Phenolic Compounds in Foods and Natural Health Products

One of Memorialís most prolific authors and editors continues to churn out publications. Dr. Fereidoon Shahidi is the editor of four new titles: Phenolic Compounds in Foods and Natural Health Products, edited with Dr. Chi-Tang Ho; Asian Functional Foods, edited with Dr. Ho and John Shi; Seafood Quality and Safety, edited with Benjamin K. Simpson; and Food Flavour and Chemistry, edited with A. M. Spanier, T. H. Parliament, C. Mussinan, Dr. Ho and E. Tratras Contis.

Published by the American Chemical Society, Phenolic Compounds in Foods and Natural Health Products reviewed and gave new research discovery of the chemistry, analysis and health effects such as antioxidative, cancer preventive and anti-inflammatory properties of phenolic compounds in foods and natural health.

Asian Functional Foods covers the biochemistry, nutrition, physiology, and food technology for a wide range of traditional Asian foods. Seafood Quality and Safety provides extensive new information on these developments, as well as research directions and challenges for the future.

Food Flavor and Chemistry: Explorations into the 21st Century provides the reader with an update on the advances in food chemistry and flavor science with a broad spectrum of food products from both plants and animals.
