about this item

Peanut: friend or foe? This work gathers researchers and practitioners in allergen detection, nutrition sciences, agricultural research, food manufacturing, and food allergy research to ponder the question. They offer a detailed overview of positive bioactive compounds and negative allergen compounds in peanut kernels, and provide info on bioengineering and allergen management. On the positive side of peanuts, chapters examine peanut fatty acids and their impacts on human health, biosynthesis and bioproduction of peanut phytoalexins, and antioxidant components in peanuts. The dark side of the peanut is explored in chapters on allergenic proteins in peanuts, risk analysis for food allergens with peanuts as an example, and industry allergen management and current initiatives in food manufacturing, again with peanuts as an example. There are two chapters on immunoanalytic techniques for peanut allergen detection, and two chapters on breeding and bioengineering of hypoallergenic peanuts and enhanced functional food traits. There is also information on oral immunotherapy for treatment of peanut allergy. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
