Summary : Omega-3 fatty acids are quite beneficial for human health. These play a vital role in lowering blood cholesterol, blood triglycerides and, hence, blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids are helpful in preventing heart diseases, skin diseases and auto immune disorders. The daily intake of 0.5 to 1.0 gram omega-3 fatty acids is recommended for an individual for a healthy life. The food industry is taking steps to return these healthful fatty acids to the human diets. In this regards, poultry meat and eggs can serve the purpose if enriched with omega-3 fatty acids. Laying hens have the ability to absorb and deposit dietary fatty acids without considerable modification in the composition. Thus, the lipid metabolism in the hens permits the fortification of eggs with omega-3 fatty acids by dietary supplementation to increase the provision of these fatty acids which are appropriate for human consumption. This book provides the necessary information about the enrichment of eggs with omega-3 fatty acids by supplementing linseed oil and canola oil to the diets of laying hens. These oils are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids and readily promote the deposition of omega-3 fatty acids in the eggs.

Summary : 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.

Summary : This unique publication for the first time brings together scientists from academia, government and industry to discuss the role of omega-3 fatty acids in health, the need to reintroduce them into the food supply, the methods by which this can be accomplished and the state of research. With the domestication of animals, there has been a change in animal feeds, which in turn transformed the composition of meats, particularly the content of essential fatty acids. Changes similar to those in meats have occurred in the composition of eggs, poultry and in fish from aquaculture. Up-to-date reviews on the role of omega-3 fatty acids in health, cardiovascular disease, bone remodeling relative to osteoporosis and in patients with retinitis pigmentosa emphasize the need for a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in the food supply. The reintroduction of omega-3 fatty acids into food products is discussed, and the methods involved in their production as well as their metabolic effects on human beings and companion animals are outlined. Overall, the papers presented indicate the necessity to establish recommended daily intakes for both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Furthermore, there is a need to redefine food safety; changes in food composition must also be taken into consideration. This unique publication is a valuable source for physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, veterinarians and agriculturalists, as well as for all those concerned with aspects of food production, food technology, food policy and consumer issues.

Summary : There is increasing evidence in studies conducted over recent decades that numerous health benefits are associated with the consumption of long chain omega-3 (u03c9-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCu03c93PUFA) throughout the human lifecycle(1). This has created a demand for functional food products enriched with LCu03c93PUFA. Nanoemulsions, systems with extremely small droplet sizes have been shown to increase LCu03c93PUFA bioavailability(2). However, nanoemulsion creation and processing methods may impact on the oxidative stability of these systems due to small lipid droplet sizes and large droplet surface areas(3). This study aimed to systematically review published literature that focused on the oxidative stability of LCu03c93PUFA nanoemulsions suitable for integration into food vehicles. The review followed the PRISMA checklist for systematic reviews. Searches were conducted and titles and abstracts screened for relevance by two independent review authors (KEL, LB or LS). Studies were included in the review if they evaluated the oxidative stability of LCu03c93PUFA nanoemulsions suitable for food enrichment and were published from January 2007 to July 2017. The search criteria identified 1880 articles, which were reduced to 1403 upon abstract and title screening. Further application of inclusion/exclusion criteria led to the identification of 17 key studies. Researchers used a range surfactants and antioxidants to create systems which, were evaluated during 7 to 100 days of storage. Nanoemulsions were created using high and low power methods with synthetic and natural emulsifiers. Natural emulsifiers offered equivalent or increased oxidative stability compared to synthetic sources, which is useful as consumers are demanding natural, cleaner label food products(4). LCu03c93PUFA source oils evaluated included fish (n = 9), flaxseed (n = 2), algae (n = 3), krill (n = 2), walnut (n = 1). Equivalent vegetarian sources of LCu03c93PUFA to those found in fish oils such as algal oils show potential as they provide direct sources without the need for conversion in the human metabolic pathway. Quillaja saponin is a promising natural emulsifier that can produce nanoemulsion systems with equivalent/increased oxidative stability in comparison to other emulsifiers particularly when additional antioxidants are used. Further studies to evaluate the oxidative stability of quillaja saponin nanoemulsions combined with algal sources of LCu03c93PUFA are warranted to enable the development of safe, clean label functional food products.

