  • Aquaculture and its by-products as a source of nutrients and bioactive
           compounds
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 February 2020Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Fadila Al Khawli, Francisco J. Marti-Quijal, Emilia Ferrer, María-José Ruiz, Houda Berrada, Mohsen Gavahian, Francisco J. Barba, Beatriz de la FuenteAbstractUnderutilized marine resources (e.g., algae, fish, and shellfish processing by-products), as sustainable alternatives to livestock protein and interesting sources of bioactive compounds, have attracted the attention of the researchers. Aquatic products processing industries are growing globally and producing huge amounts of by-products that often discarded as waste. However, recent studies pointed out that marine waste contains several valuable components including high-quality proteins, lipids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and bioactive compounds that can be used against cancer and some cardiovascular disorders. Besides, previously conducted studies on algae have shown the presence of some unique biologically active compounds and valuable proteins. Hence, this chapter points out recent advances in this area of research and discusses the importance of aquaculture and fish processing by-products as alternative sources of proteins and bioactive compounds.
       
  • Chemical composition and health properties of coffee and coffee
           by-products
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 January 2020Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Gilberto V. de Melo Pereira, Dão Pedro de Carvalho Neto, Antonio I. Magalhães Júnior, Fernanda Guilherme do Prado, Maria Giovana B. Pagnoncelli, Susan Grace Karp, Carlos Ricardo SoccolAbstractCoffee can be an ally in the fight against diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer, hepatic injury, cirrhosis, depression, suicidal behavior, and neurological and cardiovascular disorders. The properties of coffee also favor gastrointestinal tract and gut microbiota establishment. Coffee bioactive components include phenolic compounds (chlorogenic acids, cafestol and kahweol), alkaloids (caffeine and trigonelin), diterpenes (cafestol and kahweol) and other secondary metabolites. The image of coffee as a super functional food has helped to increase coffee consumption across the globe. This chapter addresses the main health promotion mechanisms associated with coffee consumption. Related topics on coffee production chain, world consumption and reuse of coffee by-products in the production of high-value-adding molecules with potential applications in the food industry are addressed and discussed.
       
  • Scaling-up processes: Patents and commercial applications
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 January 2020Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Beatriz de la Fuente, Adrián Tornos, Andrea Príncep, Jose M. Lorenzo, Mirian Pateiro, Houda Berrada, Francisco J. Barba, María-José Ruiz, Francisco J. Martí-QuijalAbstractThere is currently a great demand for fish and seafood products. However, their high consumption produces large quantities of by-products that can be an ecological problem. That is why it is necessary to look for alternatives to revalue these products and give them a second life, thus reducing their environmental impact. In this sense, several investigations have been carried out in laboratories around the world to extract compounds from marine processing industry for the final high added-value products. Some of these compounds are collagen, omega 3 fatty acids, protein concentrates or chitin/chitosan, among others. Nevertheless, one of the critical steps for obtaining these compounds at the industrial level is the scale-up. Much of this research does not progress at the industrial level due to the complications of its large-scale research and use. However, the advances in technology entail that more research studies achieve to reach the industrial development phase. Once a product or process has been developed, it should be patented to protect its intellectual property. This chapter gives an overview of this entire process, showing some examples of patents or products from seafood by-products already marketed and providing some details of the corresponding legislation.
       
  • Alternative extraction techniques to obtain, isolate and purify proteins
           and bioactive from aquaculture and by-products
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 December 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Khadijeh Abhari, Amin Mousavi KhaneghahAbstractOceans cover more than 70% of the earth's surface and provide a great ecosystem for habitat of a large divers of marine species. The marine species are rich sources of bioactive compound that can be applied in medicine, pharmacology and food industry. Besides the marine species, fish processing industry also produces substantial volumes of by-products that can be used for a variety of purposes. Thus, it is important to find approaches to access to these valuable compounds. Nowadays, more factors have been considered in selecting an appropriate method for extraction of bioactive compounds such as consume less time and solvent, to be fast and ecofriendly. Concerns regarding entering the pollutions to the environment resulted to invest on the methods practicable with less chemical solvents and even green ones, however, implementation of stricter regulations and policies is required to encourage researchers to set up the procedures with reduced toxic agents to guarantee the environmental safety. In the current chapter the most common marine derived compounds and innovative methods for their extraction will be discussed.
       
