Food & Function

The main factors limiting the use of bioactives in food applications are shown in Fig. 2. Bioactive ingredients are gen- erally prone to degradation, both during storage and food pro- cessing, as many of them are physically, chemically and/or enzymatically unstable leading to their degradation or trans- formation with the consequent loss of bioactivity. In many cases the mechanism involved in the degradation of these bioactive molecules is very complex and still unknown.5,8 Wu et al.9 reported the reduction of the anthocyanin content in blackberry fruits after six months of canned and jam storage and also after drying treatment. Various types of cereals (wheat, barley and oat) were also tested for the content of bio- logically active compounds, such as tocopherols, phenolic compounds and microelements, and after hydrothermal processing, the concentration of these molecules severely decreased.10 Rawson et al.11 described major losses of bio- active compounds after processing exotic fruits such as mangoes, açaí, pineapple and pitanga, subjecting them to heat treatments, pasteurization and drying, canning and even to storage processing steps. All these processes affect, to a lesser or greater extent, the stability, chemical characteristics, con- centration, and even antioxidant activity of a number of com- pounds such as vitamins and phenolic compounds. Another study that describes the modifications occurring in fruits and vegetables during the processing steps was published by Nicoli

1.2. The problems related to the use of free bioactives

Despite the known beneficial health effects of natural bioactive matrices and isolated individual compounds, as will be dis- cussed in this section, they show some fragility that has to be considered regarding their direct use or incorporation into foods.

Number of research articles and reviews, and patents published in the period from 1970 to 2014 regarding functional foods (obtained on web of science, October 2014; keyword: functional food).
