The necessity to better understand the functionality and nutrition of biopolymers in foods and to replace synthetic macromolecules with polymers derived from natural resources in order develop a sustainable economy has been an impetus for research on structure/function relationships andapplications for these natural materials. Because of their ability to aggregate, associate, interact and form networks, systems containing biopolymers are extremely complex and elucidating structure/function relationships in these systems is difficult. This symposium series book covers selectedrecent research and developments involving elucidation of networks, protein-polysaccharide interactions; and isolation, characterization, modification and applications of biopolymers.
