Summary note:
"The nutraceutical and functional food field is rapidly growing in diverse sectors, including academic, commercial, and government. This has brought a corresponding shift in research focus and in public awareness. Understanding the relevance of the scientific principles in determining the safety and effectiveness of functional foods and nutraceuticals is increasingly important. It is becoming increasingly evident that genomic research technologies will be used in the coming years and there is a need to provide resources that will facilitate this growth. Genomics, Proteomics & Metabolomics in Nutraceuticals & Functional Foods incorporates the most recent advances in the three major sectors of the field within one volume. Genomics, proteomics, and metobolomics represent three major scientific research areas that contribute to nutraceutical and functional food research for studies of effectiveness and safety."--BOOK JACKET.
