The significance of marine-sourced functional food ingredients has been attributed to health promotion and/or disease risk reduction. This fact underlines the necessity of knowledge regarding their mechanism of action.
The aim of the current Special Issue is to present Marine-sourced Functional Food Ingredients such as omega-3 fatty acids, protein hydrolysates, polysaccharides, carotenoids, polyphenolic compounds, enzymes, etc., regarding their structure, function, and health benefits.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and comprehensive reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
Fish, marine mammals and marine-derived fungi and algae omega-3 fatty acids; protein hydrolysates; chitosan; carotenoids; and enzymes.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
