Understanding the basics of other professionals' expertise will improve mutual understanding and communication. It will help to ask the right questions at the right moment to the right person. Each chapter is dedicated to one of the food sciences. It provides the basics in terms of scope, terminology, methods, and content. It is placed in a dynamic context by addressing recent developments and ongoing debates."