  • Development of new food and pharmaceutical products: Nutraceuticals and
           food additives
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 December 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Paulo E.S. Munekata, Mirian Pateiro, Francisco J. Barba, Rubén Dominguéz, Mohammed Gagaoua, José M. LorenzoAbstractThe market of nutraceuticals and foods elaborated with natural additives are constantly growing and leading researchers and professionals of pharmaceutical and food industry to develop new products and reconsider the formulation of processed food. However, these products can only be insert into the market after extensive and well-performed scientific studies that clarify the mechanisms by which bioactive compounds can improve health status beyond nutrition or can replace conventional food additives perceived as “unhealthy” or “unfamiliar” by consumers. Therefore, scientific evidence regarding the actual health benefits and preservation/enhancement of food attributes are the crucial step in the exploration of nutraceuticals and natural food additives. In this context, several studies have been carried to identify and characterize natural bioactive compounds in aquaculture and related by-products for further production of nutraceuticals and food additives. The main purpose of this chapter is to highlight the most recent advances to explore extracts and isolated compounds from aquaculture and by-products to develop nutraceuticals and food additives.
       
  • Evaluation of the protein and bioactive compound
           bioaccessibility/bioavailability and cytotoxicity of the extracts obtained
           from aquaculture and fisheries by-products
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 December 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Mirian Pateiro, Paulo E.S. Munekata, Christos Tsatsanis, Rubén Domínguez, Wangang Zhang, Francisco J. Barba, José M. LorenzoAbstractBioavailability, bioaccessibility, bioactivity and cytotoxicity define if a bioactive compound obtained from aquaculture and associated by-products can be assimilated and used for the body in a safe and efficient way. Four models are used to evaluate the bioavailability: in vitro (simulated gastrointestinal digestion using intestinal epithelial Caco-2 cell cultures); ex vivo (gastrointestinal organs or organoids in laboratory conditions); in situ (intestinal perfusion in animals) and in vivo (animal studies and human studies). In vitro models are very effective, predicting in vivo actions since they evaluate multiple conditions regardless physiological effects. However, in vivo systems are essential for the validation of the results. The use of a combined model between human digestion and cell culture-based models would solve these difficulties, allowing valid conclusions. These studies must be completed with the evaluation of cytotoxicity and oxidative stress markers, providing most accurate results regarding the adverse effect on the body. These methods would test the effect of food structure, food composition, dietary factors and the effect of food processing on bioavailability. Further studies should be carried out to establish a standardized method and achieve a balance between the use of in vivo and in vitro systems.
       
  • Legal regulations and consumer attitudes regarding the use of products
           obtained from aquaculture
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Belén Gómez, Mirian Pateiro, Francisco J. Barba, Krystian Marszałek, Czesław Puchalski, Włodziemierz Lewandowski, Jesus Simal-Gandara, José M. LorenzoAbstractAquaculture is an industrial activity that not only aims to be a source of quality food, but also is a way to restock fish populations and to conserve the biodiversity of our oceans. On the other hand, the production system can influence the consumer perceptions about what is purchased and consumed, as well as the subsequent environmental and social effects. Fish feeding production is affected by the growth of aquaculture and the increasing demand that have let to deficit, high prices, and low ecological safety of fish meal and oil. In this regard, the use of microbial biomass obtained from a variety of microorganisms has been reported as a potential substitute for plant- and animal-derived ingredients, satisfying the requirements in protein and energy and even adding functional properties. In addition, microalgae can increase the nutritional value of animal feed, play a key role in the physiological growth and external appearance of aquatic animals. Finally, politicians, industry and society in general should be careful with the numerous uncertainties still present in the sector that can weaken its sustainability from environmental, social and economic perspectives.
       
