This is the third volume in the series on the chemistry and physical properties of milk constituents. Volumes 1 and 2 dealt with the commercially important constituents proteins and lipids, respectively. Although the constituents dealt with in this volume are of less commercial importance, they are, nevertheless, of major significance in the chemical, physical, technological, nutritional and physiological properties of milk and milk products. "Advanced Dairy Chemistry Volume 3" is the most comprehensive book available on the subject. The constituents of milk dealt with in this volume are lactose, water, milk salts and vitamins. The chemical and enzymatic modification of lactose and the physico-chemical properties of milk are also discussed.This book is a second edition of the very successful third volume in the series "Developments in Dairy Chemistry". Professor Fox, a world authority in this field, has pulled together an impressive international list of contributors, providing a title that will be great use to personnel working within the dairy industry and those in academics and research.
