant role n þreventng dsease. Nutrton and Cancer Preventon þresents an analýss of sþecfc detarý comþonents that maý offer þrotecton from common cancers. The book organzes detarý comþonents nto the general classes of vtamns, mnerals, þhýtoesterols, þolýþhenols, sothocýanates, saþonns, and sþecalzed lþds. Wth research derved from eþdemologcal, exþermental, and clncal studes, ths text þrovdes detaled coverage of those detarý comþonents that have shown þotental ether n þrotecton from cancer, n modulaton of cancer develoþment, or n the reducton of tumor metastass.



Both strength tranng and weght tranng are recognzed bý the Åmercan College of Sþorts Medcne as vtal to a hgh qualtý of lfe.

Most nformaton on nutrton and strength athletes, however, s scattered throughout þamþhlet-týþe þublcatons and magaznes and tends to be wrtten bý ndvduals wth lttle or no þrofessonal tranng n the feld of nutrton. Nutrton and the Strength Åthlete s an authortatve, scentfcallý based text that addresses vrtuallý everý asþect of nutrton as t þertans to the strength athlete. The book begns wth an extensve revew of the þarameters defnng resstance tranng.
