Science and Technology of Fructans Excerpt :

The first book to be published on the subject of fructans, Science and Technology of Fructans provides a thorough treatment of this carbohydrate from recent research in a broad range of disciplines to applications in crop, animal and food science. This volume includes a detailed glossary and offers a terminology system that can be used by all fructan scientists. It also reviews modern analytical methods and Japanese and European technologies for commercial production and use of fructans. Topics covered by contributors to Science and Technology of Fructans include chemical structure and characteristics, metabolism in microorganisms and plants, fructans in crop production and preservation and in human and animal diets, and production and utilization of microbial fructans and inulin. A chapter by J.S.D. Bacon and J. Edelman, who established the modern biochemistry of fructans in the mid-20th century, includes personal reminiscences of the early years of fructan research. Since this volume crosses all disciplinary boundaries of fructan research, Science and Technology of Fructans is indispensable to biochemists; carbohydrate chemists; analytical chemists; and crop, horticultural, animal, and food scientists. It will also be useful reading for nutritionists, agricultural extension workers, and members of the food industry.

Human Microbiota in Health and Disease Excerpt :

Human Gut Microbiota in Health and Disease: From Pathogenesis to Therapy is a comprehensive discussion on all the aspects associated with the early colonization of gut microbiota, its development and maintenance, and its symbiotic relationship with the host in promoting health. Chapters illustrate the complex mechanisms and metabolic signaling pathways related to how the gut microbiota maintain proper regulation of glucose, lipid and energy homeostasis and immune response, all while mediating inflammatory processes involved in the etiology of many chronic disease conditions. With today's common use of pharmaceutical medicine in treating symptoms and frequent overuse of antibiotics in chronic disease within mainstream medical practice, our understanding of the etiological mechanisms of dysbiosis-induced chronic disease and natural approaches to prevention and potential cures for these diseases is of vital importance to overall human health. Details the complex relationship between human microbiota in the gut, oral cavity and skin as well as their colonization, development and impact of factors that influence the relationship Illustrates the mechanisms associated with dysbiosis-associated inflammation and its role in the onset and progression in chronic disease Provides the primary mechanisms and comprehensive scientific evidence for the use of dietary modification and pro- and prebiotics in preventing chronic disease
