Customer Reviews



5 out of 5 stars, Alison: Educational, professional and well formatted, Reviewed in the United States on November 8, 2019.

 This book includes knowledge on functional food components, including antioxidants, dietary fibers, prebiotics, plant sterols, bioactive peptides, and flavonoids. The book discusses the most recent developments in nutrigenomics, molecular biology, and epidemiology, and the production, marketing, and distribution of functional foods.

  • The charts and pictures were conducive to learning.
  • This book was well formatted and professional looking.
  • I definitely recommend using this text in course work.



5 out of 5 stars; Marilyn Pereira: An invaluable resource, Reviewed in the United States on November 11, 2019.

This textbook does a excellent job at presenting ingenious information focusing in the field of mental health. By explaining bioactive components found in food, and how food can offer health benefits alongside nutrition. Through the chapters one can see how focused the information is at mentioning potential solutions for mental disorders and other mental concerns. The layout is easy to follow and is presented in a manner that makes finding specific information simple. A useful instrument for both professional and students alike.



5.0 out of 5 stars: Lauren S.  Engaging and informative; worth every dollar! Reviewed in the United States on November 12, 2019

This book had a clear, organized structure that made it easy to follow. Being an undergraduate student with lots of required texts to read, I personally lose interest in books that present irrelevant or uninteresting topics. However, I was engrossed in every chapter of this book and learned a lot of cool stuff! Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in functional foods, mental health, or both!

COVID-19 Update

Here at Functional Foods Center we have been working hard to expand our understanding of the coronavirus and how functional foods and bioactive compounds play a role in the fight against this global pandemic. Our focus is on functional foods and bioactive compounds and how they can enhance and support the immune system. A strong immune system is an important factor in the management and defense against viral diseases like coronaviruses.

We are curious how pre-existing conditions, diet, education, and demographics impact the virus from country to country. We believe understanding the statistics related to these factors will help us better understand how to fight COVID-19 and other viruses.
