Carolyn Ivy (carolynivystein) Can we add another shelf for food science? I'm reading a book I would like to add The World of Caffeine The Science and Culture of the World's Most Popular Drug and it caused me to realize that some of my favorite books blend science, history and food.

me too, which is your favorite?

I liked Sugar Blues but love 4 Blood Types, 4 Diets, Eat right for your type. I also read lots of food allergy books.

Sarah Jane I also read a really good one about gluten intolerance/sensitivity a few years back, but I can't seem to remember the name of it. It was pre-Goodreads.

I have numerous books on celiac disease since I was told I have it. The best one was: Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic. Does that sound familiar?

Tracy Black | 39 comments Has anyone read Twinkie Deconstructed? It always has such mixed reviews, so I've been bypassing it, but it still sounds interesting.

I'm reading it now. The one thing about it is that it's written by someone with no science background - so if you have a science background, be prepared to scoff a few times. Otherwise, it's interesting.

I'll be reading a lot of food science books this summer - I'm teaching a 3-credit course on Food Chemistry this coming fall. One of my favorites so far is McGee's "On Food and Cooking" - excellent reference for any foodie.

Dan Pettus The Devil's Cup A History of the World According to Coffee was a great food, science, history book as well.
