Overview

This symposium brought together scientists from academia and industry studying food factors as they relate to human health. In the first of 37 original research and review papers, Shahidi (Memorial U. of Newfoundland) overviews bioactive compounds in food that research indicates play a role in disease prevention, including antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Other contributors discuss chemicals in tea, fruits, and vegetables; their bioavailability; mechanisms of action; biomarkers, and animal models. However, there is no mention of the promising research on probiotics ("good bacteria") in yoghurt and acidophilus milk. Distributed by Oxford U. Press. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
