Tables of Contents for 1982-1993

Beginning in 1979, programs on food microstructure took place at annual Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) Meetings. Thirty six papers published in various SEM volumes have been compiled to form a book entitled Studies of Food Microstructure. The papers have been divided into 4 general areas:
1. general applications
2. meat foods
3. milk products
4. foods of plant origin
The table of contents is at the end of this page. Publication of the book preceded establishing the new journal, Food Microstructure.
FOOD MICROSTRUCTURE was established as an international scientific journal on the microstructure and microanalysis of foods, feeds, and their ingredients in 1982 in the USA by food scientists:
  • S. H. Cohen (Sci. & Adv. Tech. Lab., US Army Natick R&D, Natick, MA)
  • E. A. Davis (Dept. Food Sci. & Nutr., Univ. of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN)
  • D. N. Holcomb (Kraft Inc., Glenview, IL)
  • M. Kaláb (Food Res. Inst., Agriculture Canada, Ottawa, Ont., Canada)

The journal was published initially twice a year by Scanning Electron Microscopy, Inc., AMF O'Hare (Chicago), IL, under the direction of Om Johari, Managing Editor. In 1990, the title of the journal was changed to FOOD STRUCTURE and the publication frequency was increased to 4 issues per annum. W. J. Wolf (USDA Northern Regional Research Center, Peoria, IL) joined the journal as another editor in 1991. I. Heertje (Unilever Research Laboratorium, Vlaardingen, the Netherlands) served as the European editor and K. Sato (Department of Applied Biology, Hiroshima University, Shitami, Japan) took editorial care of manuscripts arriving from Asian countries. Food structure studies flourished. Irrespective of this success, however, Om Johari terminated publishing the journal in 1994 without giving any reason. This means that Vol. 12 is the last one. Manuscripts submitted for publication in FOOD STRUCTURE were later published in FOOD SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY (LWT) by Academic Press.

All manuscripts were peer-reviewed. Almost all authors responded in writing to reviewers' comments in the form of a 'discussion with reviewers'. Alternatively they revised their manuscripts. In addition to critically evaluating former achievements in the particular fields, all review papers also contain new information provided by the authors.

The table of contents published in Food Microstructure and later in Food Structure is being provided to assist food microscopists in their search for topics of interest. Journal issues may be found in food science libraries at various universities under ISSN 0730-5419, CODEN - FMICDK (Food Microstructure, 1982-1990) and ISSN 1046-705X, CODEN - FSTUE2 (Food Structure - 1991-1993).
