This is the latest and most authoritative documentation of current scientific knowledge regarding the health effects of thermal food processing. Authors from all over Europe and the USA provide an international perspective, weighing up the risks and benefits. In addition, the contributors outline those areas where further research is necessary.

About Author

The Senate Commission on Food Safety of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) advises parliaments and public authorities at their request and also acts independently to address questions of food safety. Priority is given to issues relating to the safety of foods, additives, food supplements and novel processing methods. Commission statements are based solely on a scientific perspective. The 20 selected members come from Germany and other European countries.
