412 pages


Part of the Functional Food Science and Technology book series (Series Editor: Fereidoon Shahidi), this book compiles the current science based upon nutrigenomics and proteomics in food and health. Coverage includes many important nutraceuticals (food factors) and their impact on gene interaction and health. Authored by a stellar international team of multidisciplinary researchers, this book acquaints food and nutrition professionals with these new fields of nutrition research and conveys the state of the science to date.

"Nutrigenomics and Proteomics in Health and Disease contains a wealth of information, though because of the variety of contributors its focus is somewhat scattered - it does not even aim to provide a ‘conclusive' view (if such was even possible), but rather a variety of perspectives and different kinds of research." (, 7 October 2010)

  • Key resource for current researchers and practitioners in nutrigenomics
  • Describes links between foods, diseases and health
  • Extensive, rigorous coverage of food factors-gene interactions
  • Respected international collection of editors and authors
