Obesity and its associated metabolic diseases are problematic for public health around the world. To find novel ingredients and foods to help control obesity and its associated metabolic diseases, scientists in various fields have been intensively studying potential functional ingredients and foods from mainly natural sources with the expectation of lower toxicity compared to synthetic compounds and/or drugs to treat metabolic diseases. With the increased consideration to well-being, even the healthy population has become a consumer for the functional foods. Although more research is required to understand the mechanisms of action of the functional ingredients and foods in manipulating the metabolic diseases, their potential health beneficial effects could improve public health as well as promote primary industry with higher added value.
This Special Issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) aims to collect the current knowledge on functional ingredients and foods and diet-induced obesity and its associated metabolic diseases using both therapeutic and preventive approaches. Original research papers, reviews, case reports, brief reports, and communications are all welcome in this Issue.
