Nutrition plays a key role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Diet influences a broad spectrum of cardiometabolic risk factors, notably a cluster including excess adiposity, dyslipidemia, impaired glucose metabolism and high blood pressure. In the face of the rapidly increasing incidence of obesity and diabetes, maintaining cardiometabolic health through adoption of a healthy lifestyle is a top public health priority.

In this book, Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health, international experts present state-of-the-art scholarly reviews of dietary and lifestyle effects on metabolic systems associated with cardiovascular health and disease. It covers a broad range of topics including biological and behavioral processes regulating food intake; lifestyle and surgical approaches to weight loss; nutritional considerations for optimal cardiometabolic health across the lifespan; the relationship of macronutrients, whole foods and dietary patterns to diabetes and cardiovascular disease; and diet as a modulator of gene expression, epigenetics and the gut microbiome and the relationship of these traits to disorders of metabolism. This book provides its readers with an authoritative view of the present state of knowledge of dietary effects on cardiometabolic health and will be of interest to nutrition and healthcare professionals alike.

Edible Films and Coatings

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Edible Films and Coatings
Mar 052018
 

This books opens with a review of the latest advances in edible film composition, including the use of macromolecules in the structural matrix, bioactive compounds, diffusion, and application in food systems. Continuing, the authors investigate edible coatings based on natural polymers (soy protein-SPI and potato starch) considering the effect of process variables such as drying temperature and time. Kinetic modeling was used to study the drying behavior of potatoes after applying the coating. The Fick equation was considered to calculate the mass diffusivity. The following chapter describes cases of application of edible coatings, based on hydrocolloids, in different types of food and evaluates their impact in the shelf life of those food products. A study is presented wherein edible films were developed from cassava starch, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, glycerol as plasticizer, and the antimicrobial potassium sorbate. Oregano powder was added in order to obtain composite films. A mechanical test was performed until rupture and the parameters elastic modulus, stress, and strain at rupture were obtained. The potential application of WPC-based edible coatings with Origanum virens essential oils, as antimicrobial and antioxidant agent, is presented as a case study in two traditional Portuguese sausages. WPC-based edible films were prepared by heat-induced gelation using the conventional solvent casting method. The effect of glycerol as plasticizer and the addition of plant extracts or essential oils to the films is addressed to assess their effect on the film properties. Afterwards, the authors describe the hydrocolloids and essential oils that can be used in the production of active packages, as well as their benefits. The use of essential oils in biofilms has inhibited the growth of several microorganisms, such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enteritidis, Listeria monocytogenes, and Lactobacillus plantarum. In the final presented study, vegetable foods were prepared from blanched Cucurbita moschata Duchesne ex Poiret and enriched with probiotics, particularly Lactobacillus casei or enriched with probiotics and fortified with iron (Fe). In order to extend the shelf life of the product, it was tested with the application of edible coatings combined, and not combined, with a drying process.

Tropical Fruits

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Tropical Fruits
Mar 052018
 

Pineapple (Ananas comosus (L.) Merril) is the major representative fruit of bromelains, cultivated in tropical and subtropical areas in developing countries. The knowledge of plant taxonomy, enzymes, antioxidants, or microbiology is beneficial to human health. Likewise, various industrial applications of pineapple-based products have led both developing and developed countries to grow dependent on the tropical fruit. The targeted audience of this book includes researchers and professional horticulturists interested in increasing the comprehension of not just the nutritional values of pineapple, but also about the technology employed to preserve the freshness of this fruit.

The organization of the chapters and sections is also straightforward; Chapter One presents what a pineapple (Ananas comosus (L.) Merril) is, its taxonomy, distribution, origin, and morphology. Concluding the first part, Chapters Two and Three show the nutritional and medical values, stability and the potential therapeutic aspects of pineapples. In the second part of the book, the readers should find the relevant aspects of industrial preservation in Chapters Four, Five, Six and Seven, which talk about the harmful effects of UV and gamma radiation to freshness. Chapters Eight and Nine9 discuss postharvest conservation.

 The U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as “uncertainty of having, or unable to acquire enough food to meet the needs of their members because of insufficient money or other resources for food at times during the year”. This book discusses patterns, prevalence and risk factors of food insecurity. Chapter One synthesizes the current literature on the prevalence, contributing factors and, the consequences of food insecurity in the United States; and presents a model framework to demonstrate the intersection of these consequences with health in vulnerable populations, as well as the implications for primary health care. Chapter Two explores why it is important for healthcare professionals to learn about food insecurity. Chapter Three commences with a brief description of the concepts and measurements of food insecurity, and presents the burden of food insecurity among the general population, and among HIV- infected, and HIV-affected populations. Chapter Four studies markets, methods, and options for improving safety and supply security of artisanally fished omena in Lake Victoria in Kenya

Similarly, pet owners considering the switch to organic pet food will enjoy reading about this emerging market and will receive vital information to help them in their decision making

Reviews:
“This book presents important and useful insights pertaining to organic food marketing. In a market where both consumer interest in as well as confusion about these products is high, this book provides perspectives and guidance to scholars, practitioners, policy makers, and consumers on how to make more informed decisions and, consequently, enhanced choices about organic foods. This compilation of views weaves together the divergent and sometimes competing themes that exist about these products such as despite consumer beliefs that organic foods are better for them, consumers also dismiss as marketing hype the information on organic food labels. The result of this book’s assembling of organic food marketing viewpoints is an interesting, compelling, and needed synthesis of this divergent topical area.” – Les Carlson, Nathan J. Gold Distinguished Professorship in Marketing, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

“This book offers an expansive primer into the growing and rapidly evolving world of organic food production, marketing and consumption.

Dietary Reference Intakes: Guiding Principles for Nutrition Labeling and Fortification

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Dietary Reference Intakes: Guiding Principles for Nutrition Labeling and Fortification
Feb 212018
 

Since 1997, the Institute of Medicine has issued a series of nutrient reference values that are collectively termed Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs). The DRIs offer quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes to be used for planning and assessing diets. Using the information from these reports, this newest volume in the DRI series focuses on how the DRIs, and the science for each nutrient in the DRI reports, can be used to develop current and appropriate reference values for nutrition labeling and food fortification.

Focusing its analysis on the existing DRIs, the book examines the purpose of nutrition labeling, current labeling practices in the United States and Canada, food fortification practices and policies, and offers recommendations as a series of guiding principles to assist the regulatory agencies that oversee food labeling and fortification in the United States and Canada. The overarching goal of the information in this book is to provide updated nutrition labeling that consumers can use to compare products and make informed food choices. Diet-related chronic diseases are a leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States and Canada and helping customers make healthy food choices has never been more important.
