More About This Textbook


Written for the upper-level undergrad or graduate level majors course, Advanced Human Nutrition, Third Edition provides an in-depth overview of the human body and details why nutrients are important from a biochemical, physiological, and molecular perspective. Through its writing style and numerous figures and illustrations, the Third Edition clearly outlines metabolism and the molecular functions of nutrients. A variety of pedagogical elements within the text, such as “Here’s Where You Have Been” and “Here’s Where You Are Going,” help clarify key points from the chapter and provide real-world examples that bring the content to life.

New and Key Features of the Third Edition:
• Includes new chapters on Fiber and Nutraceuricals and Functional Foods
• “Before You Go On” sections asks students to reflect upon what they’ve just read, urging them to go back and re-read portions of the text if they do not readily grasp the material.
• “Special Feature” boxes on focused topics add depth to the chapter and, in some cases, allow the student to view the application of basic science.
• The end-of-chapter summary reiterates key points from the chapter and helps students prepare for future exams.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book covers all aspects of the basic nutrients and their purposes. Published just two years after the previous edition, this update was necessary due to the ongoing research in nutrition. This edition also includes far more figures and tables than its predecessor.
Purpose: The book assumes that readers have completed courses in introductory nutrition, biochemistry, and anatomy and physiology. It is meant for nutrition/dietetics majors or those beginning master of science degrees.
Audience: The audience is higher level students with a solid background in nutrition. Both authors are PhDs and registered dietitians.
Features: Each chapter starts with a set of objectives as well as a list of bullet points highlighting the material covered in the previous chapter ("Here's Where You Have Been" and "Here's Where You Are Going"). The majority of the chapters include special features sections. For example, the chapter on nutrition, exercise, and athletic performance includes a thorough overview of the current research on caffeine and athletic performance. This section has been slightly updated from the second edition. Two new chapters cover fiber (previously part of the carbohydrates chapter) and nutraceuticals and functional foods. All the chapters include a "Before You Go On" section that presents questions that readers can use to assess if they have absorbed the key concepts of that chapter. The book also includes a companion website, which features animated flashcards, matching exercises, and nutrition science animations.
Assessment: This continues to be a solid textbook for nutrition majors and master of science students. It is also a good reference for practicing dietitians to use as a refresher on the basics of nutrition.
