About the book

There is a global trend for a wide range of alternative nutrition and lifestyles such as vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, and raw foods diets, among others. This book addresses the impact of such alternative diets on health including their effects on coronary diseases, obesity, diabetes, and cancer as well as their deficiency of certain micronutrients. On the other hand, the adverse effects of increased animal-protein consumption on the environment and the economy derive from a growing societal concern. Therefore, food system sustainability including the revalorization of by-products and the replacement of animal-based foods with plant-based nutrition is a topic trend in food nutrition. Finally, the development of new and novel foods using insects, plants, algae, and the fortification of ingredients in foods are also interesting issues to address in this book. One of the challenges of our society is to achieve healthy food that is sustainable and safe but also provides us with optimum nutrition.
