Food Regulation: Law, Science, Policy, and Practice provides an in-depth discussion of the federal statutes, regulations, and regulatory agencies involved in food regulation. After an introduction to U. S. food and drug regulation, it covers current food regulations, inspection and enforcement, international law, the Internet, and ethics. While it contains detailed discussions of policies and case studies, the book is accessible to students and professionals. This is an excellent text for courses in food science, food law, etc., and a practical reference for food industry professionals, consultants, and others.
