  • Dietary Fatty Acids and the Metabolic Syndrome: A Personalized Nutrition
           Approach
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 September 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Sarah O'Connor, Iwona Rudkowska Dietary fatty acids are present in a wide variety of foods and appear in different forms and lengths. The different fatty acids are known to have various effects on metabolic health. The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a constellation of risk factors of chronic diseases. The etiology of the MetS is represented by a complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Dietary fatty acids can be important contributors of the evolution or in prevention of the MetS; however, great interindividual variability exists in the response to fatty acids. The identification of genetic variants interacting with fatty acids might explain this heterogeneity in metabolic responses. This chapter reviews the mechanisms underlying the interactions between the different components of the MetS, dietary fatty acids and genes. Challenges surrounding the implementation of personalized nutrition are also covered.
       
  • Marine Waste Utilization as a Source of Functional and Health Compounds
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 September 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Amin Shavandi, Yakun Hou, Alan Carne, Michelle McConnell, Alaa El-din A. Bekhit Consumer demand for convenience has led to large quantities of seafood being value-added processed before marketing, resulting in large amounts of marine by-products being generated by processing industries. Several bioconversion processes have been proposed to transform some of these by-products. In addition to their relatively low value conventional use as animal feed and fertilizers, several investigations have been reported that have demonstrated the potential to add value to viscera, heads, skins, fins, trimmings, and crab and shrimp shells by extraction of lipids, bioactive peptides, enzymes, and other functional proteins and chitin that can be used in food and pharmaceutical applications. This chapter is focused on reviewing the opportunities for utilization of these marine by-products. The chapter discusses the various products and bioactive compounds that can be obtained from seafood waste and describes various methods that can be used to produce these products with the aim of highlighting opportunities to add value to these marine waste streams.
       
  • Functions and Applications of Bioactive Peptides From Corn Gluten Meal
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 August 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Guoming Li, Wenying Liu, Yuqing Wang, Fuhuai Jia, Yuchen Wang, Yong Ma, Ruizeng Gu, Jun Lu Corn protein has been identified as an important source of bioactive peptides. Such peptides can be released during hydrolysis induced by proteolytic enzymes or microbial fermentation. Corn peptides have been found to exhibit different functions in vitro and in vivo such as antihypertensive, hepatoprotective, anti-obesity, antimicrobial, antioxidative, mineral-binding and accelerating alcohol metabolism. To date, 22 sequences of bioactive corn peptides have already been identified. There is an increasing commercial interest in the production of corn peptides with the purpose of using them as active ingredients, which may find use in the treatment of liver injury, hypertension, dental carries, oxidative stress, mineral malabsorption and obesity. These bioactive peptides may be used in formulation of functional foods, nutraceuticals, and natural drugs because of their health benefit effects.
       
  • Particular Alimentations for Nutrition, Health and Pleasure
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 23 August 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): J.M. Aguilera, B.-K. Kim, D.J. Park People around the world select their foods and meals according to particular choices based on physiological disorders and diseases, traditions, lifestyles, beliefs, etc. In this chapter, two of these particular alimentations are reviewed: those of the gourmet and the frail elderly. They take place in an environment where food is usually synonymous of body health disregarding its effects on social, cultural and psychological aspects, including emotions. Based on an extensive literature review, it is proposed that the paradigm changes from food equals health to food means well-being, the latter encompassing physical and physiological aspects as well as psychological, emotional and social aspects at the individual and societal levels. The growing food and nutrition requirements of an aging population are reviewed and special nutritious and enjoyable products available for this group are discussed.
       
