Presenting a timely overview of the quality, safety and nutrition of today's beers. Written in a highly readable style, the book also looks at ingredients and processes; foam, color and clarity; flavors; and the risks associated with alcoholic beverages. Possible future developments are suggested and quality assurance issues are discussed. A balanced, objective view of topical consumer-related issues is also provided.
For centuries, beer has been a favorite drink throughout the world. The art of brewing has more recently evolved into the science it is today as a result of the increased knowledge of both the ingredients and the process. Considerations such as appearance, taste and the nutritional value of beer are important topics for consumers and brewing scientists alike. This book looks at the chemistry behind those aspects of beer that are of particular interest to beer drinkers, namely flavor and nutritional aspects, in combination with a discussion of maintenance of quality and safety, the areas more relevant to the brewing scientist.
