About these proceedings
The EU-Novel Food Regulation and its accompanying guidelines are based on solid scientific foundations. Nevertheless, pervasive technologies such as genetically engineered modifications of plants, animals and micro-organisms should not be implemented without public consent. Responding to these dramatic scientific developments in the agro-food production and novel-food ingredients this volume focuses on defining, classifying and reassessing the quality of food towards human nutritional needs aimed at health. The editors and authors, European experts from industry, legislation and from food-, nutrition- and biotechnology research point out that food production and food processing is a much broader concept than just food safety assessment, food hygiene and food marketing.
This book is designed for all those actively involved in the food sector, for interested lay persons and the responsible consumer interested in getting information about the driving forces of the present and future food market, the food industry, the food policy, and the consumer association. In addition it will be of special interest to all who want to discuss this topic of great concern within a conceptual framework goes largely beyond the limits of the respective scientific disciplines.
