"Easy to find one's way around, meticulously organized, and written from a truly international perspective." -- Tecnica Molitoria
"In my opinion, this is an excellent reference work, comprehensive and comprehensible...It will become a popular and well-used reference work in libraries, and be of great use to lecturers and students of food in general. However, it also provides readers who have a much wider range of interests with a valuable source of information. A work to be recommended." -- K.D.A. Taylor in Food Chemistry
"The present work must now be considered the definitive encyclopedia in the field...There are several features that make this encyclopedia easy to use. There is generous use of "see" references in the body of the Encyclopaedia...Another helpful feature is that in the long, segmented articles, bibliographies appear after the appropriate segment, instead of at the end...The level of detail is exceptional." -- Journal of Agricultural & Food Information
"With almost 5000 pages of text it is hard not to find what you want in this absolutely brilliant encyclopedia...None can compare with the wealth of information provided here...The Encyclopaedia is likely to be a valuable addition to any library." -- BNF Nutrition Bulletin
