The third volume in the AOCS PRESS MONOGRAPH SERIES ON OILSEEDS is a unique blend of information focusing on edible oils. These oils contain either unique flavor components that have lead to their being considered "gourmet oils," or contain unique health-promoting chemical components. Each chapter covers processing, edible and non-edible applications, lipids, health benefits, and more related to each type of oil. Includes color illustrations of over 20 health-promoting specialty oils Comprehensive resource for the chemical and physical properties and extraction and processing methods of these specialty oils Describes and and includes the health effects of over 50 different oils from plants, algae, fish, and milk

Early anthropological evidence for plant use as medicine is 60,000 years old as reported from the Neanderthal grave in Iraq. The importance of plants as medicine is further supported by archeological evidence from Asia and the Middle East. Today, around 1.4 billion people in South Asia alone have no access to modern health care, and rely instead on traditional medicine to alleviate various symptoms. On a global basis, approximately 50 to 80 thousand plant species are used either natively or as pharmaceutical derivatives for life-threatening conditions that include diabetes, hypertension and cancers. As the demand for plant-based medicine rises, there is an unmet need to investigate the quality, safety and efficacy of these herbals by the “scientific methods”. Current research on drug discovery from medicinal plants involves a multifaceted approach combining botanical, phytochemical, analytical, and molecular techniques. For instance, high throughput robotic screens have been developed by industry; it is now possible to carry out 50,000 tests per day in the search for compounds which act on a key enzyme or a subset of receptors. This and other bioassays thus offer hope that one may eventually identify compounds for treating a variety of diseases or conditions. However, drug development from natural products is not without its problems. Frequent challenges encountered include the procurement of raw materials, the selection and implementation of appropriate high-throughput bioassays, and the scaling-up of preparative procedures. Research scientists should therefore arm themselves with the right tools and knowledge in order to harness the vast potentials of plant-based therapeutics. The main objective of Plant and Human Health is to serve as a comprehensive guide for this endeavor. Volume 1 highlights how humans from specific areas or cultures use indigenous plants. Despite technological developments, herbal drugs still occupy a preferential place in a majority of the population in the third world and have slowly taken roots as alternative medicine in the West. The integration of modern science with traditional uses of herbal drugs is important for our understanding of this ethnobotanical relationship. Volume 2 deals with the phytochemical and molecular characterization of herbal medicine. Specifically, It will focus on the secondary metabolic compounds which afford protection against diseases. Lastly, Volume 3 focuses on the physiological mechanisms by which the active ingredients of medicinal plants serve to improve human health. Together this three-volume collection intends to bridge the gap for herbalists, traditional and modern medical practitioners, and students and researchers in botany and horticulture.

Oilseeds offer a plethora of opportunities for the food and feed industry, thanks to their high oil and protein content . Their phytonutrients and functional components have attracted the interest of researchers, leading to the development of functional foods. This book gathers the latest scientific information on the nutrients, phytonutrients and health benefits as well as the adverse effects of consuming various conventional and non-conventional oilseeds. In addition, each chapter includes a section comprehensively explaining the use of oilseeds in functional bakery, dairy, and other food products. Given its scope, the book is a valuable resource for students, researchers, nutritionists, food scientists and technologists, and for anyone involved in product development based on oilseed and its components.

Specialty Oils and Fats in Food and Nutrition: Properties, Processing and Applications examines the main specialty oils and fats currently in use in food processing, as well as those with significant potential. Specialty oils and fats have an increasing number of applications in the food industry, due to growing consumer interest in “clean label functional foods and the emerging markets in “free-from and specialist foods. Part One of this book covers the properties and processing of specialty oils and fats, with a focus on the chemistry, extraction, and quality of different fats and oils, including chapters on shea butter, tropical exotic oils, and structured triglycerides. Part Two looks at the applications of specialty oils and fats in different food and nutraceutical products, such as confectionary, ice cream, and margarine. Specialty Oils and Fats in Food and Nutrition is a key text for R&D managers and product development personnel working in the dairy, baking, and dairy analogue sectors, or any sector using fats and oils. It is a particularly useful reference point for companies reformulating their products or developing new products to alter fat content, as well as academics with a research interest in the area, such as lipid scientists or food scientists. Authored by an industry expert with 35 years of experience working for Unilever and Loders Croklaan Broad coverage encompasses tropical exotic oils, tree nut oils, algal oils, GM vegetable oils, and more Addresses growing application areas including nutraceuticals, infant formula, and ice cream and confectionery
