PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION.



During the five years that have elapsed since the appearance of
the first edition, much progress has been made in food control work
both in America and in Europe. In the United States the passage of
the national pure food law, perhaps more than any other single factor,
has contributed toward this, and has itself been the direct cause of
ncreased activity on the part of many of the States. New standards
have been adopted, many new methods have been tried out and found
useful, and in some cases old ones have been displaced.

The most important of these changes and improvements have, it is
believed, been embodied in the present edition, and include new material
and modern methods of analysis covering a wide variety of subjects.
Notable among these are meats and meat extracts, flour (including
methods for determining the grade and for the detection of bleaching)
noodles and Italian pastes, paprika, prepared mustard, tea, coffee, cocoa
products (including milk chocolate), ice cream, maple products, honey,
oils (including the Polenske number and Bomer's phytosterol-acetate
test for vegetable oils), distilled liquors, preservatives (notably benzoic
acid), etc,

A separate chapter on the refractometer, its varieties and application
to food analysis has been introduced; also a separate chapter on flavor-:
ing extracts, including the lesser used extracts of almond, peppermint,
wintergreen, rose, cassia, and cloves.

At the time the importance of a new edition seemed specially mani-
fest, the author's health was such that it would have been impossible
for him to personally undertake the work, and had it not been for his
friends it could not have been accomplished. Indeed, the work of
revision has been due to the untiring energy of Dr. A. L. Winton, Chief
of the U, S. Food and Drug Inspection Laboratory at Chicago, who
out of a busy life has taken entire charge of the details of the task,



vi PREFACE.

supplying most of the new material, as well as introducing much that
is original as a result of his ripe experience. To him, therefore, above
all others, the author here expresses his deep appreciation and gratitude.

Special thanks are also extended to Dr. W. D. Bigelow, Chief of the
Division of Foods of the Bureau of Chemistry, Washington, for his
substantial work in revising the chapter on flesh foods, which includes
much of his recent research along this line; also to Dr. T. B. Osborne,
Chairman of the Committee on Protein Nomenclature of the American
Physiological Society and of the Society of Biological Chemists, who
has revised the classification of nitrogenous bodies; and finally to Mr. E.
J. Shanley for his help in reading proof.

Denver, Colorado, September, 1909.



PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION.



In the preparation of the present work, the requirements of the public
analyst are mainly kept in view, as well as of such officials as naturally
cooperate with him in carrj'ing out the provisions of the laws dealing
with the suppression of food adulteration in states and municipalities.
To this end special prominence is given to the nature and extent of adul-
teration in the various foods, to methods of analysis for the detection of
adulterants, and to some extent also to the machinery of inspection.

While the analyst may not in all cases have directly to deal with the
minutlcB of food inspection, his work is so closely allied therewith that
this branch of the subject is of vital interest and importance to him.
Indeed, in many smaller cities one official often has charge of the entire
work, combining the duties of both inspector and analyst.

Endeavor has been made, furthermore, to deal with the general com-
position of foods, and to give such analytical processes as are likely to
be needed by the sanitary chemist, or by the student who wishes to
determine the proximate components of food materials.

It has been thought best to include brief synopses of processes of
manufacture or preparation of certain foods and food materials, in cases
where impurities might be suggested incidental to their preparation.

In view of the fact that Massachusetts was the pioneer state to adopt,
over twenty years ago, a practical system of food and drug inspection,
and for many years was the only state to enjoy such a system, no apology
is perhaps needed for more frequent mention of Massachusetts methods
and customs than those of many other states, in which the food laws
are now being enforced with equal zeal and efficiency.

Considerable attention has been paid in the following pages to the
use of the microscope in food analysis. Of the figures in the text illus-



viu PREFy4CE.

trating the microscopical structure of powdered tea, coffee, cocoa, and
the spices, fifteen have been reproduced from the admirable drawings
of Dr. Josef Moeller, of the University of Graz, Austria. Acknowledg-
ment is gratefully given Dr. Moeller for his kind consent to their use.

The photomicrographs in half-tone, forming the set of plates at the
end of the volume, were all made in the author's laboratory, and may
be divided into three classes: ist, illustrations of powdered pure foods
and food products, as well as of powdered adulterants; 2d, types of
adulterated foods, chosen from samples collected from time to time in
the routine course of inspection; and 3d, photographs of permanently
mounted sections of foods and adulterants.

While recent works covering the whole field of general food analysis
are comparatively few, the number of treatises, monographs, government
bulletins, and articles scattered through the journals, dealing with special
subjects relative to food and its inspection, is surprisingly large, and from
a painstaking review of these much information has been culled, for which
it has been the author's intention at all times to give credit.

Special mention sliould here be made of the valuable publications of
the U. S. Department of Agriculture, both the bulletins issued from
Washington, and those from the various experiment stations, an ever-
increasing number of which are becoming engaged in human food
work. The author has freely drawn from these sources, and especially
from the data and material furnished by his coworkers in the recent
and still pending labor of preparing food methods for the Association of
Official Agricultural Chemists, and he wishes to extend his thanks to
all of them for their assistance. Appreciation is also expressed for the
care and discrimination shown by Mr. L. L. Poates in the preparation of
the cuts. Thanks are especially due to Mr. Hermann C. Lythgoe,
Assistant Analyst of the Massachusetts State Board of Health, for his
invaluable cooperation, and to Dr. Thomas M. Drown for helpful hints
and suggestions.
