This book summarizes recent advances in the chemistry, bioactivity, nutrition, and functional aspects of dietary phytochemicals, as well as the health and functional aspects of foods rich in phytochemicals. Consisting of forty-four chapters, it discusses the different chemical types of phytochemicals in our diets and food and presents data collected from animal or human experiments that are directly related to human health. Each chapter covers the chemistry, epidemiological study, bioavailability, bioactivity (animal experiments) function in humans and safety, as well as products on the market. Moreover, the more than 200 figures make it easy to grasp the main findings in each area.

Prof. Dr. D.H.C. Yoshinori Asakawa first studied biology at the Tokushima University, then went to graduate school at Hiroshima University in 1964 and studied organic chemistry, and obtained his PhD degree there and was appointed as a research assistant. Then, Prof. Asakawa went to the Université Louis Pasteur, France, as a postdoctoral fellow, where he worked for 2 years (1972–1974) with Prof. Guy Ourisson, one of the most original natural product chemists worldwide. In 1976 he moved to Tokushima Bunri University as an associate professor, and was promoted to full professor in 1981. Prof. Asakawa served as dean twice, and since 1986, he is director of the Institute of Pharmacology.
Prof. Asakawa is the former editor of Phytomedicine and Spectroscopy, and serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Natural Products, Phytochemistry, Phytochemistry Letters, Planta Medica, Current Chemistry and Biology, Fitoterapia, Flavour and Fragrance Journal, Natural Product Research, Natural Product Communications, Arkivoc and Malaysian Journal of Sciences, among others.
