About The Book

Fish oils have been high on the nutritional agenda for many years now, with the body of research into the beneficial health effects of long chain fatty acids growing each year. The use of fish oils and their constituent fatty acids as functional ingredients, added to an increasing number of products has grown with improved processing techniques and the ability to stabilise and protect these oils in foods such as milk, cheese, yogurts and fat spreads.

The fourth in a series of Handbooks edited by Dr Barry Rossell, the book is a very useful source of information for all those working in the food industry with any involvement in the use of, or research into, fish oils.

  • Fatty acids in fish oils
  • Processing methodology
  • The nutritional benefits of fish oils
