About the Book: The proceedings contain the minutes of the meeting of the 1st Annual Meet, The Indian Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition and the papers presented at the International Conference on Malnutrition and Food Adulteration which was held in Bangalore, 4th August 2012.

The first annual meet and the international conference of The Indian Association of Parenteral and Enternal Nutrition (IAPEN) is organized and hosted by The Department of Biotechnology, M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology in association with The Department of Community Medicine, M.S. Ramaiah Medical College, M S Ramaiah Nursing College and The Department of Food Science and Nutrition, University of Agricultural Sciences on 4th August, 2012 at M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore. This annual meet and conference is coordinated by the Bangalore chapter of IAPEN.

Malnutrition is a complex & multidimensional problem with determinants beyond the health sector. Hence there is a need to bring together experts from various sectors like public health, biotechnology, food science and nutrition etc, on a single platform, to facilitate exchange of knowledge and research updates. This will catalyze promotion of inter-sectoral coordination, so as to arrive at comprehensive and sustainable strategies to address the problem of malnutrition. The aim of the first annual conference of IAPEN will provide such a forum for multidisciplinary interaction on malnutrition. Despite constant interventions from both public and private sector to control malnutrition at community level, evidence points that there exists various challenges and bottlenecks, to decrease its prevalence and severity. It is the need of the hour to arrive at scientific and sustainable solutions to address the same. Hence the theme chosen for the conference is “Prevention and management of malnutrition: Challenges and Solutions”.

The conference received a good number of submissions of which 24 abstracts were selected to be presented. These papers cover a broad range of perspectives on the effects of malnutrition in different contexts including innovative product development for combating malnutrition, novel methods of screening and analysis etc. The conference and these proceedings contribute to the line of research in malnutrition that is concerned with agriculture, biotechnology, food science and health care sector.

About the Book: Because of the recent agitation of the pure food question throughout the country, health officers and food-inspectors, are constantly called upon to test the purity of various foods and this usually involves nothing more than making simple qualitative tests for adulterants. In view of the fact that there is now no text or manual devoted exclusively to the qualitative examination of foods, this little book is offered to those who are interested in this work.

Its aim is to bring together in one small book the best and simplest qualitative tests for all the common food adulterants. It contains a brief statement of the adulterants likely to be found and the reason for their use. It is hoped that it will be specially valuable to food safety labs in furnishing excellent supplementary work in qualitative analysis. But it is hoped that it will find its greatest usefulness in contributing something toward the great pure food reform.

The updated version includes 210 simple protocols collected from The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation Organization, 29 protocols from The Directorate of Prevention and Food Adulteration, Government of Delhi, India and Directorate of Marketing & Inspection (DMI), Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India and 129 protocols from the "Quick test for some adulterants in foods" an instruction manual developed by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, Government of India.
