disease, as well as peer-reviewed literature references. In
addition, this thorough reference contains 172 chemical structures,
102 figures, 73 schemes, and 64 tables to facilitate recognition
and understanding. Concise and accessible, the Dictionary of
Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods is a convenientsingle source
reference that defines the most commonly used terms in the field of
nutraceuticals and functional foods.
