About this book
This Symposium on Modern Methods of Food Analysis was the sev enth in a series of basic symposia, begun in 1976, on topics of major importance to food scientists and food technologists. The Symposium, sponsored jointly by the Institute of Food Technologists and the In ternational Union of Food Science and Technology, was held June 17 and 18, 1983, in New Orleans immediately prior to the 43rd annual 1FT meeting. Like the other six basic symposia, the program brought together outstanding speakers, from biochemistry, chemistry, food science, microbiology and nutrition, who are at the cutting edge of their specialty, and provided a setting where they could interact with each other and with the participants. The Symposium and this book are dedicated to the memory of George F. Stewart (1908-1982) who made so many important contributions to the field of food science, including that of food analysis. Bernard S. Schweigert has documented George F. Stewart's contributions in the Dedication of this book.
