There is widespread concern amongst consumers about the safety and acceptability of food, and there are clearly communication gasps between consumers, many food professionals and food industry.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The book falls into three sections; attitudes to science, culture and risk perceptions about food; role of the mass media in dealing with the perception of risk in the food supply, including a case study; and lastly, case studies of interactions between scientists and lay people in policy, agriculture and awareness. ... It is useful for food science lecture material as it contains many quotes and anecdotes." (Dr Dave Roberts, Food Australia, Vol. 56 (1-2), 2004)

"The widespread concern among consumers about the safety and acceptability of food is well-known. ... The food scientists must re-examine their position and the limitations to a purely technical approach to these issues. ... This publication is recommended to all interested experts in academia, authorities and industry, because all the contributing authors have not only considered the different aspects theoretically, but also practically and smoothly." (Advances in Food Sciences, Vol. 25 (2), 2003)