Summary : The emergence of the discipline of encapsulation and controlled release has had a great impact on the food and dietary supplements sectors; principally around fortifying food systems with nutrients and health-promoting ingredients. The successful incorporation of these actives in food formulations depends on preserving their stability and bioavailability as well as masking undesirable flavors throughout processing, shelf life and consumption. This second edition of Encapsulation and Controlled Release Technologies in Food Systems serves as an improvement and a complement companion to the first. However, it differentiates itself in two main aspects. Firstly, it introduces the reader to novel encapsulation and controlled release technologies which have not yet been addressed by any existing book on this matter, and secondly, it offers an in-depth discussion on the impact of encapsulation and controlled release technologies on the bioavailability of health ingredients and other actives. In common with the first edition the book includes chapters written by distinguished authors and researchers in their respective areas of specialization. This book is designed as a reference for scientists and formulators in the food, nutraceuticals and consumer products industries who are looking to formulate new or existing products using microencapsulated ingredients. It is also a post-graduate text designed to provide students with an introduction to encapsulation and controlled release along with detailed coverage of various encapsulation technologies and their adaptability to specific applications.

Summary : Consumer interest in supplementation with healthy omega-3 fatty acids (w3 FA) has led to increased research in fortification of popular foods with these healthy fats. Yogurt, which is already popular, offers a functional food matrix to fortify with w3 FA. Fish oil, a major source of two important long chain w3 FA eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an excellent source of w3 FA enrichment into foods but brings problems of oxidation and off-flavors or odors when added to foods. Encapsulation, deodorized fish oil, and flavoring have been investigated to reduce these off-flavors and odors in food products while producing a fish oil-fortified yogurt. Discrimination of butter, fish or oxidized fish oil at 0.5% (wt/wt) levels was investigated in unflavored low-fat (1%) yogurt using untrained panelists (n=31) and sensory triangle tests. Five sensory attributes (lime, sweet, heat, acid, oxidized) were analyzed by experienced sensory panelists (n=12) in chile-lime flavored yogurts with butter, fish or oxidized fish oils added at low (0.43%) and high (1% wt/wt) levels. Analytical analysis for composition, fatty acid profile, and volatile chemistry of the yogurts was conducted. Consumer acceptance of a low-fat (1.5%) chile-lime flavored yogurt enriched with fish oil was investigated using a 9-point hedonic scale (1="dislike extremely", 9="like extremely"). Untrained panelists (n=31) were unable to differentiate 0.5% (wt/wt) levels of fish and butter oils in unflavored yogurts but were able to detect oxidized fish oil compared to butter or fish oil under in the same conditions. Experienced panelists (n=12) found significant differences (p

Summary : The physical-chemical properties of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) enable it to facilitate rapid biochemical processes in the membrane. This effect has numerous benefits, including those involved in the growth of bacteria, rapid energy generation, human vision, brain impulse, and photosynthesis, to name a few. Yet DHA also carries risks that can lead to cellular death and disease. Omega-3 Fatty Acids and the DHA Principle explores the roles of omega-3 fatty acids in cellular membranes ranging from human neurons and swimming sperm to deep sea bacteria, and develops a principle by which to assess their benefits and risks. The DHA Principle states that the blending of lipids to form cellular membranes is evolutionarily-honed to maximize benefit while minimizing risk, and that a complex blending code involving conformational dynamics, energy stress, energy yield, and chemical stability underlies all cellular membranes. This book lays the groundwork to understanding this code. It examines the evolution of DHA and the membrane and explores the general properties of omega-3s and other membrane lipids. It then focuses on cellular biology before shifting to a practical discussion on applications. The authors discuss the DHA Principle as applied to petroleum degradation, winemaking, global warming, molecular farming, aging, neurodegenerative diseases, and the prevention of colon cancer. Reflecting the increased public interest that has emerged over the years, this volume uses an integrative approach to explain the complex roles of omega-3s in the membrane. Incorporating principles from chemistry, cellular biology, evolution, and ecology, this work gives researchers in a variety of fields the building blocks to stimulate further study.
