About this book

Fruits and vegetables are among the richest sources of many compounds that promote health including vitamins, antioxidants and other bio-active compounds. Health experts generally agree that these types of compounds are responsible for the health benefits associated with increased dietary intakes of fresh fruit and vegetables, reducing the incidence of certain cancers and chronic diseases.

Health-Promoting Properties of Fruits and Vegetables collectively discusses and reviews empirical data on the health promoting properties of all types of fresh produce. Detailed information is provided on the identity, nature, bioavailability, chemopreventive effects and post-harvest stability of specific chemical classes with known bioactive properties. Additional chapters discuss the various methodologies used for extraction, isolation, characterisation and quantification of bioactive compounds and the in vitro and in vivo assays used for identifying and assessing their anticancer properties.
