chapter  13
Carbohydrates and Starch
Pages 26

Largely due to the major role they play in human

nutrition, the analysis of food carbohydrates has been

dealt with and reviewed by several authors, either as

books or as chapters of books or as scientific papers in

different journals, most notably in the 1990s (1-6). As

an additional contribution to this chapter, and given

its importance in many foodstuffs, special attention

has also been devoted to the analysis of starch (7,8),

albeit through specific, detailed remarks in each

section of the chapter, instead of as an independent

section.
