A compendium of cutting-edge information for research scientists and clinicians
Nutraceutical Proteins and Peptides in Health and Disease is the first book that provides comprehensive discussions on bioactive proteins and peptides in the area of nutraceutical and functional foods. It looks at protein and peptide impact on the body's absorption, defense, regulating, and nervous systems, then delves into hypo-allergenic foods and modern approaches to nutraceutical research and production. With 32 chapters written by 63 scientists working at the frontier of this revolutionizing field, it includes state-of-the-art information on--
The cholesterol-lowering capabilities of proteins and peptides
The antibodies found in milk and egg yolks
Enzymes derived from traditional Asian fermented foods found useful in novel thrombolytic therapy
Enzymatic treatments used to create anti-allergenic food
Recent developments in proteomics that are making certain processes economically feasible, including those employed in the binding of bioactive peptides
Nutraceutical Proteins and Peptides in Health and Disease provides a compendium of cutting-edge information that can be put to direct use in research, therapy, and production. Biochemists, nutritional scientists, food scientists, and health professionals, as well as graduate students in these fields, will find this book highly useful.
