These foods are said to provide positive health benefits over and above normal nutrition. But what is the evidence for these claims? Functional Foods II: Claims and Evidence brings together the latest scientific research on a range of functional food ingredients. Key topics include: * plants as functional foods, including phytoestrogens, plant sterols and isoflavones * pre- and probiotics * micronutrients, including folic acid and PUFAs * setting up clinical trials of functional foods Functional Foods II: Claims and Evidence fills an important gap in the published literature, which has tended to concentrate on marketing rather than scientific issues. As such, it will be an invaluable resource for all those working on functional foods, whether in industry or academic research.
