Abstract

This encyclopedia provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of human nutrition, including clinical applications. Most of the chapters represent brand new expositions of the field, yet the Encyclopedia also includes relevant sections from the Encyclopaedia of Food Science, Food Technology, and Nutrition, which have been revised, updated, and rewritten, plus that reference work's award-winning index system. Virtually everyone will find the Encyclopedia of Human Nutrition easy to use--from the experienced researcher requiring a specific piece of information to the general reader who needs an overview of a new and unfamiliar topic. The work is highly structured and cross-referenced, and leads the reader to the required information as quickly and as intuitively as possible. Of the more than 270 articles, each offers "links" to related articles and also lists "Further Reading Topics," directing the reader to important texts in that area. The Encyclopedia takes a truly international approach where relevant. It details various national conventions and standards and explains nutritional policy differences between the developed and developing world. Nutritionists, clinical nutritionists, dietitians, and allied health workers are sure to benefit and make great use of this resource.
