Long chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) present numerous health benefits. Nevertheless, the consumption of natural products rich in omega-3 PUFA (e.g. fish, krill, and algae) is not enough to reach the daily-recommended values. Therefore, food industry is highly interested in producing omega-3 fortified foods. Omega-3 Delivery Systems gives the reader an insight on the most recent updates for developing, characterizing and stabilizing both traditional and novel omega-3 delivery systems, as well as their final incorporation into food matrices and physicochemical changes during digestion. The book brings chapters on novel omega-3 delivery systems (e.g. high-fat emulsions, Pickering emulsions, electrosprayed capsules, solid lipid nanoparticles), the application of advances techniques to evaluate physical and oxidative stabilities (e.g. SAXS, SANS, ESR, super-resolution fluorescence microscopy), and new developments of food enrichment and physicochemical changes during digestion. The book provides a unique multidisciplinary and multisectoral (having authors from industry and academy) approach. Brings a holistic approach of omega-3 delivery systems, bringing scientific understanding on production, physical characterization and oxidative stability Covers key aspects to develop, characterize and use omega-3 delivery systems for food enrichment, considering physicochemical changes occurring during digestion Serves as an interface between lipid oxidation and colloids chemistry, encapsulation techniques, soft matter physics, food development and nutrients bioavailability
Omega-3 fatty acids provide many health benefits, from reducing cardiovascular disease to improving mental health, and consumer interest in foods enriched with omega-3 fatty acids is increasing. Formulating a product enriched with these fatty acids that is stable and has an acceptable flavour is challenging. Food enrichment with omega-3 fatty acids provides an overview of key topics in this area. Part one, an introductory section, reviews sources of omega-3 fatty acids and their health benefits. Chapters in part two explore the stabilisation of both fish oil itself and foods enriched with omega-3 fatty acids. Part three focuses on the fortification of different types of foods and beverages with omega-3 fatty acids, including meat products, by the modification of animal diets and other methods, infant formula and baked goods. Finally, part four highlights new directions in the field and discusses algal oil as a source of omega-3 fatty acids and labelling and claims in foods containing omega-3 fatty acids. Food enrichment with omega-3 fatty acids is a standard reference for professionals in the functional foods industry involved with research, development and quality assessment and for researchers in academia interested in food lipids, oxidation and functional foods.

Unlike the many other books on omega-3 fatty acids, Long-Chain Omega-3 Specialty Oils is not concerned with nutrition but instead is aimed primarily at those people working to develop, manufacture and market long-chain omega-3 oils and the food, drink and pharmaceutical products containing them. It concentrates on the long-chain acids (C20 chain length and above), rather than alpha-linolenic acid. Although often thought of as 'fish oils', these omega-3 oils are also available from microbial fermentation and from other marine organisms such as krill. Furthermore, there is increasing interest in the development of higher plants with the ability to synthesise long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, with the ultimate objective of creating crop plants yielding oils containing EPA and DHA. Long-Chain Omega-3 Specialty Oils starts with an overview of omega-3 fatty acids, including a discussion of how they are formed in plants and animals, the physiological and medical effects of omega-3 acids, and the importance of chain length. This is followed by chapters discussing the wide variety of fish oil sources, as well as oils from fermentation of single-cell organisms. Separate chapters give information on state-of-the-art processing of fish oils, methods for making concentrates of omega-3 acids, and enzymatic processing and concentration strategies. The next two chapters cover the stabilization and utilization of omega-3 oils for various applications, followed by a chapter dealing with the challenging aspects of analysis of omega-3 acids and their decomposition products. The next chapter is dedicated to regulatory issues, and the final chapter gives an up-to-date survey of the various markets for long-chain omega-3 acids.
This book addresses new applications of omega-3 fatty acids from both plant and marine sources in food supplements and pharmaceuticals and covers three basic areas: structure and function, production and processing, and health effects. The authors review the latest clinical evidence on the impact of consumption of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on prevalent human diseases such as inflammation-related illnesses in general and cardiovascular illnesses in particular. They also examine technologies to purify marine oils and protect them against oxidation as well as novel techniques for their incorporation into foods. Covers the role omega-3 plays in general health and disease and includes several reviews on the latest clinical evidence Explains different methods to deliver omega-3 to the consumer, through various methods including food fortification, nutritional supplements, and more Considerations for the processing of omega-3 oils to minimize conditions that could destroy the nutrtional properties.

This book highlights the important role free fatty acids (FFA) play as potential drug targets. While FFA have long been considered byproducts of cell metabolism, they are now recognized as ligands that regulate cell and tissue function via G-protein-coupled receptors. At least three receptors have been identified for which FFA appear to be the endogenous ligands.
