Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Functional foods are gaining wider significance in this era of metabolic diseases. Functional foods not only provide nutrition requirements but also possess health benefits for many diseases. Research interest surrounding functional foods, composition, and their mechanisms of action (involved in promoting human health, protection, and management against different diseases) has grown. The research topic will co-ordinate between diverse groups of researchers to contribute towards the potential health benefits of various indigenous natural products and its sources.

This Special Issue is dedicated to exploiting the chemistry, composition, and biological activity of natural products used as ingredients, as well as the formulations and uses of functional foods (which represent a new frontier for therapy and the promotion of human health).

Dr. Chethan Sampath