  • Seaweed and seaweed-derived metabolites as prebiotics
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 10 December 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Suvimol Charoensiddhi, Reinu E. Abraham, Peng Su, Wei ZhangAbstractSeaweeds and their bioactive compounds, particularly polysaccharides and phenolics can be regarded as great dietary supplements with gut health benefits and prebiotics. These components are resistant to digestion by enzymes present in the human gastrointestinal tract, also selectively stimulate the growth of beneficial gut bacteria and the production of fermentation products such as short chain fatty acids. Commonly, the health benefits of seaweed components are assessed by including them in an in vitro anaerobic fermentation system containing human fecal inocula that mimics the environment of the human large bowel. Regarding to the complex interactions between dietary components, gastrointestinal physiological processes, and gut microbiota are difficult to model in vitro. Consequently it is important to follow up the promising in vitro results with in vivo animal or human testing. The aim of this chapter is to have a comprehensive review on the application of seaweeds and seaweed-derived metabolites as prebiotics, and understand the trends, gaps and future directions of both scientific and industrial developments. This work contributes to develop and expand new platform of seaweed utilization for higher-value products, particularly to functional food and nutraceutical industries in order to serve the social demand for health awareness and support economic development.
       
  • Aquaculture and by-products: Challenges and opportunities in the use of
           alternative protein sources and bioactive compounds
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 27 November 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): María López-Pedrouso, José M. Lorenzo, Jesús Cantalapiedra, Carlos Zapata, José M. Franco, Daniel FrancoAbstractThere is a growing concern about chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, cancer and cardiovascular diseases resulting from profound changes in the western lifestyle. Aquaculture by-products are generated in large quantities and they can be profitably recycled through their bioactive compounds used for health or food supplements. Improving waste utilization in the field of aquaculture is essential for a sustainable industry to prevent or minimize the environmental impact. In this sense fish by-products are a great source of protein and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids which are particularly studied on Atlantic salmon or rainbow trout. Fish protein hydrolysate (FPH) obtained from chemical, enzymatical and microbial hydrolysis of processing by-products are being used as a source of amino acids and peptides with high digestibility, fast absorption and important biological activities. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) from fish discards have been reported to decrease postprandial triacylglycerol levels, reduction of blood pressure, platelet aggregation and the inflammatory response. Crustacean by-products can also be used to produce chitosan with antioxidant and antimicrobial activity for food and pharmaceutical industries and carotenoids with important biological activity. Seaweeds are rich in bioactive compounds such as alginate, carrageenan, agar, carotenoids and polyphenols with different biological activities such as antioxidant, anticancer, antidiabetic, antimicrobial or anti-inflammatory activity. Finally, regarding harvest microalgae, during the past decades, they were mainly used in the healthy food market, with> 75% of the annual microalgal biomass production, used for the manufacture of powders, tablets, capsules or pills. We will report and discuss the present and future role of aquaculture by-products as sources of biomolecules for the design and development of functional foods/beverages. This chapter will focus on the main bioactive compounds from aquaculture by-products as functional compounds in food and their applications in biomedicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases.

  • Ohmic heating as a promising technique for extraction of herbal essential
           oils: Understanding mechanisms, recent findings, and associated challenges
           
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 26 October 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Mohsen Gavahian, Sudhir Sastry, Reza Farhoosh, Asgar FarahnakyAbstractThe applicability of ohmic heating, as a volumetric heating technique, has been explored in various sectors of the food industry. The use of ohmic heating for essential oil extraction is among its emerging applications. This chapter overviews the recent progress in this area of research, discusses the mechanisms involved in ohmic-based essential oil extraction processes, explains the effective process parameters, highlights their benefits, and explains the considerations to address the obstacles to industrial implementation. Ohmic-assisted hydrodistillation (OAHD) and ohmic-accelerated steam distillation (OASD) systems were proposed as alternatives to conventional hydrodistillation and steam distillation, respectively. These techniques have successfully extracted essential oils from several aromatic plants (e.g., thyme, peppermint, citronella, and lavender). Both OAHD and OASD possess a number of benefits, such as reducing the extraction time and energy consumption, compared to classical extraction methods. However, these techniques are in their infancy and further economic and upscaling studies are required for their industrial adaptation.
       
