Book Review

 

 

Sensory Science – Principles and Applications in Food Evaluation by V. K. Joshi, Agrotech Publishing Academy, Udaipur, 11-A Vinayak Complex-B, Durga Nursery Road, Udaipur-313 001, India, First Edition, 2006, ISBN: 81-8321-053-8, Price: Rs. 2980, USD 150, pp. 600.

 

            Sense of selecting any food material and other utility items is intimately associated with our lives. The science dealing with this system is called sensory science which plays a significant role in animal as well as plant science. It s role is very important in evolving new fruit, vegetable, flower and many processed natural products. Though it is applied traditionally and by virtue of God gifted sense, it is essential to understand and conduct the evaluation process in scientific manner to achieve reproducible results. The book is absolutely timely, since it deals elegantly with all the principles and applications.

 

            The present book under review is a compilation of research information scattered in various journals. The matter has been presented in a descriptive manner with explanatory headings and subheadings with special focus on practical aspects of sensory quality evaluation of food during production, processing and marketing. It is a unique synthesis of anatomy and physiology of sense organs, food science, chemistry, psychology, instrumentation and statistics, within the purview of sensory science. The contents of the book have been demarcated in three major sections: (I) Sensory science General, (II) Organisation and Functioning of Sensory System and (III) Sensory Evaluation Set-up and Techniques of Analysis. The sections are further divided into 16 chapters, out of which first eight have dealt with the introduction (importance of sensory science), structure and organization of human sensory organs, mechanism of sensory perception, etc. The chapters from 9-16 are devoted to practical aspects such as methods of sensory analysis, analysis of colour and appearance, evaluation of aroma, analysis of texture, evaluation of taste and overall quality, statistical analysis in sensory evaluation, applications of sensory evaluation, etc.

 

            The author has made sincere attempt to provide basics of the subject including structure of sensory system in human body and discussed functioning also to help beginners. It will serve as a valuable source of information/knowledge for agriculture/floriculture students, researchers and natural health practioners. It is equally good for industry for manufacturing standard products. ThE book which we can call a practical guide will surely prove useful reference book.

            Glossary and subject index provided at the end have added value to the book and will be useful to researchers and students. Each chapter is appended by more than 100 references which will surely help in the further work. Overall, I appreciate the quality and quantity of information on untouched topics. It is recommended to all who are in the field of drug discovery and development in general and especially to those who are associated with postharvest technology.
