Bioactive Proteins and Peptides as Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals highlights recent developments of nutraceutical proteins and peptides for the promotion of human health. The book considers fundamental concepts and structure-activity relations for the major classes of nutraceutical proteins and peptides. Coverage includes functional proteins and peptides from numerous sources including: soy, Pacific hake, bovine muscle, peas, wheat, fermented milk, eggs, casein, fish collagen, bovine lactoferrin, and rice. The international panel of experts from industry and academia also reviews current applications and future opportunities within the nutraceutical proteins and peptides sector.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a very interesting reference book on the importance of bioactive proteins and peptides for their physiological role and the overall health benefits to human well-being. This is a new addition with many important and detailed features to the well-known subject of functional foods and neutraceuticals." (International Journal of Dairy Technology, 2 May 2011)

"This text brings together current scientific knowledge on biologically active food proteins and peptides for health promotion and reduction of the risk of chronic diseases, or "nutraceuticals." (SciTech Book News, December 2010)
