Abstract: Buckwheat Germplasm in the World offers an overview of this globally important crop, including its general characterization and genetic diversity-particularly in Russia, China, India and Eastern Europe. The book presents the latest research on molecular marker development, genetics and phenotype analysis of new wild buckwheat to examine the nutritional values of this pseudocereal crop. Due to its short growth span, ability to grow at high altitudes and the high quality of its protein content, buckwheat is considered an important crop for addressing global food needs. Ideal for researchers and advanced-level students seeking better understanding of the buckwheat germplasm.
Abstract: Molecular Breeding and Nutritional Aspects of Buckwheat describes the general characterization and genetic diversity of buckwheat (family Polygonaceae, genus Fagopyrum) around the globe (especially in Russia, China, India, and Eastern Europe), the arid and cool regions where it is most frequently consumed, and nutritional information on a variety of buckwheat uses, including tea, groats, flour, and noodles. With detailed information on buckwheat regeneration, genetic transformation, gene function analysis, and the metabolic engineering of bioactive compounds, the book guides readers through a variety of buckwheat varietal adaptations, providing foundation information on which additional research should be conducted. It is divided into four parts, including genetic resource and phylogenetic relationship, food nutrition, growth and cultivation, and molecular breeding, with each section providing insights into the most current developments. Addresses all aspects of buckwheat research, including genetic resources, biological nutrition, genetic transformation, and molecular breeding Presents global characterization on the genetic resource of Fagopyrum, giving researchers insights that will help them breed new cultivars Explores the bioactivity of buckwheat Includes detailed information on the environmental factors that affect the growth and production of buckwheat.

Abstract: Dietary supplements made from foods, herbs and their constituents are a rapidly growing market sector. Consumers often view food supplements as “natural” and therefore safe; however, supplements are regulated as foods rather than as pharmaceuticals and so are not as closely monitored as may be necessary. With the commercial market in these products growing, this book provides essential research into their safety, efficacy and potential risk of interaction with pharmaceuticals. Following an introductory chapter, part one covers the chemical composition, manufacture and regulation of dietary supplements. Part two looks at the effectiveness of different types of dietary supplement and methods of evaluation. Finally, part three focuses on supplement safety.
Abstract: This report is the result of the workshop “Emerging risks and early warning system” held in Wageningen, the Netherlands on October the 19th 2006. The workshop is part of the project “Emerging risks in Dutch food chains”. The purpose of this project is to develop a procedure to identify potential risks in the food chain in an early stage allowing pro-active intervention on the identified risk. The aim of this workshop was to learn form each others’ experience and knowledge on early warning systems, to define the contours of a future Early Warning System, to discuss the role of the stakeholders and their perceptions on emerging risks and to exchange information on emerging risks and early warning systems
Abstract: In this report six case studies are carried out on food-safety and animal-health crises that have occurred in the recent past. The aim is to learn from these cases if and how the identification of emerging food-safety (and animal-health) risks can be improved by adopting a (more) pro-active approach
Abstract: This report consists of 3 major parts: 1) an overview on the trends and market expectations, 2) the definition of communicative packaging concepts for perishable products, 3) the implementation of the first packaging concept in the form of a case study: the tomato production and distribution chain from Europe to the USA market.
Abstract: De Tijd-Temperatuur-Indicatoren zijn een van de meest gesteste vormen van intelligente verpakkingen. Twee typen worden onderscheiden, namelijk de informatiedragers en de indicatoren voor productkwaliteit. Een aantal aspecten bemoeilijkt vooralsnog de implementatie
