Special Issue in Nutrients: Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Intake and Human Health
This Special Issue contains a selection of papers presented at the 1st International Food Bioactives and Health Conference 2016 in Norwich, UK in September 2016. The Special Issue will highlight the following topics:
- Latest evidence of the beneficial effects of food bioactives in humans (Cardiometabolic health, brain health/cognitive function, cancer prevention and interception, gut health, etc.)
- Bioavailability and metabolism of food bioactives (Mechanisms of absorption and metabolism; Role of the gut flora; Quantification and profiling of bioactive metabolites)
- Inter-individual variation in response to food bioactives (Genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors affecting the absorption, metabolism and efficacy of food bioactives)
- Mechanisms of action (Latest research into underlying mechanisms, connecting bioactives with absorption/metabolism through to mechanisms both in and beyond the gut; Use of omics technologies and Identification of novel biomarkers; Novel models for mechanistic studies)
- Functional foods and health claims (Determining effective and safe doses, formulation and delivery, combination products; Health claim regulations, effects of regulations on industry innovation and consumers)
- Bioactive intakes and exposure, novel sources (New and improved methods of analysis for bioactives in foods; Novel sources of bioactives; Databases; New and improved methods for quantifying intakes/exposure including metabolomics approaches and modelling)
