Far exceeding the dynamic evolution prophesized by the editors of the first edition, food product development outstripped all expectations by incorporating several new phenomena. The demands of aging boomers for food that provides both taste and nutrition, the overwhelming consumer demand for convenience, the rapidly changing landscape of food retailing, and scientific breakthroughs in ingredient, processing, and packaging technology underscore the industry’s propensity for change in the marketing, packaging, and development arenas. Such drastic change demands an up-to-date review of this expanding field. Navigate a Changeable Landscape Driven by the recognition of the interdisciplinary philosophies that underlie this dimensionally volatile landscape, the editors and contributors of Developing New Food Products for a Changing Marketplace hardwire their vision of holistic food product developmentin their breakthroughsecond edition. World class authorities, seven of whom are Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Fellows, present the economic, functional, and novel reasons for developing new products. They go on to discuss formulation, sensory and consumer testing, package design, commercial production and, ultimately, product launch and marketing. Meet the Demands of a Consumer Driven Market Continuing to offer the up-to-the-minute information that made the widely adopted first edition so popular, the second edition introduces new concepts in staffing, identifying and measuring consumer desires, engineering scale-up from the kitchen, lab, or pilot plant; and generating product concepts. Applying insights from real life experience, contributors further probe the retail environment. They cover optimization, sensory analysis, package design, and the increasingly important role of the research chef or culinologistTM in providing the basic recipe.

In The Age of Dignity, thought leader and activist Ai-jen Poo offers a wake-up call about the demographic reality that will affect us all. “We have more senior citizens in America today than we’ve had at any time in our history,” Poo writes, pointing out that more than 14 percent of our population is now over sixty-five; by 2030 that ratio will be one in five. In fact, our fastest-growing demographic is the eighty -five-plus age group—over 5 million people now, a number that is expected to more than double in the next twenty years. This change presents us with a new challenge: how we care for and support quality of life for the unprecedented numbers of older Americans who will need it. Despite these daunting numbers, Poo has written a profoundly hopeful book, giving us a glimpse into the stories and often hidden experiences of the people—family caregivers, older people, and home care workers—whose lives will be directly shaped and reshaped in this moment of demographic change. The Age of Dignity outlines a road map for how we can become a more caring nation, providing solutions for fixing our fraying safety net while also increasing opportunities for women, immigrants, and the unemployed in our workforce. As Poo has said, “Care is the strategy and the solution toward a better future for all of us.”

Oldness: a social construct at odds with reality that constrains how we live after middle age and stifles business thinking on how to best serve a group of consumers, workers, and innovators that is growing larger and wealthier with every passing day. Over the past two decades, Joseph F. Coughlin has been busting myths about aging with groundbreaking multidisciplinary research into what older people actually want--not what conventional wisdom suggests they need. In The Longevity Economy, Coughlin provides the framing and insight business leaders need to serve the growing older market: a vast, diverse group of consumers representing every possible level of health and wealth, worth about $8 trillion in the United States alone and climbing. Coughlin provides deep insight into a population that consistently defies expectations: people who, through their continued personal and professional ambition, desire for experience, and quest for self-actualization, are building a striking, unheralded vision of longer life that very few in business fully understand. His focus on women--they outnumber men, control household spending and finances, and are leading the charge toward tomorrow's creative new narrative of later life--is especially illuminating. Coughlin pinpoints the gap between myth and reality and then shows businesses how to bridge it. As the demographics of global aging transform and accelerate, it is now critical to build a new understanding of the shifting physiological, cognitive, social, family, and psychological realities of the longevity economy.
