Summary

NUTRITIONAL SCIENCES: FROM FUNDAMENTALS TO FOOD presents the basics of nutrition with unique coverage of the fundamental science underlying it, including its foundation in anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry. It is organized and written in a clear narrative style, with a linear format that builds concepts, engages students, and promotes a more thorough understanding. It is comprehensive in its coverage, including the most current information, and also unique in its brevity, making it easier to cover the material in a semester or quarter's time. From its emphasis on the fundamental science to the impressive integrated visual and media, relevant and supportive pedagogical features, and extensive supplemental resources (i.e. Diet Analysis+ 8.0, PowerPointŪ, and JoinIn on TurningPointŪ), this text is a fresh presentation of nutrition concepts that instructors and students will praise.
