BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS & FOOD ADDITIVES

Big picture

Does cinnamon influence blood sugar?

Does black pepper affect fat cell production?

Do artificial food dyes cause hyperactive behavior?

Can broccoli help prevent cancer?

These examples represent compounds that are frequently consumed, yet rarely discussed.


Bioactive food compounds (BAFC) are components in food that have biological activity in the body, yet have no disease associated with their absence.


Food additives are usually meant to affect a food quality, but by proxy can also have biological effects on the body.
