About this title


Functional dairy products have been the focus of intense research and product development over the last two decades. At last, this valuable information has been compiled into one resource that reveals key advances in functional dairy ingredients and products and identifies directions for marketing and product development.
Handbook of Functional Dairy Products explores the product development process and the market dynamics driving product innovation. Chapters examine specific ingredients and products, safety and technology issues, the impact of biotechnology, the regulatory environment, and the communication of health benefits. Emphasis is placed on the potential contribution of functional dairy products in the maintenance of health and prevention of disease, and includes in-depth discussions of the selection, production, and benefits of probiotics, dairy-derived carbohydrates and prebiotics, bioactive peptides, the immune modulating effects of dairy ingredients, the health effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and calcium and iron fortification.
With a wealth of new research findings and insightful guidance for food product developers, this comprehensive reference is a must for everyone involved in the science, development, and marketing of functional dairy products.


"This book is one of a very few that address functional dairy products in human nutrition by using leading edge scientific research to lead the discussion. Written and edited at a high scholarly level, this title should be of interest to those interested in research trends in functional foods, to food manufacturers who are developing functional diary foods, and to libraries that collect for food and dairy scientists." - Journal of Agricultural & Food Information, Vol. 5, No. 2, 2003 "A number of chapters should provide excellent 'introductions' for postgraduate students about to embark upon a research project. Perhaps even more valuable though are the final chapters that deal with the translation of research findings into 'health claims' or advice for the general public[T]his book is an extremely useful addition to the literature, in that not only does it provide an up-to-date review of the potential value of ingesting functional dairy foods but it seeks also to look at this information as it might be viewed by the media, consumers, and the food industry[It] raises some issues that need to be addressed." -International Journal of Dairy Technology, Vol. 58, No. 2, May 2005 "There are copious figures and tables, which are well labeled and effectively support the text. Handbook of Functional Dairy Products is highly recommended for academic libraries with relevant areas of study and research. Several chapters contain significant amounts of information that may make this item a useful addition for public libraries as well." - E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 9, Sept. 2004
