Advances in Biopolymers for Food Science and Technology brings together the latest techniques for the preparation of bio-based polymeric materials for novel food applications. Sections introduce biopolymers and their various polysaccharide and protein sources, addressing biopolymers from marine sources in particular. Food design using biopolymers, and their preparation as gels and composites are then discussed in detail. This is followed by in-depth chapters that guide the reader through specific applications, including fat replacement products, delivery systems, food emulsions, micro- and nano-encapsulation, nanovehicles, nanostructures, nanofilms, antimicrobial peptides, food coatings, food packaging, smart monitoring, cryoprotection, and cultured meat production. Finally, the various challenges regarding sustainability of food packaging are addressed. This is a valuable resource for researchers and advanced students across polymer science, food science, chemistry, packaging, nanotechnology, and materials science, as well as industrial scientists and R&D professionals with an interest in biopolymers for advanced applications in food products and packaging.
