Special Issue "Cereal Grains for Human Health"
A special issue of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2015)
The purpose of this Special Issue, “Cereal Grains for Human Health”, is to provide an extensive summary on the current knowledge regarding the role of whole grain consumption in decreasing the risk of major non-communicable diseases, including cardiometabolic disorders and certain cancers, based on epidemiological investigations and dietary intervention trials. The associations of known biomarkers of whole grain consumption with risk factors of chronic diseases will be addressed. In particular, the potential cellular mechanisms encompassed in the health protective effect will be discussed, and the knowledge of the potential bioactive constituents including dietary fiber, as well as phytochemicals, from different whole grain species will be reviewed. Finally, the role of inter-individual differences in metabolic responsiveness to dietary whole grains will be addressed.