  • Protein and amino acids for skeletal muscle health in aging
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 October 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Anna Thalacker-Mercer, Emily Riddle, Laura BarreAbstractProteins and its building blocks, amino acids, have many physiological roles in the body. While some amino acids can be synthesized endogenously, exogenous protein and amino acids are necessary to maintain homeostasis. Because skeletal muscle contains a large portion of endogenous protein and plays important roles in movement, regulation, and metabolism, imbalanced protein and amino acid availability may result in clinical conditions including skeletal muscle atrophy, impaired muscle growth or regrowth, and functional decline. Aging is associated with changes in protein metabolism and multiple physiological and functional alterations in the skeletal muscle that are accentuated by decreased dietary protein intake and impaired anabolic responses to stimuli. Inactivity and chronically elevated inflammation of the skeletal muscle can initiate and/or augment pathological remodeling of the tissue (i.e., increase of fat and fibrotic tissues and atrophy of the muscle). Defining an adequate amount of dietary protein that is appropriate to maintain the availability of amino acids for biological needs is necessary but is still widely debated for older adults. This chapter will provide (i) an overview of dietary protein and amino acids and their role in skeletal muscle health; (ii) an overview of skeletal muscle structure and function and the deterioration of muscle that occurs with advancing age; (iii) a discussion of the relationship between protein/amino acid metabolism and skeletal muscle decline with aging; and (iv) a brief discussion of optimal protein intakes for older adults to maintain skeletal muscle health in aging.
       
  • Polyphenols in the management of brain disorders: Modulation of the
           microbiota-gut-brain axis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 14 August 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Diana Serra, Leonor M. Almeida, Teresa C.P. DinisAbstractThe modulation of the microbiota-gut-brain axis with a view to preventing and treating brain disorders became recently a hot topic for the scientific community.Dietary polyphenols are multifaceted compounds that have demonstrated to be highly advantageous to counteract inflammation, oxidative stress, and neurodegeneration, among other pathological conditions, being useful in the prevention and treatment of several chronic disorders. The potential of these compounds to prevent and treat brain disorders has not been only related to their capacity to reach the brain, depending on their chemical structure, and interact directly with brain cells, but also to their ability to modulate the communication between the brain and the gut, interfering with multiple branches of this axis.Preclinical studies have demonstrated the potential of these food bioactive compounds in brain diseases, namely, neurodevelopmental, such as Down's syndrome and Autism spectrum disorder, neurodegenerative, such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, and psychiatric disorders, such as depression and anxiety. Until now, dietary polyphenols have been recognized as promising nutraceuticals to combat brain disorders. However, the impact of these compounds on the gut-brain interconnection remains poorly elucidated. Also, clinical assays are crucial to further support the beneficial effects of these compounds as demonstrated in preclinical research.
       
  • Bioactive potential of fruit and vegetable wastes
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 August 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Vasile Coman, Bernadette-Emőke Teleky, Laura Mitrea, Gheorghe Adrian Martău, Katalin Szabo, Lavinia-Florina Călinoiu, Dan Cristian VodnarAbstractFruits and vegetables are essential for human nutrition, delivering a substantial proportion of vitamins, minerals, and fibers in our daily diet. Unfortunately, half the fruits and vegetables produced worldwide end up as wastes, generating environmental issues caused mainly by microbial degradation. Most wastes are generated by industrial processing, the so-called by-products. These by-products still contain many bioactive compounds post-processing, such as macronutrients (proteins and carbohydrates) and phytochemicals (polyphenols and carotenoids). Recently, the recovery of these bioactive compounds from industry by-products has received significant attention, mainly due to their possible health benefits for humans. This chapter focuses on the bioactive potential of fruit and vegetable by-products with possible applications in the food industry (functional foods) and in the health sector (nutraceuticals).
       
  • Advanced lipid based biosensors for food analysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 August 2019Source: Advances in Food and Nutrition ResearchAuthor(s): Georgia-Paraskevi NikoleliAbstractThe investigation of lipid films for the construction of nanosensors has recently given the opportunity to manufacture devices to selectively determine a wide range of food toxicants. Biosensor miniaturization using recent advances in nanotechnology has given the opportunity to investigate novel techniques to immobilize a wide range of enzymes, antibodies and receptors within the lipid film. This chapter reviews novel revent platforms in nanobiosensors based on lipid membranes that are used in food chemistry to determine various food toxicants. Examples of applications are described with an emphasis on novel systems, sensing techniques and nanotechnology-based transduction schemes. The compounds that can be monitored are insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, metals, toxins, hormones, etc. Finally, limitations and future prospects are presented herein on the evaluation/validation and eventually commercialization of the proposed sensors.
