Nutrigenomics and Proteomics in Health and Disease: Food Factors and Gene Interactions aims to compile the current science based upon nutrigenomics and proteomics in food and health. Coverage includes many important nutraceuticals (food factors) and their impact on gene interaction and health. Following an overview and introduction, several chapters are devoted to genomics/proteomics and specific disease and health conditions. The core of the book focuses on food factors-gene interaction with multiple chapters on lipids; proteins, amino acids and peptides; carbohydrates; carotenoids; phytochemicals; prebiotics and probiotics; and minerals. The book concludes with a section on advanced analytical techniques.
