By Semih Otles (auth.), Peter Ho, Maria Margarida Cortez Vieira (eds.)

The ISEKI-Food publication sequence is a set the place a variety of points of nutrition security and environmental concerns are brought and reviewed by way of scientists focusing on the sector. In the entire books a unique emphasis is put on together with case experiences acceptable to every particular subject. The books are meant for graduate scholars and senior point undergraduate scholars in addition to pros and researchers drawn to nutrients protection and environmental concerns acceptable to nutrition defense.

"ISEKI-Food" is an acronym for "Integrating safeguard and Environmental wisdom Into nutrition Studies". contributors within the ISEKI-Food community, coordinated by way of Professor Cristina Silva on the Catholic college of Portugal, come from 29 international locations in Europe and many of the institutes and universities concerned with nutrition technological know-how schooling on the collage point in Europe are represented. a few overseas businesses and non educating associations have additionally participated within the community. the most pursuits of ISEKI-Food are to enhance the harmonization of reports in foodstuff technological know-how and engineering in Europe and to advance and adapt meals technological know-how curricula emphasizing the inclusion of protection and environmental topics.

Case reviews in nutrients defense and Environmental Health, the 6th quantity of the ISEKI-Food publication sequence, provides foodstuff defense recommendations and concerns in a realistic and utilized framework to be used within the school room.
