High Oleic Oils: Development, Properties and Uses is the first complete reference to address practical applications for this new and dynamic category of fats and oils that are essentially replacing partially hydrogenated oils in a variety of food and non-food uses. As a category, high oleic oils are highly stable, but like other fats and oils, there are differences in the composition and applications of the various types of high oleic oils. Their compositions allow for the production of a range of frying oils, increased shelf-life foods, functional shortenings and hard fats, and even industrial products not easily produced with non-high oleic oils. Information and know-how on these applications and advantages has been in high demand and short supply until now. Based on extensive commercial experience, seminars and presentations, Editor Frank Flider has identified common customer questions, needs and concerns about high oleic oils and addresses them in this single comprehensive volume outlining development, composition and utilization of high oleic oils. Through the individual expertise of a highly qualified team of contributing authors, High Oleic Oils: Development, Properties and Uses outlines the development, composition and utilization of these oils, making it of value to a wide range of readers, including the research and development industry and academic researchers. Details the development and technology behind today's high oleic crops and oils as well as the history and background of many naturally occurring oleic oils Describes high oleic oils' nutritional and compositional advantages over PHOs and lower oleic oils Presents unbiased, non-commercial, science-based and objective insights, deliberately balanced to represent high oleic oil varieties equally Addresses transgenic insights as well as new state-of-the-art and future development technologies
Epidemiological studies have continued to increase awareness of how trans fats impact human nutrition and health. Because of the adverse effects, trans fats labeling regulations were introduced in 2006. Since then, the fats and oils industry and food product manufacturers have researched and implemented a number of novel, practical, and cost-effective solutions for replacing trans fats with alternate products. This book provides a comprehensive understanding of the trans fats chemistry, labeling regulations, and trans fat replacement technologies. It also deals with world-wide trends and scenarios in terms of regulations and trans fat replacement solutions. Includes details on how trans fats became a part of our food chain, why they remain a health issue, and what replacement solutions exist Offers in-depth analysis of the structure, properties, and functionality of fats and oils Describes trans fats regulations and scenarios in different geographies around the world
In recent years, the food industry has made substantial advances in replacing partially hydrogenated oils, high in trans-fatty acids, in foods. Trait-modified oils were then developed to produce trans-fat free, low saturated functional oils. Trait-modified Oils in Foods offers top line information on the sources, composition, performance, health, taste, and availability of modified next generation oils. Coverage extends to public policy development, discussions of real world transition to healthy oils by food service and food processing industries and the future of trait-modified oils. The book provides solutions to food companies with the potential of improving the health benefits of foods through eliminating trans-fats and reducing saturated fats from formulations. A landmark resource on modified next-generation, trait-modified oils, this book is essential reading for oil processors, manufacturers and producers, as well as any professional involved in food quality assurance and public health.

Chemoprevention is currently regarded as one of the most promising avenues for the control of cancer, with human epidemiological and animal studies indicating that the risk of cancer may be modified by changes in diet. Over 100 papers are collected in this volume, the proceedings of the International Conference on Food Factors: Chemistry and Cancer Prevention, held in Hamamatsu, Japan, in December 1995. Special emphasis is placed on chemical, biological, and molecular properties of phytochemicals in teas, fruit, vegetables, herbs, and spices, and on their potential for cancer prevention. Also discussed are the cancer-preventive effects of vitamins, lipids, carotenoids, flavonoids, and other components of diet. The findings presented here will be invaluable to all who are interested in diet and cancer prevention, and especially to biochemists, pharmacologists, food scientists, and nutritionists.
Although the true economic impact of genetic modifications is yet to be realized, the potential of this new technology to benefit the food processing industry and to improve food quality is enormous. Specific genetically modified whole foods and food ingredients that have recently become available or are about to become available are described and discussed in relation to their technical performance and consumer acceptance. The regulatory, ethical and communication issues in food biotechnology are also reviewed. As the products of gene technology come on stream, decisions need to be made as to whether or not to use them. Yet, many food industry professionals have little or no background in biotechnology and have a limited concept of possible applications in foods. Therefore, this book aims to foster a greater understanding of the benefits and potential pitfalls of this new technology.

Empowering strategies to improve lymphedema with therapeutic exercises and supporting recipes. Lymphedema treatment is an expanding topic on a condition that has been historically misunderstood and underdiagnosed. The condition is characterized by fluid retention and chronic swelling that significantly impacts the daily lives of approximately 10 million North Americans. It can be caused by infection, injury or genetic disorder and may occur as a complication of cancer treatment. In The Complete Lymphedema Management and Nutrition Guide, physiotherapist Ann DiMenna and dietitian Jean LaMantia share their expert knowledge of the condition, explaining its link with diet and exercise. Together they offer lifestyle adjustments and self-management strategies that may help those living with lymphedema gain control of their conditions, lessen their symptoms and improve the overall quality of their lives. This is an essential guide for anyone experiencing symptoms of lymphedema. The book includes expert information on underlying causes, symptoms, effective treatments and therapeutic exercises supported by both clinical and scientific research. It offers a friendly, easy-to-understand approach with step-by-step photographs and illustrations along with supplementary videos hosted on the authors' site. It also delivers over fifty recipes to support an anti-inflammatory diet characterized by low sodium, low fat, adequate fluid and sufficient protein.

Industrial Oil Crops presents the latest information on important products derived from seed and other plant oils, their quality, the potential environmental benefit, and the latest trends in industrial uses. This book provides a comprehensive view of key oil crops that provide products used for fuel, surfactants, paints and coatings, lubricants, high-value polymers, safe plasticizers and numerous other products, all of which compete effectively with petroleum-derived products for quality and cost. Specific products derived from oil crops are a principle concern, and other fundamental aspects of developing oil crops for industrial uses are also covered. These include improvement through traditional breeding, and molecular, tissue culture and genetic engineering contributions to breeding, as well as practical aspects of what is needed to bring a new or altered crop to market. As such, this book provides a handbook for developing products from renewable resources that can replace those currently derived from petroleum. Led by an international team of expert editors, this book will be a valuable asset for those in product research and development as well as basic plant research related to oil crops. Up-to-date review of all the key oilseed crops used primarily for industrial purposes Highlights the potential for providing renewable resources to replace petroleum derived products Comprehensive chapters on biodiesel and polymer chemistry of seed oil Includes chapters on economics of new oilseed crops, emerging oilseed crops, genetic modification and plant tissue culture technology for oilseed improvement
