Overview

This practical reference provides the most recent information available on every type of nutrient, including carbohydrates, fats proteins, lipids, water and electrolytes, minerals and trace elements, and fat- and water-soluble vitamins. Entries examine the foods themselves, as well as nutritional contents, chemical and biochemical structures, and metabolic pathways. A visually impressive volume, the text is enhanced with tables, formulae, diagrams, and illustrations. An extensive system of cross-references illustrates the relationships of additives, natural toxins, and food processing to health and disease. The entries present detailed caloric and nutrient information on individual foods, including grains, pulses, nuts seeds, vegetables, meats, fish, eggs, dairy products, oils and fats, herbs, spices, and beverages; place nutrition in a broader health context by examining the composition and structure of the body, absorption and metabolism of foods and nutrition-related disorders such as rickets, osteoporosis, scurvy, gout, diabetes, malnutrition, and obesity; explore both naturally occurring and human made food toxins, as well as food additives; and feature easy-to-follow metabolic maps and diagrams that follow nutrients from ingestion to incorporation and elimination, in addition to accessible tables of chemical, biochemical, and nutritional information that allow immediate comparisons of related items. The Nutrition and Health Dictionary is an invaluable reference for nutritionists, nurses, food scientists, allied health professionals, and other health care providers. It is also an outstanding source for students and researchers in nutrition and food science.

Incl. tables & metabolic maps/additives, natural toxins & food processings/written in scientific language & style.
