Horsemeat in burgers was hard to swallow, but there are far more sinister culinary crimes afoot... Chicken eggs that haven't come from chickens, melamine in infant's milk, nut shells in spices - these are just some examples of the food fraud that has occurred in recent years. As our urban lifestyle takes us further and further away from our food sources, there are increasing opportunities for dishonesty, duplicity and profit-making shortcuts. Sorting the Beef from the Bull features a series of food fraud tales from around the world. It explains the role of science in uncovering some of the century's biggest food scams, and explores the arms race between food forensics and fraudsters as new methods of detection spur more creative and sophisticated means of committing the crimes. This book equips us with the knowledge of what is possible in the world of food fraud and shines a light on the shady areas of our food supply system where these criminals lurk.

MEDIA REVIEWS
... Sorting the Beef from the Bull should be a must-read ... -- David Firn, Financial Times
The truth, as this eye-opening book shows, is that food crime is a global problem. * Daily Mail *
This is a thoroughly practical book. It's not all about science and global supply chains, it's also engagingly down to earth. * Country Life *
Evershed and Temple's book does more than detail the food industry's lengthy crime sheet. It also explores how the fraud is committed, how it can be overcome and, sadly, how the fraudsters are staying ahead. * Resurgence & Ecologist *
Fascinating and eye-opening, Sorting the Beef from the Bull is full of examples of how unsuspecting consumers around the world are being fooled by fraudsters. Everyone who cares about the quality of food should read this informative, enthralling book. -- Guy Crosby, science editor for America's Test Kitchen
Nicola and Richard have opened up the complex world of food fraud into a comprehensive and well-researched journey through the food groups, alerting us to the scurrilous scams of pirates and profiteers. The technical complexity in identifying tricks of the trade are tantalisingly described within the context of stories, which bring fascination and relevance to the most ignored and pervasive mysteries of our daily lives. -- Diana Spellman, Managing Director of Partners in Purchasing
