Metals in health & nutrition

Vitamin pills with different metals indicated on eachMetals play an important role in human health and nutrition.  Some, such as zinc, copper and iron have vital roles within the body and therefore regular intake is essential.  However, an excess of these metals, or consumption of metal contaminants such as cadmium or arsenic, can have significant detrimental effects on our health.

 The collection of articles below encompasses all aspects of metals in health from their dietary sources and quantitative analysis to the impact these metals can have on our health.  Enjoy these articles from Analytical Methods, Food & Function and Metallomics for free*

The physical structure of food

The structure of foods plays a vital role in the way foods are perceived and processed by the body.  It can direct how a food will be digested and where it will release important bioactive compounds or conversely toxic substances into the body.  It can also play an important part in foods which have been made ‘healthier’, like reduced fat products.   Novel structuring can enable these foods to fool our sensory organs into thinking that there is no difference in the taste or texture of the food. 

Below is a selection of high quality articles published in Food & Function in this area.  Enjoy all these articles for free!*
