This book presents not only the discovery, utilization, and control of bioactive components and functional foods, but also the processes and scientific research which lead to these inventive and modern treatment methods. The book is divided into eight parts; each part has many chapters devoted to different theme.

Part one:
Functional food ingredients and bioactive compounds: sources and potential benefits in public health      
Many functional foods, like curd, fruits, vegetables, wheat, and many other carry countless health-enhancing and disease-preventing bioactive agents. The first part of our book provides information from where you can get these agents. Various foods carrying bioactive components have researched by the scientists all over the world: their investigations had added tremendous knowledge about functional foods and their benefits. We tried to pack their erudite experiences in this chapter that you will feel proud to pick on.

Part two:
Functional food upgrade: Delivery of bioactive compounds in every day foods and beverages       
Particle size and mode of delivery plays an import role in the optimal benefit of the bioactive components for instance, some foods gives their maximum when stored at low temperature, and some when grinded to specific particle size. This chapter provides excerpts from researchers that focus on what is the optimal delivery method of bioactive compounds within functional foods,

Part three:
Turning agricultural and food byproducts into functional food ingredients
Functional food ingredients are not limited to the food we eat. Certain byproducts can also supply us with these agents. Also, modifying the agricultural practices can give us produce that have the qualities of bioactive components. 
Part four:
Diet, heart and brain health
This chapter focuses on protective effects of functional foods, like garlic, dates, and others on the major organs. heart, brain, and liver are major organs whose functioning carry great significance in our lives – read this chapter to know how functional foods significantly enhance the growth performance in animal models by targeting the important organs. 

Part five:
The effects of bioactive compounds and functional foods on biomarkers of chronic disorders
This chapter reveals how functional foods can mould the blood parameters, and other parameters of cancer, bone health and various other diseases. Read the interesting topics that reflects the research of scientists from different geographies.

Part six:
Functional and medical foods with bioactive compounds for the management of chronic diseases                                                                                    
Many chronic diseases, like cancer, cardiovascular, anemia, Alzheimer pose a great threat to our society. Researchers have tested many known and unknown functional foods to manage these chronic disorders. You will learn how you can turn the functional foods around you, like probiotics, green tea, bay leaf, and many others into cost-effective medicines to manage any chronic ailment you or your family member may be suffering from.

Part seven:
Legislation on health claims: healthy, functional and medical foods
This chapter throws light on how regulatory authorities in different countries influence the food and nutritional clinical research; what are the threats and how does it affects the health claims.
Part eight:
Research and development of new functional food products           
This chapter deals with the interesting topics that showcase the novel research on functional foods. Some of the intriguing research topics are ‘Encapsulation of probiotic bacteria by double emulsion, followed by spray-draying’ and ‘Water Treatment by Magnetic Field: Increases in the bone mineral density of rats’.
In nutshell this book is must have for the people who wants to benefit from nature’s way of treating and preventing general and chronic diseases. In this books many experts from all over the world has contributed their novel findings about functional foods making it a treasure of good health. This issue not only preserves the numerous ideas and contributions made in the field of functional food, but lays the foundation for a field of science that will undoubtedly logarithmically expand in the coming years, changing modern society’s relationship with medicine.
