This book, Volume II of Functional Foods and Biotechnology focuses on the biotransformation and analysis of functional foods and ingredients. It describes the use of microbial sources, traditional fermentations and microbial bioprocessing of plant and animal substrates for functional foods and ingredients. Written for food scientist applying biotechnological processes, this book explores the diversity of plant food sources and metabolic innovations for functional food and ingredients and it focuses on plant and microbial-based concepts as source of functional foods and ingredients.

About the Editors

Dr. Shetty's research interests focus on the critical role of cellular and metabolic basis of oxygen biology for advancing new innovations in life sciences and especially agricultural and food innovations that advance global food security and health in a sustainable environment. This focus is contributing to very innovative advances in the areas of crops for health, post-harvest biology, nutraceuticals, functional foods and food antimicrobial strategies as critical innovations to advance food security in addition to malnutrition and hunger challenges. In particular, he has developed an innovative “crops for health” research platform to counter diet-linked chronic diseases. The rationale of this platform has relevance for managing malnutrition challenges from maternal to child health needs globally. Dipayan Sarkar, Ph.D, is a Research Associate at the Department of Plant Sciences, North Dakota State University, Fargo, North Dakota. He supervises research of graduate students and visiting scholars and work closely with local and global research, education, and outreach initiatives of the Global Institute of Food Security and International Agriculture (GIFSIA) at North Dakota State University. He received Bachelor in Agricultural Science (Hons.) and Master in Agronomy from India. Later he received Ph.D in “Plant Stress Physiology” from Department of Plant, Soil, and Insect Sciences at University of Massachusetts. He also worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at Department of Food Sciences of University of Massachusetts under the tutelage of Dr. Kalidas Shetty. His research interest is on metabolic regulation of plant and development of sustainable cropping systems based on sound ecological rationale to address global food security and public health challenges. Dipayan has published 21 peer-reviewed research papers, 6 book chapters, and many other reviews and abstracts. He is a board member of the American Council of Medicinally Active Plants and affiliated advisor for Kagoshima University Center for International Planning, Kagoshima, Japan.
