Steviol Glycosides: Production, Properties, and Applications illustrates the health effects of steviol glycosides, presenting methods to preserve their stability, bioactivity and bioavailability during handling, extraction and processing. Beginning with biosynthesis, metabolism and health uses, the book also explores agronomic practices, toxicology and pharmacology, leaf drying, conventional techniques, non-thermal technologies, green recovery, membrane clarification technologies, chemical and enzymatic modifications, stability studies and food applications.
This book is an excellent resource for food scientists, technologists, engineers, chemists, nutritionists, new product developers, researchers and academics with an interest in understanding steviol glycoside applications in the development of functional foods, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals.