  • Meat as a Pharmakon: An Exploration of the Biosocial Complexities
           of Meat Consumption
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 August 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Frédéric Leroy In contemporary dietary advice, meat is depicted as a pharmakon: it is believed to either heal or poison the human body (and mind). Often, it also serves as a scapegoat for a wide range of public health issues and other societal problems. Related attitudes, practices, and beliefs pertain to a demarcated mode of thinking or episteme that is characteristic for the so-called post-domestic or industrialized societies. The latter are not only typified by an abundant yet largely concealed production of meat, but increasingly also by moral crisis and confusion about its nutritional meaning. For an improved appreciation of the ambiguous position of meat in human health and disease, as well as the concomitant scattering into different subject positions (e.g., the omnivore, flexitarian, vegetarian, vegan, permaculturalist, and carnivore position), an interdisciplinary approach is required. To this end, the current study tentatively combines food research with a selection of (post-structuralist) concepts from the humanities. The aim is to outline a historical and biosocial need for meat (as well as its rejection) and to analyze how its transformative effects have contributed to a polarized discourse on diet and well-being in academia and society at large. Excessive categorization (for instance with respect to meat's alleged naturalness, normalness, necessity, and niceness) and Manichean thinking in binary opposites are among the key factors that lead to impassioned yet often sterile debates between the advocates and adversaries of meat eating in a post-truth context.

  • Emerging Biological Risks in a Global Context: An Introduction
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 May 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): David Rodríguez-Lázaro, Marta Hernandez Foodborne diseases are one of the most serious problems in public health and one of the main causes of illness and death. It is estimated that around 600 million cases of gastroenteritis occur worldwide each year. At present, more than 200 foodborne diseases are known, which can cause from mild gastroenteritis to syndromes with a fatal outcome, with the added possibility of chronic complications, and more than 40 agents have been described that can cause foodborne diseases. Some of the most relevant foodborne pathogens are neglected or their impact underestimated such as foodborne viruses and parasites. Most of the foodborne pathogenic microorganisms possess a zoonotic potential with high environmental impact by the intensive animal production, and consequently the environment plays a very important role in their transmission. Consequently, a coordinated approach must be implemented to control emerging foodborne pathogens in primary production (animal health), in the community (human health), and in the environment (environmental health).
       
  • Antimicrobial Resistance in the Food Chain in the European Union
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 May 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Diego Florez-Cuadrado, Miguel A. Moreno, María Ugarte-Ruíz, Lucas Domínguez Consumers require safety foods but without losing enough supply and low prices. Food concerns about antimicrobial residues and antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) bacteria are not usually appropriately separated and could be perceived as the same problem. The monitoring of residues of antimicrobials in animal food is well established at different levels (farm, slaughterhouse, and industry), and it is preceded by the legislation of veterinary medicines where maximum residues limits are required for medicines to be used in food animal. Following the strategy of the World Health Organization, one of the proposed measures consists in controlling the use of critical antibiotics. The European Union surveillance program currently includes the animal species with the highest meat production (pigs, chickens, turkeys, and cattle) and the food derived from them, investigating antimicrobial resistance of zoonotic (Salmonella and Campylobacter) and indicator (Escherichia coli and enterococci) bacteria. AMR mechanisms encoded by genes have a greater impact on transfer than mutations. Sometimes these genes are found in mobile genetic elements such as plasmids, transposons, or integrons, capable of passing from one bacterium to another by horizontal transfer. It is important to know that depending on how the resistance mechanism is transferred, the power of dissemination is different. By vertical transfer of the resistance gene, whatever its origin, will be transmitted to the following generations. In the case of horizontal transfer, the resistance gene moves to neighboring bacteria and therefore the range of resistance can be much greater.
       
  • Hepatitis E Virus: A New Foodborne Zoonotic Concern
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 May 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): David Rodríguez-Lázaro, Marta Hernandez, Nigel Cook Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is an enteric nonenveloped single-stranded RNA virus. Among the mammalian lineages, four genotypes are associated to human infection: genogroups 1 and 2 infect only humans and are mainly found in developing countries, while genogroups 3 and 4 are zoonotic, being found in a variety of animal species including pigs, and are autochthonous in developed countries. HEV infection can result in liver damage and with genotypes 1 and 2 symptoms can be particularly severe in pregnant women, with a high lethality ratio. Several cases of foodborne transmission of hepatitis E have been reported, often involving consumption of meat, especially raw or undercooked. Information is lacking on the exact extent of foodborne transmission of HEV.
       
