Produktbeschreibung
Dried fruits serve as important healthful snack items around theworld. They provide a concentrated form of fresh fruits, preparedby different drying techniques. With their unique combination oftaste/aroma, essential nutrients, fibre, and phytochemicals orbioactive compounds, dried fruits are convenient for healthy eatingand can bridge the gap between recommended intake of fruits andactual consumption. Dried fruits are nutritionally equivalent tofresh fruits, in smaller serving sizes, in the current dietaryrecommendations of various countries. Scientific evidence suggeststhat individuals who regularly consume generous amounts of driedfruits have lower rates of cardiovascular disease, obesity, varioustypes of cancer, type-2 diabetes, and other chronic diseases. Driedfruits also have the advantage of being easy to store anddistribute, available around the year, readily incorporated intoother foods and recipes, and present a healthy alternative to saltyor sugary snacks. Dried Fruits: Phytochemicals and Health Effects isdivided into three sections preceded by introductory chapters thatprovide an overview of dried fruits (their composition,phytochemicals and health applications) as well as the cancerchemopreventive effects of selected dried fruits (amla fruits orIndian gooseberries, avocados, berries, mangoes, mangosteens,persimmons, prunes, raisins, kiwi fruits, and other dried fruits).The first section covers the most popular dried berries(blackberries, blackcurrants, blueberries, cranberries, gojiberries, mulberries, raspberries, and strawberries); the secondsection discusses non-tropical dried fruits (apples, apricots,cherries, citrus fruits, figs, nectarines, peaches, pears, prunes,and raisins); and the final section addresses tropical dried fruits(açai fruits, bananas, dates, guavas, papayas, mangoes,passion fruits, and pineapples). Contributors to this volume are internationally renownedresearchers who have provided a comprehensive account of the globalperspectives of the issues relating to phytochemicals and healtheffects of dried fruits. The book will serve as a resource forthose interested in the potential application of new developmentsin dried fruits' nutraceuticals and functional foods.Biochemists, chemists, food scientists/technologists,nutritionists, and health professionals, from academia, governmentlaboratories, and industry will benefit from this publication.Although this book is intended primarily as a reference book, italso summarises the current state of knowledge in key researchareas and contains ideas for future work. In addition, it provideseasy to read text suitable for teaching senior undergraduate andpost-graduate students.
