What is physicochemical analysis of food?

Ruby Talbot   |   Member since 2019  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

Among the types of tests are: verification of contaminants, chemical composition, texture analysis, viscosity level, presence or quantity of pesticides, moisture, energy values, vitamins and minerals. The analysis should normally occur within a short period after collection to avoid compromising the collected material.

Just so, what is physicochemical analysis?

The term Physicochemical analysis was introduced in [1] and defined as the field of chemistry dealing with the interrelation between the composition and properties of matter [1].

Also Know, what is the food analysis? Food analysis is a diverse and interdisciplinary field of research that has a significant health, societal and economic impact. It aims to characterize food products in terms of chemical composition, traceability, safety, quality, sensory perception and nutritional value.

What is physico chemical treatment?

Physico chemical treatment involves using chemicals which can modify physical state of colloidal particles which helps in making them more stable and coagulable for further treatment or filtration purposes. These treatment methods have been used for over a century in conjunction with biological treatment methods.

What are rheological properties of food?

The rheological properties of liquid food are altered based on the thermal properties such as density, heat capacity and thermal conductivity. The most important factors which determine the properties of liquid food are shear flow properties. These are based on shear rate and shear stress.

Why is pH a chemical property?

Acidity is a chemical property because it is a measure of the presence of a particular chemical, the H+ ion (hydrogen with a positive charge. Water, H2O, is a combination of H+ and OH-, and is neutral, both electrically, and in pH, the measure of acidity. The pH will be less than 7, and the solution will be acid.
