Functional Foods and Their Implications for Health Promotion presents functional foods, from raw ingredients to the final product, providing a detailed explanation on how these foods work and an overview of their impact on health. The book presents the functions of food against disease and discusses how healthier foods can be produced. Broken into four parts, the book presents a deep dive into plant-derived functional foods, dairy foods, marine food and beverages. The book includes case studies, applications, literature reviews and coverage of recent developments.
Intended for nutritionists, dieticians, food technologists, as well as students and researchers working in nutrition, dietetics, and food science, this book is sure to be a welcomed resource.
- Uses flow diagrams to highlight the effects of processing on produced functional foods
- Combines information on the production/formulation of the food with data on bioactivities and bioavailability
- Presents whole foods and not food components while also focusing on functionality and availability

Ioannis Zabetakis has studied and worked in Greece, United Kingdom and Ireland. Originally a chemist, he fell in love with food science (sensory and functional properties of food). After an academic career at the Universities of Leeds and Athens spanning 15 years, where he developed a strong interest in lipids and cardiovascular diseases, Ioannis joined the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland. In UL, the ongoing focus of his work is on the cardioprotective properties of food lipids with a particular emphasis on dairy and marine foods. With >75 papers and two patents, his quest is toward a healthier diet and lifestyle that will render us less dependent on medicines. http://scieng.ul.ie/departments/life-sciences/people/dr-ioannis-zabetakis Twitter Handle: @yanzabet

Ronan Lordan carried out his undergraduate studies at the University of Limerick, graduating with a first-class honors Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences and Education in 2015. Ronan taught Leaving Certificate Biology and Chemistry in Irish second-level schools before returning to the University of Limerick in 2016 to begin his PhD scholarship to study the role of dietary polar lipids in inflammation and cardiovascular disease. Ronan has lectured on various topics including lipids chemistry, genetics, and health. Ronan has published several peer-reviewed papers. His research interests include: (a) elucidating the structures of bioactive polar lipids in various foods; (b) developing novel functional foods and nutraceuticals against cardiovascular disease; and (c) discerning the mechanisms of platelet-activating factor-induced systemic inflammation. Ronan is the process of completing his PhD. Twitter Handle: @el_ronan

Alexandros Tsoupras has studied (BSc, MSc, PhD) and worked as a chemist and biochemist since 2002 in several academic and research institutions in Greece, the United States, and Ireland (i.e., the University of Athens, the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, the Directorate of the Environment of the Region of Attica, Albany Medical College, the University of Limerick, etc.). He has participated in research regarding the implication of inflammation on several chronic disorders, such as CVD, cancer, renal disorders, chronic infections, etc. His main interests concern not only the beneficial pleiotropic effects and side effects of several drugs, such as statins, antibiotics, antiretrovirals, etc., but also the beneficial effects of nutraceuticals, food supplements, and bioactive microconstituents of natural origin, such as those derived from healthy foods, microorganisms of biotechnological interest, and several medicinal plants, on inflammatory disorders. Alexandros’ beliefs lie on appropriately using and improvising the existing naturally derived “weapons” of a healthy dietary pattern and lifestyle toward the prevention of chronic disorders to improve our quality of life. His motto is "As long as we have the opportunity, let us do our best for the good of all in the short time given to us". Twitter Handle: @bioflips

Dipak Ramji is Professor of Cardiovascular Science at the School of Biosciences in Cardiff University. He received his BSc (Hons) degree (Biochemistry) and his PhD (Molecular Biology) from the University of Leeds. This was followed by post-doctoral research at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Heidelberg) and the Istituto di Ricerche di Biologia Molecolare P. Angeletti (Rome) with fellowships from the Royal Society and the EU. His research is focused on understanding how natural products regulate cellular processes in heart disease with the goal of attaining deeper mechanistic insight and identifying preventative/therapeutic agents. He has published over 150 research articles and is an Editorial Board member of 16 international journals; regular organizing committee member, speaker and track/session chair at international conferences on heart disease; involved in grant evaluation for over 20 organizations; and supervised over 25 PhD students.
