More good links to information

I'll put these on the side bar eventually too!

There is a new blog from the Royal Society of Chemistry that is highlighting the content of its newest journal, Food and Function.

This is the blurb about the new journal:
Food & Function is a new monthly peer-reviewed journal which provides a unique venue to publish work at the interface of the chemistry, physics and biology of food.

ScopeThe journal focuses on the interaction of food components with the human body, including:
  • The physical properties and structure of food
  • The chemistry of food components
  • The biochemical and physiological actions
  • Nutrition and health aspects of food  
Topics covered in the journal include, but are not limited to:
  • The chemistry and physics of food digestion processes
  • The relationship between the physical properties/structure of food and nutrition and health e.g. nutrient release and uptake
  • Molecular properties and physiological effects of food components (novel ingredients, food substitutes, phytochemicals, bioactives, allergens, flavours and fragrances)
  • Efficacy and mechanisms of bioactives in the body - including biomarkers
  • Effects of food contaminants - including toxicology and metabolism
  • Nutrient physiology/metabolism and interactions
  • The role of nutrition and diet in disease   
It won't be an easy read for the non-scientist home cook but I'll try to glean some gems out of it for you!

The blog should be a bit more accessible.
