Contents:
The optimal human diet: theoretical foundations of the Amen Protocol / Nun Sava-Siva Amen-Ra -- Sustainable scenarios for upstream waste reduction in the food chain / Carlo Vezzoli and Fabrizio Ceschin -- Non-thermal technologies for preservation of acidic fruit products / Hilario Cuquetto Mantovani and Ana Andrea Teixeira de Carvalho -- Bacteriocin : food biopreservative / Nivedita Sharma, Neha Gautam and Hitender K. Sharma -- Electron beam treatment as a non-conventional preservation method of nutritional supplements based on vegetal materials / Monica R. Nemtanu, Mirela Brasoveanu -- Dietary omega-3 fatty acids and asthma: is there a connection? / Timothy D. Mickleborough and Martin R. Lindley -- Diet and food allergies in children / John D.F. Molloy and Jonathan O'B. Hourihane -- Food preservation with electron beam / Kristen E. Matak and Jacek Jaczynski -- Nutrition and diabetes mellitus type 1: a brief overview / Abdullah Al-Abdulhadi and Rossana Salerno-Kennedy -- Diabetes mellitus type 1 and eating disorders: a brief overview / Steven Laragh and Rossana Salerno-Kennedy -- Research on industrial fermentation from Thailand: a summary / Viroj Wiwanitkit.
Summary: "The book explores the central elements of a theoretically optimal human diet. The scientific studies and basic biochemical and physiological principles that form the theoretical and empirical bases of such a diet are reviewed. This book also examines the issue of food safety, which is a subject of international concern. In particular, food spoilage and pathogenicity are discussed as they are major issues of every food processing industry. Furthermore, non-thermal properties, such as high hydrostatic pressure, pulsed electric field, ionizing radiation and the use of natural antimicrobial additives, which have shown great potential to control foodborne pathogens, are explored. A range of promising directions and hypotheses of how to prevent, reduce and valorise food and packaging waste (sustainability oriented scenarios and system concept)- within supermarkets, fruit and vegetable markets and family homes are also outlined in this book. The effects of certain kinds of foods on health is an important topic and one that is a major focus of this book. The evidence for the health effects of omega-3 fatty acids (i.e., in fish oil) on asthma and airway hyperresponsiveness are discussed and analyzed. The nutritional aspects that may influence Diabetes Mellitus Type 1 (T1D) are also looked at, as well as the effects of food allergies in the diet of children."--Publisher's description.
