Glucose syrups (commonly known as corn syrups in North America) arederived from starch sources such as maize, wheat and potatoes.Offering alternative functional properties to sugar as well aseconomic benefits, glucose syrups are extremely versatilesweeteners, and are widely used in food manufacturing and otherindustries. They are a key ingredient in confectionery products,beer, soft drinks, sports drinks, jams, sauces and ice creams, aswell as in pharmaceuticals and industrial fermentations. This book brings together all the relevant information on themanufacture and use of glucose syrups. Drawing on fortyyears’ experience in the international glucose industry, theauthor provides a valuable reference for all those involved in theprocessing and buying of these syrups, and for scientists involvedin the manufacture of a full range of food (and some non-food)products in which the syrups are ingredients. The emphasis is onpractical information - recipes are included where relevant in theapplications chapters, and appendices offer commonly-usedcalculations and useful data. Food technologists can use the bookto make choices about the most suitable glucose syrup to use in aparticular application, and also to adapt recipes in order toreplace sugar (sucrose) or other ingredients.

Leben wir in der Zeit oder lebt die Zeit vielleicht nur in uns? Alle theoretischen Physiker von Weltrang, die den großen und kleinen Kräften des Universums nachspüren, beschäftigen sich immer wieder mit der entscheidenden Frage, was Zeit ist. Wenn ihre großen Modelle die Zeit zur Erklärung des Elementaren nicht mehr brauchen, wie kommt es dann, dass sie für unser Leben so wichtig ist? Geht es wirklich ohne sie? Carlo Rovelli gibt in diesem Buch überraschende Antworten. Er nimmt uns mit auf eine Reise durch unsere Vorstellungen der von der Zeit und spürt ihren Regeln und Rätseln nach. Ein großes, packend geschriebenes Lese-Abenteuer, ein würdiger Nachfolger des Welt-Bestsellers "Sieben kurze Lektionen über Physik".