  • Norovirus: The Burden of the Unknown
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 May 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Walter Randazzo, Doris H. D’Souza, Gloria Sanchez Human noroviruses (HNoVs) are primarily transmitted by the fecal–oral route, either by person-to-person contact, or by ingestion of contaminated food or water as well as by aerosolization. Moreover, HNoVs significantly contribute to foodborne diseases being the causative agent of one-fifth of acute gastroenteritis worldwide. As a consequence of globalization, transnational outbreaks of foodborne infections are reported with increasing frequency. Therefore, in this review, state-of-the-art information regarding molecular procedures for human norovirus detection in food as well common food processing technologies have been summarized. Besides, the purpose of this chapter is to consolidate basic information on various aspects of HNoVs and to summarize food processing technologies that can potentially be applied in the food industry.
       
  • Parasites in Food: From a Neglected Position to an Emerging Issue
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 May 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Lucy J. Robertson Foodborne parasites have long been a neglected group of pathogens, as they often have insidious, chronic effects, rather than being acute diseases, and they are often associated with impoverished or marginalized populations. In addition, due to the long incubation period for most foodborne parasites, source attribution is often difficult, if not impossible. However, global trends have enabled foodborne parasites to emerge in different populations in new locations, transmitted through different food types, and sometimes with unexpected symptoms. This emergence of foodborne parasites has brought them into focus. In this chapter, six foodborne parasites are used as examples on emergence: Echinococcus multilocularis is spreading to new locations; Cryptosporidium spp. are beginning to be associated not only with water, but also with salads; Trypanosoma cruzi is being manifest with acute disease due to foodborne transmission, particularly transmitted with juices; Trichinella spp. have become less of a burden regarding transmission via pork in many countries, but now game animals are becoming a concern; anisakiasis is becoming a global problem as the world develops a taste for sushi, and similarly for opisthorchiasis, which is increasingly being associated with cholangiocarcinoma.However, the emergence of these foodborne parasites provides an incentive for increased efforts being made toward control. In this chapter, having described how the parasites are emerging from their neglected position, the focus turns toward control. In addition to considering control measures that may be applied to the specific parasites, an overview is provided of some of the organized collaborations, projects, and consortia, as well as some of their outputs, that have in focus the control of these emerging and important pathogens.
       
  • Listeria monocytogenes in Foods
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 3 April 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Kieran Jordan, Olivia McAuliffe Listeria monocytogenes causes listeriosis, a rare foodborne disease with a mortality rate of 20%–30%. The elderly and immunocompromised are particularly susceptible to listeriosis. L. monocytogenes is ubiquitous in nature and can contaminate food-processing environments, posing a threat to the food chain. This is particularly important for ready-to-eat foods as there is no heat treatment or other antimicrobial step between production and consumption. Thus, occurrence and control of L. monocytogenes are important for industry and public health. Advances in whole-genome sequence technology are facilitating the investigation of disease outbreaks, linking sporadic cases to outbreaks, and linking outbreaks internationally. Novel control methods, such as bacteriophage and bacteriocins, can contribute to a reduction in the occurrence of L. monocytogenes in the food-processing environment, thereby reducing the risk of food contamination and contributing to a reduction in public health issues.

  • Chapter Six - Producing Powders Containing Active Dry Probiotics With the
           Aid of Spray Drying
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Nan Fu, Song Huang, Jie Xiao, Xiao Dong Chen Probiotics are microorganisms capable of conferring health benefits to humans and animals when ingested. Probiotic products that prevail in food market usually contain viable bacteria from Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium genera. Bacterial strains in these genera often have complex nutrient requirements and tend to be fragile under environmental stresses. How to incorporate the cells into food matrix without causing undesired viability loss is a key issue for developing products of viable probiotics. Spray drying offers a rapid way to produce powders encapsulating probiotics in a matrix of protectant(s), which may extend the term of viability preservation and expand the application of probiotic products. In spray drying, feed solution that contains probiotic cells and dissolved or suspended protectant solids are atomized into droplets, which are quickly converted into particles by drying in a hot airflow. The harsh conditions and interplaying stresses make the maintenance of cell viability a challenging task. To enhance cell survival in dried powders, various approaches have been attempted, including the enhancement of the intrinsic stress tolerance of cells, adjustment of protectant composition, and optimization of the production process and dryer settings. This chapter discusses important factors influencing probiotic viability during spray drying from aspects of microbiology, food chemistry, and drying process. The mechanisms underlying the influences at the droplet and cellular levels and strategies taken to protect cell viability at the process level are discussed.
       
