Book Description

A growing body of scientific evidence has revealed that many food peptides exhibit specific biological activities in addition to their established nutritional value. Bioactive peptides present in foods may help reduce the worldwide epidemic of chronic diseases that account for a great number of premature deaths annually. Bioactive peptides can be defined as isolated small fragments of proteins which provide some physiological health benefits. They act as potential modifiers reducing the risk of many chronic diseases.

Bioactive Peptides from Food: Sources, Analysis, and Functions considers fundamental concepts, sources, hydrolysis, fractionation, purification, analysis, chemical synthesis, functions, and regulatory status of nutraceutical bioactive peptides. Methods of isolation of these peptides from different protein sources with their in vitro and vivo physiological effects are addressed. Divided into seven sections, this book delves into how these peptides play a major role in the development of various functional foods. Numerous bioactive peptides have been reported in recent years as naturally present or generated from food proteins of different origins like milk, eggs, soya, fish, and meat.

Key Features:

  • Includes a detailed study of the different sources of bioactive peptides
  • Discusses the health benefits, such as antimicrobial, antiallergic, antihypertensive, antitumor, and immunomodulatory properties of peptides
  • Explorates the state of the art analysis methods of peptides
  • Discovers the bioinformatics of possible bioactive peptides

Written by experts in their field from around the world, Bioactive Peptides from Food reveals the world of databases of peptides. It is a great resource for food scientists, technologists, chemists, nutrition researchers, producers, and processors working in the whole food science and technology field as well as those who are interested in the development of innovative functional products.

Semih Ötleş, M.Sc, Ph.D.

A native of Izmir, Turkey, Professor Otles obtained his B.Sc. degree from the Department of Food Engineering (Ege University) in 1980. During his assistantship at Ege University, in 1985, he received a M.S. in Food Chemistry, and in 1989, after completing his thesis research on the instrumental analysis and chemistry of vitamins in foods he received a Ph.D. in Food Chemistry from Ege University. In 1991-92, he completed postdoctoral training on meat proteins including OECD – Postdoctoral Fellowship, in the Research Center Melle at Gent University, Belgium. Afterword, he joined the Department of Food Engineering at Ege University as a scientist of Food Chemistry, being promoted to Associate Professor in 1993 and to Professor in 2000. He was Vice Dean at Engineering Faculty (2003-2009), Head of the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics (2008-2011), and Vice Rector in Ege University (2012-2016). The research activities of Professor Otles have been focused on instrumental methods of food analysis. Otles began a series of projects on the separation and instrumental analysis techniques, first for analysis of vitamins in foods, then protein chemistry, carbohydrates, carotenoids, proteomics, and most recently bioactive peptides. Other activies span the fields of instrumental food analysis like UPLC, GC, GC/MS, LC/MS/MS analysis, hyphenated techniques, soy chemistry, aromatics, medical & functional foods and nutraceutical chemistry. Included are multiresidue analysis of various foods, n-3 fatty acids in fish oils, and medical & functional foods.
