International experts combine to present research on a variety of topics, including advanced analytical techniques; the role of flavonoids in diet: possible links between dyslexia, dyspraxia and attention deficit disorder and the metabolism of fatty acids; the influence of dietary fatty acids in coronary heart disease; and lipids and obesity.
