Statistical Methods For Food Science
Author: John A. Bower
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Release Date: 2009-11-09
Pages: 320
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The recording and analysis of food data are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Consequently, the food scientist in industry or at study faces the task of using and understanding statistical methods. Statistics is often viewed as a difficult subject and is often avoided because of its complexity and a lack of specific application to the requirements of food science. This situation is changing – there is now much material on multivariate applications for the more advanced reader, but a case exists for a univariate approach aimed at the non-statistician. This book provides a source text on accessible statistical procedures for the food scientist, and is aimed at professionals and students in food laboratories where analytical, instrumental and sensory data are gathered and require some form of summary and analysis before interpretation. It is suitable for the food analyst, the sensory scientist and the product developer, and others who work in food-related disciplines involving consumer survey investigations will also find many sections of use. There is an emphasis on a ‘hands on’ approach, and worked examples using computer software packages and the minimum of mathematical formulae are included. The book is based on the experience and practice of a scientist engaged for many years in research and teaching of analytical and sensory food science at undergraduate and post-graduate level.

Release Date: 2012-09-10
Pages: 66
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Many statistical innovations are linked to applications in food science. For example, the student t-test (a statistical method) was developed to monitor the quality of stout at the Guinness Brewery and multivariate statistical methods are applied widely in the spectroscopic analysis of foods. Nevertheless, statistical methods are most often associated with engineering, mathematics, and the medical sciences, and are rarely thought to be driven by food science. Consequently, there is a dearth of statistical methods aimed specifically at food science, forcing researchers to utilize methods intended for other disciplines. The objective of this Brief will be to highlight the most needed and relevant statistical methods in food science and thus eliminate the need to learn about these methods from other fields. All methods and their applications will be illustrated with examples from research literature. ​

Release Date: 2011-06-20
Pages: 294
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

As we move further into the 21st Century, sensory and consumer studies continue to develop, playing an important role in food science and industry. These studies are crucial for understanding the relation between food properties on one side and human liking and buying behaviour on the other. This book by a group of established scientists gives a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the most common statistical methods for handling data from both trained sensory panels and consumer studies of food. It presents the topic in two distinct sections: problem-orientated (Part I) and method orientated (Part II), making it to appropriate for people at different levels with respect to their statistical skills. This book succesfully: Makes a clear distinction between studies using a trained sensory panel and studies using consumers. Concentrates on experimental studies with focus on how sensory assessors or consumers perceive and assess various product properties. Focuses on relationships between methods and techniques and on considering all of them as special cases of more general statistical methodologies It is assumed that the reader has a basic knowledge of statistics and the most important data collection methods within sensory and consumer science. This text is aimed at food scientists and food engineers working in research and industry, as well as food science students at master and PhD level. In addition, applied statisticians with special interest in food science will also find relevant information within the book.

Sensory Evaluation Of Food
Author: Harry T. Lawless
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2010-09-27
Pages: 596
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The ?eld of sensory science has grown exponentially since the publication of the p- vious version of this work. Fifteen years ago the journal Food Quality and Preference was fairly new. Now it holds an eminent position as a venue for research on sensory test methods (among many other topics). Hundreds of articles relevant to sensory testing have appeared in that and in other journals such as the Journal of Sensory Studies. Knowledge of the intricate cellular processes in chemoreception, as well as their genetic basis, has undergone nothing less than a revolution, culminating in the award of the Nobel Prize to Buck and Axel in 2004 for their discovery of the olfactory receptor gene super family. Advances in statistical methodology have accelerated as well. Sensometrics meetings are now vigorous and well-attended annual events. Ideas like Thurstonian modeling were not widely embraced 15 years ago, but now seem to be part of the everyday thought process of many sensory scientists. And yet, some things stay the same. Sensory testing will always involve human participants. Humans are tough measuring instruments to work with. They come with varying degrees of acumen, training, experiences, differing genetic equipment, sensory capabilities, and of course, different preferences. Human foibles and their associated error variance will continue to place a limitation on sensory tests and actionable results. Reducing, controlling, partitioning, and explaining error variance are all at the heart of good test methods and practices.

Pages: 240
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Statistical experimental design is currently used as a quality control technique to achieve product excellence at the lowest overall cost. It can also function as a powerful tool to optimize food products and/or processes, to accelerate food development cycles, reduce research costs, facilitate the transition of products from research and development to manufacturing and troubleshoot manufacturing problems. Food Product Design: A Computer-Aided Statistical Approach familiarizes readers with the methodology of statistical experimental design, and its application in food product design, with the aid of commonly available modern commercial software. Food Product Design presents basic concepts of food product design, then focuses on the most effective statistical techniques and corresponding computer applications for trial design, modeling, and experimental data analysis. The book presents very few theories about mathematics and statistics. Instead, it contains detailed descriptions of how to use popular computer software to solve the real mathematical and statistical problems that occur in product design. Even those with very limited knowledge of statistics and mathematics will find this a useful and highly practical book. Food Product Design: A Computer-Aided Statistical Approach will be a valuable tool for professional food engineers, technologists, scientists, and industrial personnel who want to update and expand their knowledge about computer-aided statistical methods in the field of food product design. Those involved in applied research at universities in food and agriculture, biological and chemical engineering, and statistics will also find it useful and informative.
