The International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) has announced the publication of a new book, “Present Knowledge in Food Safety: A Risk-Based Approach Through the Food Chain”, which presents approaches for risk assessment related to the exposure and management of food contamination at the main manufacturing stages.
“The ILSI Federation is delighted to support everyone – from students to experts – in these important areas to enhance their work and research for the public good,” said Stéphane Vidry, Ph.D., Global Executive Director of the HE IF. “Enhancing food safety and public health is one of ILSI’s core values, and it is alive and well in the release of this new book.
The book aims to improve the reliability, predictability and relevance of food safety assessments, as well as their communication challenges, in order to protect public health.
The book includes 72 chapters written by more than 110 authors. Conceptually modeled on the ILSI book, “Present Knowledge in Nutrition”, this book covers new and emerging science in the risk assessment paradigm applied to chemical, physical and microbiological safety issues.
Published by Elsevier, this new book contains information on:
- Innovative technologies, such as nanotechnology, genetic modification and cloning.
- Advances in pathogen risk assessment using new real-time molecular biology techniques, biomarkers, resistance measurement and cell-to-cell communication in the gut.
- The role of the microbiome and the use of substitutes, especially for viruses.
The book was designed to be a frontline resource for experts, researchers, scholars, instructors, graduate students, and postgraduate students in food science, toxicology, microbiology, chemistry, medicine, public health, and related fields. related.
