Food Quality and Standards is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The Theme on Food Quality and Standards is so organized that it starts first the necessity of food quality control and food legislation and standards is explained and focuses on problems of food safety and connection between adequate nutrition and health. This is continued with food safety aspects which are strongly connected with good agricultural practice (GAP) and good manufacturing practice (GMP) and also prevention of food-borne diseases. The system and organization of food quality control at government -, production- and private (consumer) level is treated. Methods of quality control and trends of their development are also briefly discussed. Quality requirements of main groups of food with special aspects of functional foods, foods for children and specific dietary purposes are overviewed. Finally some international institutions involved in this work are presented. For readers interested in specific details of this theme an overview is given about microbiology of foods ( including industrial use of microorganisms in food production and food-borne pathogens) and food chemistry ( focused on nutrients and some biologically active minor food constituents). These three volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Radomir Lásztity D.Sc., Professor of the Department of Biochemistry and Food Technology at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, was born in 1929 in Deszk, Hungary, ended his studies in 1951 at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering of the Technical University of Budapest.
