Book Review - Biotechnology in functional foods and nutraceuticals

  • Asim K. Duttaroy

Abstract

Our understandings of the relationships between food, physiological function, and disease have progressed well in recent years. Nutrients and other biologically active substances in herbals, for instance, are major constituents of functional foods, nutraceuticals, and dietary supplements that make them instrumental in maintaining health, act against various disease conditions, and thus promote the quality of life. The explosive growth, research developments, lack of standards, marketing zeal, quality assurance, and regulation play a vital role in its future success.
