|Abstract:||This encyclopedia is a very useful acquisition for food-chemists, -technologists and -toxicologists, pharmacologists and chemists in general. It is well presented and is a helpful reference book covering many disciplines both, for scientists and students. The easy readable style also makes this book a suitable source of information for consumers of food and pharmaceutical solutions. The only criticism is that for some ingredients a more up-dated list of references would be useful and that for some cases the complete toxicological properties are always mentioned (f.ex.: dencichine in Tienchi Ginseng is a neurotoxin which should be indicated).|
