Helping students navigate nutrition’s tough topics for a deeper understanding
The Science of Nutrition offers the best combination of text and media to help students master the toughest nutrition concepts in the course, while providing the richest support to save instructors’ time. This best selling, thoroughly current, research-based nutrition text is uniquely organized around the highly regarded functional approach, which organizes vitamins and minerals based on their functions within the body and is easily seen in the organization of the micronutrient (vitamin and mineral) chapters.
The Fourth Edition enhances the student learning story with greater incorporation of learning outcomes throughout the text; an increased visual impact with the inclusion of new Focus Figures, including Meal Focus Figures; and a strong media story with new assets in MasteringNutrition, including revised nutrition animations. Important hot topics and new research such as the latest dietary guidelines and Nutrition Facts panel, a revised global hunger chapter (to incorporate more coverage of domestic issues, including sustainability and environmental impacts, food equity, politics, etc.), and updated science and source information make this one of the most current texts on the market today.
