In the early 1980’s, the Japanese were the
first to recognize dairy components as
having significant contributions to
“physiologically functional foods.” Since
then there has been an increasing number of
investigations that have supported this view.Current evidence for the health benefits of
most dairy foods and dairy components is
based primarily on in vitro and in vivo
animal studies. Human clinical studies are still needed in

Revised and updated to reflect the latest research and advances available, Food Biotechnology, Second Edition demonstrates the effect that biotechnology has on food production and processing. It is an authoritative and exhaustive compilation that discusses the bioconversion of raw food materials to processed products, the improvement of food quality, the importance of food safety, the design of ingredients for functional foods, and the biochemical advances made in traditional fermentation. It also provides an international perspective on the discipline as a whole.
Dairy products form the major part of functional foods. To understand their
success it is important to know that milk is a natural and highly nutritive part of a
balanced daily diet. Designing and developing functionality in dairy-based products
simply means modifying and/or enriching the healthy nature of the original base.
This chapter is a brief introduction to the composition of milk and the nature of
fermented milk products. It also gives a few definitions and introduces some of the
functional dairy products on the market.
The study of food and nutrition covers many disciplines including agriculture, biology, physics, chemistry, food technology, nutrition, and medicine. As research of the links between food and health continues to expand, it is more important than ever that specialists in such areas as food processing and nutrition be familiar with often unfamiliar terminology that differing disciplines use.

Enzymes may be described as 'functional catalytic proteins'. I do hope, however,
that this volume will re-introduce them as useful and targeted workforces.
Like the more familiar human workforces, they have preferred working
conditions, may be trained (cultured) to carry out very specific tasks, and
they cannot function when their food (substrate) runs out.
Over the last few decades the prevalence of studies about probiotics strains has dramatically grown in most regions of the world. Probiotics are specific strains of microorganisms, which when served to human or animals in proper amount, have a beneficial effect, improving health or reducing risk of getting sick and the probiotics are used in production of functional foods and pharmaceutical products.
Engineering and Food for the third millenniumthat is compliant with the requirements
of globalization and new technologies, is one of the most significant additions to the
Food Preservation Technology Series. This bookis the result of a tremendous effort by
the authors, the publisher and editors to put together, as never before, a comprehensive
overview on what is current in food engineering.
Food and water are necessary to keep the human body functioning. People
must have a balanced diet that includes a complex range of nutrients to provide
energy, promote growth, maintain health and resist disease or illness, and
It is also known that food and water can carry, or be sources of, harmful
microorganisms, chemical compounds and particulate matter.
It has been recognized for many years that states of nutrient deficiency are associated
with an impaired immune response and with increased susceptibility to infectious
disease. In turn, infection can affect the status of several nutrients, thus setting
up a vicious circle of under nutrition, compromised immune function and infection.
Nutrigenomics, proteomics and metabolomics are three
new disciplines that will contribute to the rapid development
of functional foods. Bioinformatics is a new tool that uses
computer database technology to integrate data from
multiple, and sometimes disparate, disciplines. Already
these disciplines and tools have improved our understanding
of food science and human nutrition. Discoveries in genetics
make it possible to understand the effects of nutrients in
processes at the molecular level in the body and also the
variable effects of dietary components on each individual.
Additionally, demography is especially of interest to marketers as it is important to see how pop-
ulation is changing in number and distribution of gender, age and other demographic characteris-
tics and variables. Family structure, marriage and divorce rates of individual counties also have
effects on consumption habits; for example, couples with children have many more health con-
cerns when buying food than singles.
