From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nutraceutical is a portmanteau of "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical" and refers to foods claimed to have a medicinal effect on human health. Such foods are also called functional foods. It can also refer to individual chemicals present in common foods. Many such nutraceuticals are phytonutrients.The name was coined by Dr. Stephen Defelice in 1989.
Examples of claims made for nutraceuticals are red wine (resveratrol) as an antioxidant and an anticholesterolemic, broccoli (sulforaphane) as a cancer preventative, and soy and clover (isoflavonoids) to improve arterial health in women. Such claims are being researched and many citations are available via PubMed to ascertain their veracity.
Several nutraceuticals are known. Some examples are flavinoids, antioxidants such as gamma-linolenic acid, beta carotene, anthocyanins, etc. With the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), USA, several other compounds were added to the list of supplements originally mentioned in FDA notification. Thus many botanical and herbal extracts such as Ginseng, garlic oil,etc found place as nutraceuticals.
Nutraceuticals are often used in nutrient premixes or nutrient systems in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Quality Management of Nutraceuticals
Chi-Tang Ho and Qun Yi Zheng
The market of nutraceuticals, functional foods, and food supplements is a growing field due to consumer concerns and awareness of health. However, the quality of the products in the field is not well controlled. This volume examines the chemical and biological quality management of nutraceuticals and is divided into three sections. The first provides an overview on the topic and reviews several important classes of nutraceutical compounds, flavonoids, anthocyanins, and marine nutraceuticals. Examples of the chemical analysis of several nutraceutical products on the market such as goldenseal, saw palmetto, green tea, cocoa, and black cohosh are discussed in the second section of the volume. The final section gives the bioactivity of several nutraceutical products such as ginger and gum guggal.
"The 21 papers of this volume, first presented at a symposium in August 2000 in Washington DC, are divided into sections that consider analysis of specific nutraceuticals--including black cohosh, saw palmatto, noni, cranberry, tea, and cocoa--and bioactivity studies. Individual topics include an overview of marine nutraceuticals, marker compounds of herbs and their bioavailability, methods and analysis of anthocyanins, analysis of flavonoids in botanicals, antioxidants in the ginger family, and antioxidant activity of flavanols and flavonoid glycosides in oolong tea. Reflecting the affiliations either in industry or academia of the international group of contributors, Ho is in food science at Rutgers U. and Zheng works for a botanical industry in New Jersey."--SciTech Book News
