The development of products for the prevention of diseases derived from oxidation reactions in humans is an essential contribution to the improvement of their quality of life. However, to achieve this purpose it is essential to identify scientific and technological aspects that allow to preserve the faculties that plant materials have to counteract oxidation reactions. Based on the above, the objective of this study was to perform a bibliometric analysis of the application of engineering processing strategies in food plant materials for the prevention of diseases derived from oxidative stress in humans. Methodologically, a systematic search process was carried out using a search equation in scientific and freely accessible databases. The results obtained were processed using descriptive techniques, creation of bibliographic coupling networks (Network) and analysis of association strength of bibliographic coupling (normalization). The results were visualized through multiple correspondence analysis in qualitative variables, network mappings and identification of common concepts by K-means grouping (cluster). The results allowed to identify the contribution to the central theme from two clusters. One of them focused on engineering aspects related to the application of instrumental techniques for the analysis, design and development of products for disease prevention and the other, oriented towards the pharmaceutical area and possibly the development of medicines. It is concluded that the central topic of the study is an area of interest for many countries of the world that are making contributions from their perspectives supported by the formation of cooperation networks. Among them, the generation of knowledge in Asian countries such as China stands out, which leads the scientific production oriented towards the application of engineering and pharmaceutical strategies for the prevention of diseases based on food.
