Carotenoids Volume 5: Nutrition and Health Britton G, Liaaen-Jensen S, and Pfander H (eds.). Carotenoids Volume 5: Nutrition and Health. Basel: Birkhäuser, 2009. ISBN: 9783764375003. Britton G, Liaaen-Jensen S, and Pfander H (eds.). Carotenoids Volume 5: Nutrition and Health. Basel: Birkhäuser, 2009. ISBN: 9783764375003. This final volume of the Carotenoids book series – which details the fundamental chemistry of carotenoids, basic methods used in its research, and critical discussions of its biochemistry, functions and applications – focuses on carotenoids in human health and nutrition. The era of ‘functional foods’ began with the identification of chemical components of foods as important micronutrients. Carotenoids have featured highly among such micronutrients. Volume 5 traces the carotenoid story from food to biological actions, following on from the foundation provided in its companion Volume 4 on the fundamental properties of carotenoids. Other volumes in the series also provide key information relevant to studies of biological functions and actions. Volume 5 consists of three parts. Part 1, on nutrition, covers carotenoids as dietary sources and supplements as well as their bioavailability. Part 2 discusses the actions of carotenoids and practical approaches that are beneficial to human health, like epidemiology and intervention trials, in vitro studies,and studies of anti-oxidant and pro-oxidant effects. Part 3 describes the protective effects of carotenoids against diseases, like cancer, coronary heart disease, and eye and skin diseases, and effects on the immune system.
