This book will discuss the major lipid types in food, including a chemical, nutritional and biotechnological perspective. Recommendations by many academic and governmental bodies are proposed that daily intakes on long chain omega-3 fatty acids be increased as a step in reducing certain chronic diseases. The book also discusses the importance and chemistry of lipids in the human diet and includes a comparison of dietary recommendations for lipid intake. This is a valuable reference for researchers and graduate students in food chemistry and nutrition.
