FoodProcessing.com ushers in the new year with an addition to the site: an Ingredient Wiki.
A wiki, in case you’re wondering, is a community-supported mechanism that allows web site users to contribute content. Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/) is probably the most famous one. Our wiki currently contains a few dozen ingredients, descriptions and related terms. But we need more. A lot more. Before we ask your help in populating it, you should give it a try.
First, it’s alphabetized; you can look up everything from anthocyanins to zeaxanthine. Don’t know your alpha-linolenic acid from your alpha-lipoic acid? Look ’em up here. You can find the wiki on FoodProcessing.com in one of three ways: by the URL http://community.foodprocessing.com/ingredients-glossary; from our drop down menu (Topics > Ingredients & Formulation > Ingredients Wiki); or by looking mid-way down the front page of our site.
Actually, it doesn’t have everything from A to Z. That’s where you come in. We want you to contribute to our Ingredient Wiki, to help grow it. If you’re expert enough in a topic, please help define other ingredients for us. Here’s how to do that:

Most importantly, if you have any questions, please contact me and let me know how I can help you. Together, we can make this a valuable resource for the whole food and beverage manufacturing community.
FoodProcessing.com is the go-to information source for the food and beverage industry. We offer processing best practices as well as new products, equipment and ingredients for food and beverage processors.
