With contributions from leading figures in industry and academia, this book reviews key issues in the design of health-promoting foods. It begins with an examination of oral physiology and gut microbial ecology, then focuses on the digestion, absorption, and physiological effects of significant food components. It discusses advances in methods to study food sensory perception, digestion and absorption, including in vitro simulation of the stomach and intestines and the use of stable isotopes to determine mineral bioavailability. The book concludes with coverage of the implications of these new advances in the design of functional foods.