  • Chapter Seven - Affinity Biosensors for Detection of Mycotoxins in Food
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Gennady Evtugyn, Veronika Subjakova, Sopio Melikishvili, Tibor Hianik This chapter reviews recent achievements in methods of detection of mycotoxins in food. Special focus is on the biosensor technology that utilizes antibodies and nucleic acid aptamers as receptors. Development of biosensors is based on the immobilization of antibodies or aptamers onto various conventional supports like gold layer, but also on nanomaterials such as graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, and quantum dots that provide an effective platform for achieving high sensitivity of detection using various physical methods, including electrochemical, mass sensitive, and optical. The biosensors developed so far demonstrate high sensitivity typically in subnanomolar limit of detection. Several biosensors have been validated in real samples. The sensitivity of biosensors is similar and, in some cases, even better than traditional analytical methods such as ELISA or chromatography. We believe that future trends will be focused on improving biosensor properties toward practical application in food industry.
       
  • Chapter Five - New Trends in the Uses of Yeasts in Oenology
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Amparo Querol, Roberto Pérez-Torrado, Javier Alonso-del-Real, Romain Minebois, Jiri Stribny, Bruno M. Oliveira, Eladio Barrio The most important factor in winemaking is the quality of the final product and the new trends in oenology are dictated by wine consumers and producers. Traditionally the red wine is the most consumed and more popular; however, in the last times, the wine companies try to attract other groups of populations, especially young people and women that prefer sweet, whites or rosé wines, very fruity and with low alcohol content. Besides the new trends in consumer preferences, there are also increased concerns on the effects of alcohol consumption on health and the effects of global climate change on grape ripening and wine composition producing wines with high alcohol content. Although S. cerevisiae is the most frequent species in wines, and the subject of most studies, S. uvarum and hybrids between Saccharomyces species such as S. cerevisiae × S. kudriavzevii and S. cerevisiae × S. uvarum are also involved in wine fermentations and can be preponderant in certain wine regions. New yeast starters of non-cerevisiae strains (S. uvarum) or hybrids (S. cerevisiae × S. uvarum and S. cerevisiae × S. kudriavzevii) can contribute to solve some problems of the wineries. They exhibit good fermentative capabilities at low temperatures, producing wines with lower alcohol and higher glycerol amounts, while fulfilling the requirements of the commercial yeasts, such as a good fermentative performance and aromatic profiles that are of great interest for the wine industry. In this review, we will analyze different applications of nonconventional yeasts to solve the current winemaking demands.
       
  • Chapter Four - Impact of Unit Operations From Farm to Fork on Microbial
           Safety and Quality of Foods
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Verônica O. Alvarenga, Fernanda B. Campagnollo, Leonardo do Prado-Silva, Claudia N. Horita, Magdevis Y.R. Caturla, Eliene P.R. Pereira, Aline Crucello, Anderson S. Sant’Ana Unit operations modify material properties aiming to produce uniform and high-quality food products with greater acceptance by the increasingly demanding consumers or with longer shelf life and better possibilities of storage and transport. Microorganisms, including bacteria, molds, viruses, and parasites, may have different susceptibilities to unit operations employed during food processing. On-farm (cleaning, selection and classification, cooling, storage, and transport) and on-factory unit operations (heating, refrigeration/freezing, dehydration, modification of atmosphere, irradiation, and physical, chemical, and microbial-based operations) are commonly employed throughout food production chain. The intensity and combination of unit operations along with food composition, packaging, and storage conditions will influence on the dominance of specific microorganisms, which can be pathogenic or responsible for spoilage. Thus, in the context of food safety objective (FSO), the knowledge and the quantification of the effects caused by each step of processing can enable to control and ensure the quality and safety of manufactured products.
       
