Summary, etc.: Annotation Cardiovascular disease and diabetes pose a serious and growing risk to the health of the population in the developed world. This important collection reviews dietary influences on these diseases and the ways individual functional foods can help prevent them. CONTENTS The potential and limits of functional foods in preventing cardiovascular disease; Assessing health claims for functional foods.

Part 2 Phytochemicals and cardiovascular disease: Flavonoids and cardiovascular disease; Isoflavones and coronary heart disease; Plant sterols and cholesterol reduction; Garlic and cardiovascular disease. Part 3 Controlling dietary fat: Diet, oxidative stress and cardiovascular disease; Dietary fat, pregnancy and the prevention of heart disease; Developing polyunsaturated fatty acids as functional ingredients; Marine micro-organisms as new sources of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs); Developments in fat replacers. Part 4 Starch and other functional ingredients: Starch in food, diabetes and coronary heart disease; The use of cereal beta-glucans to control diabetes and cardiovascular disease; Grain legumes and the prevention of cardiovascular disease; Food fermentation by lactic acid bacteria for the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
