Abstract
U posljednje vrijeme sve je veći interesa za prehrambenim proizvodima koji imaju pozitivan utjecaj na zdravlje ljudi. Uloga koju igra prehrana u prevenciji i liječenju mnogih bolesti postala je široko prihvaćena. U tom kontekstu biljne vrste iz roda Ocimum, posebno O. basilicum, zaslužuju posebnu pažnju jer proizvode sekundarne metabolite koji pak imaju široku lepezu pozitivnih svojstava na ljudsko zdravlje. Među najvažnijima su antioksidativna, antimikrobna i protuupalna svojstva. Postoji sve veći broj istraživanja koja naglašavaju primjenjivost tih biljaka kao izvora funkcionalne hrane. Cilj ovog diplomskog rada bio je dati pregled pozitivnih svojstava vrste O. basilicum koja mu daju čvrstu znanstvenu osnovu za vezu između hrane i zdravstvenih benefita.
