The reduction in nutritional quality of food due to microbial contamination is a problem faced by much of the developing world. To address contamination-related hunger and malnutrition, it is crucial to enforce quantitative and qualitative protection of agri-food commodities after harvesting, as well as to create low cost, rational strategies to protect post-harvest losses and nutritional properties of food products in a sustainable manner. Research and Technological Advances in Food Science provides readers with a systematic and in-depth understanding of basic and advanced concepts in food science and post-harvest technology, including the most up-to-date information about different natural food source sources (of microbial, plant, and animal origin) and their health benefits. It also highlights current research and technological advances in food science related to health, such as personalized food and nutrition, seafood nutraceuticals, meat processing and product development, microbial enzymes for the tenderization of meat, feruloylated oligosaccharides for human health, and the role of microbial antagonistic in post-harvest management of fruit. In addition, the book explores the role of modern tools and techniques such as instrumentation, nanotechnology, biotechnology, ultrasound in food processing and food-omics in food science. Research and Technological Advances in Food Science is an excellent resource for researchers, food scientists, biochemists, pharmacologists, nutritionists, policymakers, and students working in the food science domain. Includes information about different natural sources of food (microbes, plants and animal origin), and their health benefits Highlights current research and technological advances in food science related to health Brings the role of microbial antagonistic, plant volatiles and technological advances in the post-harvest management of food commodities

Book Description :

Almost 10 years have passed since we organized a symposium on functional foods at the ACS national meetings, San Francisco, in 1997. Since then, a large number of studies have been conducted on food components associated with human health. Many symposiums on past research related to functional foods, such as antioxidants, have been held in various countries, including the US, Japan, and numerous European countries. This book based on the symposium "Functional Foods and Health" held in San Francisco on September 2006 includes a summary of past research, current research results, and future perspectives of functional foods. The symposium entitled "Functional Foods and Health" was held-at the Agricultural and Food Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society, 232th National Meetings, San Francisco, California, September 10-14, 2006-to report current research results and perspectives of functional foods. The contributors were experts in the area of functional foods and were selected from many countries. The major countries were Canada, Japan, Spain, Taiwan, and the United States. This book provides valuable information containing overall reviews and perspectives on functional foods, the bioavailability and metabolism of plant and cereal constituents, natural antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, carcinogenesis and anti-carcinogenesis of food constituents, and other miscellaneous food components associated with health effects. This book should be a useful research tool for a diverse range of scientists, including, biologist, biochemists, chemists, dietitians, food scientists, nutritionists, pharmacologists, and toxicologists as well as medical doctors, from academic institutions, governmental institutions, and private industries.
