Human nutrition is a multifaceted, complex, and broad scientific field, demonstrating how food components, ingredients and flavors present required nourishment for the life-sustaining [34]. Since the dawn of civilization, food and nutrition components have been obligated to maintain human life by releasing energy [11]. However, over the decades, human nutrition has been widely considered as a promising resource to treat and/or prevent diseases
