Most food nutrition contains the phytochemicals for human health. Carotenoids and polyphenols, such as flavonoids and phenolic acids, might be especially responsible for their anti-oxidative capacity in vegetables and fruits. This volume will also focus on the relationship between their structure and functions. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
