Overview

Nutrition science has evolved considerably in the past decade with new concepts and discoveries. In response, advanced nutrition courses now encompass material on macronutrients and micronutrients, subjects that have traditionally been studied separately. The brand new edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism is a completely updated and expanded revision of two prior works, Advanced Nutrition Micronutrients and Advanced Nutrition Macronutrients, Second Edition, combined into one book for the first time.

As in the original editions, this book has been written for those with a background in biochemistry and physiology who may or may not have a background in nutrition and dietetics. The first half of the text introduces integral concepts in nutrition science, such as energy, regulation of food intake, nutritional biochemistry, cell cycle, nutrigenomics, and epigenetics.

The second portion of the book focuses on specific micronutrients and macronutrients with respect to their roles in metabolism. For ease of understanding, each chapter follows a specific format detailing each nutrient’s definition, absorption, use, and excretion. Chapters include discussions on protein, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. Woven throughout the text are topics of clinical interest such as obesity, diabetes, lipemia, renal disease, and other conditions influenced by nutrition.

New in this Edition:

  • Regulation of food intake and feeding behavior
  • Daily recommended nutrient intakes
  • Metabolism
  • Toxicology
  • Nutrigenomics, epigenetics, and gene expression
  • Cell cycle and life span nutrition

The book presents a wealth of illustrations, diagrams, and tables that make complex concepts easy to grasp. It also provides references and a glossary of terms. The accompanying CD-ROM includes PowerPoint® slides of additional material. These features make it a resource that will spend more time on the desktop than on the bookshelf.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Kathy Keiver
The author of this book covers the basic structure, function, and detailed metabolism of the macronutrients energy and water. She also includes detailed information regarding the interaction between the nutrients and genetics. This is the second edition of the book; the first edition was published in 1994. The purpose is to explain, review, and explore present knowledge and recent trends, developments, and advances in nutrition. This is a worthy objective, but not always met. For example, a discussion regarding the formulation of the DRIs is lacking (although the history of the formulation of RDAs is covered), as is discussion about the role of fiber in health and the controversies surrounding the use of glycemic index in the management of diabetes. The section on alcohol contains little new information from this field. According to the author, this book is written for a scholarly audience, but is thought to be of interest to the educated layman. The book is more suited to a scholarly audience. The author is a credible authority on much of the subject matter of this book. Although basic structure and functions of the macronutrients are covered, as well as assessment and measurement techniques, the strength of this book lies in the depth of discussion of the metabolism of these nutrients and their interaction with genetics. The genetic variants of chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are particularly well-covered, although the influences of diet on these diseases are not. Information is often presented in sections in which it does not seem to belong (e.g., apoptosis in the unit on water). This book is most suitable as a reference book, although sometimesinformation is hidden in unexpected sections, making it difficult to find. In particular, it contains detailed information regarding nutrient/gene interactions.

Description: The author of this book covers the basic structure, function, and detailed metabolism of the macronutrients energy and water. She also includes detailed information regarding the interaction between the nutrients and genetics. This is the second edition of the book; the first edition was published in 1994.
Purpose: The purpose is to explain, review, and explore present knowledge and recent trends, developments, and advances in nutrition. This is a worthy objective, but not always met.

Booknews
A textbook integrating into the study of macronutrients such sciences as biochemistry, genetics, and physiology along with the traditional information on chemistry, requirements, and symptoms of deficiency. Berdanier (foods and nutrition, U. of Georgia-Athens) also includes clinical examples to illustrate the importance of particular steps in the metabolic pathways, and considers the nutrition of other animals besides humans. Here she covers only the macronutrients water, energy, proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids, and leaves micronutrients to a sister volume. To the 1994 edition, she has added new material based on scientific developments since then, but has retained all the original material. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
