Abstract

The marine world represents a largely untapped reservoir of bioactive ingredients that can be applied in numerous aspects of food processing, storage, and fortification. These marine-derived functional ingredients such as certain polysaccharides, polyphenols, polyunsaturated fatty acids and carotenoids have a wide role as nutraceutical in improving human health and nutrition. These compounds have been widely used and have a greater potential to be utilized as nutraceuticals in the dairy industry.
