Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Foreword by David R. Jacobs, Jr., PhD, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
"This book is unique in that it constitutes a comprehensive review of a nutritional subfield, namely the nutrition of beverages. . .A strength of this book is that most sections contain several chapters that provide complementary views on each topic. "

"We all drink beverages every day, yet, surprisingly, there is no single book that focuses, in an authoritative, scholarly manner, on this subject. The book will be of interest to food scientists, nutritionists, and public health specialists; it will be essential reading and a standard reference for individuals in the food and beverage industry. In addition, the book will be an invaluable aid for those involved in new product development. Accordingly, Beverages in Nutrition and Health will be a required purchase for academic libraries that support food science programs and public health graduate studies, as well for industry-specific special libraries." -E-STREAMS

"Beverages in Nutrition and Health is an informative and interesting book that brings together a wealth of knowledge on this long overlooked area of nutrition. The book will be a most useful addition to the collection of nutritionists and other health professionals." - Trends in Food Science & Technology

"...a comprehensive treatise exploring the importance of beverages in the contemporary diet." - Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics
