9780471471288: Encyclopedia of Common Natural Ingredients: Used in Food, Drugs, and Cosmetics

Now in its revised and expanded Second Edition, the Encyclopedia of Common Natural Ingredients stands as the most authoritative reference for natural ingredients in commercial use. This new edition addresses the increased interest in natural ingredients over the past decade, especially in health foods-a category that includes food products, over-the-counter drugs, and herbal teas.
The Encyclopedia encompasses approximately 500 of the most commonly used ingredients, and covers the identification, processing, preparation, and manner of use for each. Following the current demand for products that alleviate stress and other lifestyle-related conditions, this volume emphasizes the drugs and herbal formulations created for those purposes.
Expanded to twice the size of its predecessor, the Second Edition updates all the original entries of the first edition, and incorporates many new entries, classifications, references, and a new category, Health Foods/Herbal Teas.
The inclusion of a new classification on Chinese medicinal herbs is particularly innovative, offering information that appears here for the first time in English. This classification draws on both classical and modern Chinese medicine and reflects the growing popularity of Chinese herbs in this country and in the rest of the world.
This Second Edition of the Encyclopedia of Common Natural Ingredients will be welcomed by chemists, botanists, and product developers in the cosmetic, food, and drug industries, as well as consumers who need an authoritative, up-to-date source of information on this important field.
