Beer in Health and Disease Prevention is the single comprehensive volume needed to understand beer and beer-related science. Presenting both the concerns and problems of beer consumption as well as the emerging evidence of benefit, this book offers a balanced view of today's findings and the potential of tomorrow's research.

Just as wine in moderation has been proposed to promote health, research is showing that beer - and the ingredients in beer - can have similar impact on improving health, and in some instances preventing disease. This book addresses the impact of beer and beer ingredients on cancers, cardiovascular disease, anti-oxidant benefits, and other health related concerns. It offers a holistic view from beer brewing to the isolation of beer-related compounds. It contains self-contained chapters written by subject matter experts.

This book is recommended for scientists and researchers from a variety of fields and industries from beer production to health-care professionals.

  • Winner of the 2009 Best Drinks and Health Book in the World - Gourmand World Cookbook Awards
  • The most comprehensive coverage of the broad range of topics related to the role of beer and beer ingredients in health
  • Addresses the impact of beer and beer ingredients on cancers, cardiovascular disease, anti-oxidant benefits, and other health related concerns
