Book Description :

Omega-3 fatty acids provide many health benefits, from reducing cardiovascular disease to improving mental health, and consumer interest in foods enriched with omega-3 fatty acids is increasing. Formulating a product enriched with these fatty acids that is stable and has an acceptable flavour is challenging. Food enrichment with omega-3 fatty acids provides an overview of key topics in this area. Part one, an introductory section, reviews sources of omega-3 fatty acids and their health benefits. Chapters in part two explore the stabilisation of both fish oil itself and foods enriched with omega-3 fatty acids. Part three focuses on the fortification of different types of foods and beverages with omega-3 fatty acids, including meat products, by the modification of animal diets and other methods, infant formula and baked goods. Finally, part four highlights new directions in the field and discusses algal oil as a source of omega-3 fatty acids and labelling and claims in foods containing omega-3 fatty acids. Food enrichment with omega-3 fatty acids is a standard reference for professionals in the functional foods industry involved with research, development and quality assessment and for researchers in academia interested in food lipids, oxidation and functional foods.

Book Description :

There is increasing evidence in studies conducted over recent decades that numerous health benefits are associated with the consumption of long chain omega-3 (u03c9-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCu03c93PUFA) throughout the human lifecycle(1). This has created a demand for functional food products enriched with LCu03c93PUFA. Nanoemulsions, systems with extremely small droplet sizes have been shown to increase LCu03c93PUFA bioavailability(2). However, nanoemulsion creation and processing methods may impact on the oxidative stability of these systems due to small lipid droplet sizes and large droplet surface areas(3). This study aimed to systematically review published literature that focused on the oxidative stability of LCu03c93PUFA nanoemulsions suitable for integration into food vehicles. The review followed the PRISMA checklist for systematic reviews. Searches were conducted and titles and abstracts screened for relevance by two independent review authors (KEL, LB or LS). Studies were included in the review if they evaluated the oxidative stability of LCu03c93PUFA nanoemulsions suitable for food enrichment and were published from January 2007 to July 2017. The search criteria identified 1880 articles, which were reduced to 1403 upon abstract and title screening. Further application of inclusion/exclusion criteria led to the identification of 17 key studies. Researchers used a range surfactants and antioxidants to create systems which, were evaluated during 7 to 100 days of storage. Nanoemulsions were created using high and low power methods with synthetic and natural emulsifiers. Natural emulsifiers offered equivalent or increased oxidative stability compared to synthetic sources, which is useful as consumers are demanding natural, cleaner label food products(4). LCu03c93PUFA source oils evaluated included fish (n = 9), flaxseed (n = 2), algae (n = 3), krill (n = 2), walnut (n = 1). Equivalent vegetarian sources of LCu03c93PUFA to those found in fish oils such as algal oils show potential as they provide direct sources without the need for conversion in the human metabolic pathway. Quillaja saponin is a promising natural emulsifier that can produce nanoemulsion systems with equivalent/increased oxidative stability in comparison to other emulsifiers particularly when additional antioxidants are used. Further studies to evaluate the oxidative stability of quillaja saponin nanoemulsions combined with algal sources of LCu03c93PUFA are warranted to enable the development of safe, clean label functional food products.

Book Description :

This unique publication for the first time brings together scientists from academia, government and industry to discuss the role of omega-3 fatty acids in health, the need to reintroduce them into the food supply, the methods by which this can be accomplished and the state of research. With the domestication of animals, there has been a change in animal feeds, which in turn transformed the composition of meats, particularly the content of essential fatty acids. Changes similar to those in meats have occurred in the composition of eggs, poultry and in fish from aquaculture. Up-to-date reviews on the role of omega-3 fatty acids in health, cardiovascular disease, bone remodeling relative to osteoporosis and in patients with retinitis pigmentosa emphasize the need for a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in the food supply. The reintroduction of omega-3 fatty acids into food products is discussed, and the methods involved in their production as well as their metabolic effects on human beings and companion animals are outlined. Overall, the papers presented indicate the necessity to establish recommended daily intakes for both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Furthermore, there is a need to redefine food safety; changes in food composition must also be taken into consideration. This unique publication is a valuable source for physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, veterinarians and agriculturalists, as well as for all those concerned with aspects of food production, food technology, food policy and consumer issues.

Book Description :

The emergence of the discipline of encapsulation and controlled release has had a great impact on the food and dietary supplements sectors; principally around fortifying food systems with nutrients and health-promoting ingredients. The successful incorporation of these actives in food formulations depends on preserving their stability and bioavailability as well as masking undesirable flavors throughout processing, shelf life and consumption. This second edition of Encapsulation and Controlled Release Technologies in Food Systems serves as an improvement and a complement companion to the first. However, it differentiates itself in two main aspects. Firstly, it introduces the reader to novel encapsulation and controlled release technologies which have not yet been addressed by any existing book on this matter, and secondly, it offers an in-depth discussion on the impact of encapsulation and controlled release technologies on the bioavailability of health ingredients and other actives. In common with the first edition the book includes chapters written by distinguished authors and researchers in their respective areas of specialization. This book is designed as a reference for scientists and formulators in the food, nutraceuticals and consumer products industries who are looking to formulate new or existing products using microencapsulated ingredients. It is also a post-graduate text designed to provide students with an introduction to encapsulation and controlled release along with detailed coverage of various encapsulation technologies and their adaptability to specific applications.

Book Description :

Omega-3 fatty acids are quite beneficial for human health. These play a vital role in lowering blood cholesterol, blood triglycerides and, hence, blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids are helpful in preventing heart diseases, skin diseases and auto immune disorders. The daily intake of 0.5 to 1.0 gram omega-3 fatty acids is recommended for an individual for a healthy life. The food industry is taking steps to return these healthful fatty acids to the human diets. In this regards, poultry meat and eggs can serve the purpose if enriched with omega-3 fatty acids. Laying hens have the ability to absorb and deposit dietary fatty acids without considerable modification in the composition. Thus, the lipid metabolism in the hens permits the fortification of eggs with omega-3 fatty acids by dietary supplementation to increase the provision of these fatty acids which are appropriate for human consumption. This book provides the necessary information about the enrichment of eggs with omega-3 fatty acids by supplementing linseed oil and canola oil to the diets of laying hens. These oils are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids and readily promote the deposition of omega-3 fatty acids in the eggs.
