Novel Food Ingredients for Weight Control
edited by C. J. K. Henry

Features of Novel Food Ingredients for Weight Control:

  • reviews research into the production and use of specific ingredients which can help to control body weight
  • provides food industry professionals with essential information about particular ingredients that are effective in weight management
  • valuable reference for nutritionists and food industry professionals

Part 1 discusses ingredients implicated in the development of obesity such as sugars and lipids and the bodys response to hunger and satiety.

Part 2 addresses particular ingredients derived from grains, fruit and vegetables, which can assist weight control. Chapters cover -glucans, oligosaccharides, starch and carbohydrates.

Part 2 details dairy-based ingredients which can help regulate weight. It covers the use of food constituents such as calcium, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and trans-free oils and fats.

Contents
