Scientists, public health experts, food producers and consumers have united to generate functional food research that allows the public to increase their knowledge about how functional foods can help to age in a healthier manner.

This book presents not only innovative functional food ideas for managing healthy aging, but also the processes and scientific research which lead to these modern yet time-honored management methods. This research lays the foundation for a field of science that promises to expand in coming years, potentially changing modern society’s relationship with aging.

This cornerstone guide, written by internationally recognized functional, medical, and bioactive food experts, covers the basics of functional food science. With more than 800 scientific references, this book provides scientists, medical doctors, nutritionists, food technologists, and students majoring in biology, nutrigenetic, food science fields, and public health professionals with a comprehensive and up-to-date examination of functional foods.
