During last couple of decades, a great deal of research has explored what exactly plants contain (bioactives) and how these molecules may interact with human physiology at the molecular level. It is extremely important to know what happens to plant bioactives or their biological activities when processed or isolated under various reaction conditions. Huge numbers of extraction or food manufacturing methodologies are adversely affecting the quality of these phytonutrients so there is a prompt need to highlight these processes/methods and replace them with more novel, efficient, green, or eco-friendly ones. A Centum of Valuable Plant Bioactives is a comprehensive resource on the top 100 plant bioactives available.

This is an essential guide for botanists, food technologists and chemists, nutritionists and pharmacists. Highlights the top 100 plant bioactives, their biogenesis, distribution, extraction/purification, and metabolism Contains the latest advances in botanic biology, analytical chemistry and food technology Explores potential applications including food additives, digestion and health, chemoprevention and biotherapy
