About this book

Beverages are consumed in every human culture and, as a major part of the new diet of affluence, can either enhance our health or be the cause of acute and chronic diseases. In Beverages in Nutrition and Health, an international panel of renowned authors-drawn from universities, research institutions, industry, and public advocacy and health care organizations-comprehensively reviews how the beverages we drink affect our health and nutrition. The authors discuss the health effects of a wide range of popular beverages, including alcohol, wine, fruit and vegetable juices, coffee and tea, chocolate, milk and milk products, weight management beverages, and soft drinks. Among the topics of major current interest considered are the beneficial effects of wine, the harmful interactions of citrus juices with prescription drugs, tomato juice as an anticancer agent, the benefits of herbal teas, probiotic organisms in dairy and fermented dairy products, the value of sports beverages, the risks associated with the consumption of soft drinks, and the quality and content of bottled water. Additional chapters detail the regulation of both beverage content and the marketing practices used to promote their consumption.
Comprehensive and authoritative, Beverages in Nutrition and Health offers food scientists, nutritionists, public health specialists, and those involved in the research and development of new beverages an exhaustive survey of how common beverages impact our health and nutrition, as well as a basis for research designed to produce healthier beverages.

Reviews

Foreword by David R. Jacobs, Jr., PhD, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
"This book is unique in that it constitutes a comprehensive review of a nutritional subfield, namely the nutrition of beverages. . .A strength of this book is that most sections contain several chapters that provide complementary views on each topic. "

"We all drink beverages every day, yet, surprisingly, there is no single book that focuses, in an authoritative, scholarly manner, on this subject. The book will be of interest to food scientists, nutritionists, and public health specialists; it will be essential reading and a standard reference for individuals in the food and beverage industry. In addition, the book will be an invaluable aid for those involved in new product development. Accordingly, Beverages in Nutrition and Health will be a required purchase for academic libraries that support food science programs and public health graduate studies, as well for industry-specific special libraries." -E-STREAMS

"Beverages in Nutrition and Health is an informative and interesting book that brings together a wealth of knowledge on this long overlooked area of nutrition. The book will be a most useful addition to the collection of nutritionists and other health professionals." - Trends in Food Science & Technology

"...a comprehensive treatise exploring the importance of beverages in the contemporary diet." - Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics
