Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The use of dietary vegetables and medicinal herbs to improve health is a phenomenon that is taking society by storm. Herbal products are now a multi-billion dollar business. Even more important, this business is built upon extremely little research data. The FDA is pushing the industry-with Congress' help- to base their claims and products on scientific phenomena. Vegetables, Fruits, and Herbs in Health Promotion discusses the most effective ways of conducting research geared toward deriving maximum nutritional benefit from vegetables, fruits, and herbs. The book addresses such questions as: o How much vegetables and herbs should be consumed? o Can extracts or components be useful replacements for vegetable consumption? o Does red wine reduce the risk of heart disease, and if so, what are the active agents and mechanisms? Increased consumption of vegetables and herbs promotes health, increases longevity, and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease. Vegetables, Fruits, and Herbs in Health Promotion is an invaluable reference for providing you with the knowledge necessary for fostering positive changes in dietary habits.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Fruits, vegetables and herbs are agricultural products that could be contaminated with biological, chemical or physical hazards. Contamination could occur in the growing environment, after harvest, during preparation for storage and processing, in shipping to the market, in food service establishments, and/or in the home. The increasing number of produce-related outbreaks in industrialized countries has raised awareness to interventions that remove human pathogens from fresh produce. However, contamination of produce has always been a concern in the developing regions of the world which lack basic sanitary conditions. Chlorinated water has been widely used to sanitize fresh produce, but not enough to ensure the microbial safety of produce. The efficacy of several other chemical agents has been evaluated as potential alternatives to chlorine. Also, alternatives or modified methods have been also proposed such as MAP, irradiation, pulsed energy processing, etc.; however, none have yet gained widespread acceptance by the industry. To date the most important measures to ensure safety of fruits and vegetables remains prevention of contamination through the application of systems such as GAP.