  • Chapter Three - Characterization of the Degree of Food Processing in
           Relation With Its Health Potential and Effects
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Anthony Fardet Up today technological processes are intended to produce safe and palatable food products. Yet, it is also expected that processing produces healthy and sustainable foods. However, due to the dramatic increase of chronic diseases prevalence worldwide, i.e., obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and some cancers, ultraprocessing has been pointed out as producing unhealthy foods, rich in energy and poor in protective micronutrients and fiber, i.e., “empty” calories. Indeed the 1980s saw massive arrivals of ultraprocessed foods in supermarkets, i.e., fractionated–recombined foods with added ingredients and/or additives. Epidemiological studies clearly emphasized that populations adhering the most to ultraprocessed foods, e.g., processed meat, refined grains, ultraprocessed plant-based foods, and/or sweetened beverages, exhibited the higher prevalence of chronic diseases. This prompted researchers to classify foods according to their degree of processing as with the international NOVA classification (i.e., un/minimally processed, processed, and ultraprocessed foods). More and more studies showed that such a classification makes sense for health. Overall one distinguishes three categories of processes: mechanical, thermal, and fermentative treatments, this latter being the more favorable to food health potential. This chapter has therefore several ambitions: (1) to review association between degree of food processing and chronic disease risk prevalence; (2) to explore the impact of technological processes on food health potential considering both matrix and compositional effects; (3) to discuss the need for classifying food according to their degree of processing in future epidemiological studies; and (4) to analyze consequences of adhering to a more holistic paradigm in both food processing and nutrition.
       
  • Chapter Two - Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Fatty Liver Disease in Children
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Claudia Della Corte, Salvatore Iasevoli, Andrea Dello Strologo, Mariateresa Sanseviero, Valerio Nobili Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represents the most common cause of chronic liver disease in Industrialized Countries in adults and children. It is estimated that NAFLD will become the main indication for liver transplantation in the next decade. NAFLD is also considered the hepatic feature of metabolic syndrome and therefore it is generally associated to the risk of developing some metabolic complications, with negative impact on patient's survival.Today, no pharmacological treatment has been identified for NAFLD, and behavioral approach, based on diet and regular physical exercise, represent the current recommended treatment, even if with disappointing results. For these reasons, several pharmacological trials have been conducted, in order to identify possible alternative therapy direct against pathogenetic targets of NAFLD. Several data have suggested the potential beneficial role of omega-3 fatty acids in NAFLD and its related metabolic disarray.In this chapter, we try to elucidate the molecular and clinical available evidence for the omega-3 supplementation in pediatric NAFLD patients.
       
  • Chapter One - Egg Protein-Derived Bioactive Peptides: Preparation,
           Efficacy, and Absorption
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition Research, Volume 85Author(s): Wang Liao, Forough Jahandideh, Hongbing Fan, Myoungjin Son, Jianping Wu The hen's egg is an important protein source of human diet. On average one large egg contains ~ 6 g protein, which contributes to ~ 11% of daily protein intake. As a high-quality protein, egg proteins are well recognized as excellent sources of bioactive peptides. The objectives of this chapter are to introduce generation, bioactivities, and absorption of egg protein-derived bioactive peptides. Research on egg protein-derived bioactive peptides has been progressed during the past decades. Enzymatic hydrolysis is the major technique to prepare bioactive peptides from egg protein. Quantitative structure–activity relationships-aided in silico prediction is increasingly applied as a promising tool for efficient prediction of novel bioactive peptides. A number of bioactive peptides from egg proteins have been characterized for antioxidant, immunomodulatory, antihypertensive, antidiabetic, anticancer, and antimicrobial activities. Egg protein-derived peptides that can improve bone health have been reported as well. However, molecular mechanisms of many peptides are not fully understood. The stability and absorption routes, bioavailability, safety, and production of bioactive peptides await further investigation.
