Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The British Dietetic Association, Volume 19, Issue 4, August 2006

“…the strength of his book still lies in providing a concise overview of substances to be used in supplements and functional foods. The succinct chapter on natural products and extracts is very valuable and up-to-date. I would recommend this book as a reference to students from a variety of health-related disciplines. Also, dietitians and health practitioners could update their general knowledge on dietary supplements and function foods. For scientists, the book is an attractive source of basic information in a concise format.” Reviewed by Nynke de Jong, The British Dietetic Association, Volume 19, Issue 4, August 2006

“The additional value of the book compared with a standard book of reference lies in the valuable synopsis material applicable to dietary supplements, especially the natural products and extracts, and functional foods.” Reviewed by Nynke de Jong, The British Dietetic Association, Volume 19, Issue 4, August 2006
