The broad applicability of bioactive delivery systems for improving food quality, safety, and human health will make this book a valuable resource for a wide range of readers in industry, research, and academia.

Functional foods is an emerging trend in the food industry, whose potential value is determined by whether they are safe with respect to consumer health. Nanotechnology in Functional Foods was written to help the reader better understand the benefits and concerns associated with these foods. In addition to giving an overview of the current state-of-the-art in functional foods, different aspects of the advanced research being conducted on their extraction, synthesis, analysis, and biological effects are presented. Besides focusing on several synthesis techniques, the book also discusses the application of nanoparticles in nutrient delivery and pharmaceuticals, such as nano-emulsions, solid lipid nanoparticles, and polymeric nanoparticles; their properties and interactions with other food components and their impact on the human body; the consumer acceptance and diversification of these nutrients. Moreover, new trends are discussed concerning the application of artificial intelligence in screening various components of functional foods.

The book will be central to food scientists, materials scientists, biotechnologists, medicinal chemists, pharmacists, and medical professionals.
