An extensively revised and updated second edition this landmark publication… Readily tempts and leads the reader into extended browsing between linked terms and related disciplines. When comparing this dictionary, there is very little competition at all. 

Food & Beverage Reporter, November 2009

I would thoroughly recommend this book to food scientists and technologists throughout the universities, research establishments and food and pharmaceutical companies. Librarians in all such establishments should ensure that they have copies on their shelves. 

International Journal of Dairy Technology, November 2009

A must-own. 

Food Industry News, August 2009

When comparing this dictionary, there is very little competition at all…a very useful resource in the industrial, professional and supporting research areas, as well as for non-food scientists who have supervisory and management responsibility in a food area.
