Water--soluble polymers or hydrocolloids are widely used in many fields, including food, agriculture, ceramics, paper and ink technology, explosives and the textile industry. This important new book provides a comprehensive overview of novel aspects of their use in food products. Interest in the science and technology of water--soluble polymers is rapidly increasing and this book provides a much--needed and up--to--date overview. Chapters review important new food applications, giving short historical overviews, the latest information on uses and possible future applications.

"Overall, this monograph provides an extremely well--referenced review of many of the less well--known application of hydrocolloids in food production and an opportunity to appreciate other similar application...It will be of interest primarily to those with some existing knowledge of hydrocolloids, working in the development of food ingredients." International Journal of Dairy Technology, February 2005 "My recommendation is that every hydrocolloids company looking for new added value outlets for their products should read this book to stimulate their thought processess... This book is a refreshing look at the cutting edge of hydrocolloids applications research from a well known expert in the field who has a pragmatic but innovative approach to using hydrocolloids."
