Nutraceuticals, the fourth volume in theNanotechnology in the Agri-Food Industryseries, is an invaluable resource for anyone in the food industry who needs the most current information about scientific advances in this field. Nutraceuticals are gaining significant attention because of their apparent safety, as well as their nutritional and therapeutic uses.

Scientific indications have reinforced dietary interposition as an effective implement for a healthy lifestyle. Bioactive components have been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, hypocholesterolemic, hypoglycemic, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic roles in the living system. Research professionals, professors, and students will all find this book useful.

  • Includes the most up-to-date research on nanotechniques and the applications most useful in the food industry
  • Presents various natural and synthetic polymer-based nanoparticulate systems and their conjugates to the food industry including proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and other biopolymers for applications
  • Provides uses of nanoparticle uptake in ingredients as well as the potential side effects of nanoparticle carriers
  • Covers potential benefits and methods of risk assessment for food safety
