Food Chemistry (where to start?)

  1. Feb 25, 2013 #1
    I have an interest into looking into the chemistry that goes into making the foods today. I'd like to know what goes into the tastes and smells. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as a good jumping off point for this topic. Any articles or books would be great. I have access to SciFinder so any articles on that would be great. Thanks for your help and suggestions everyone.
