Nutrition is one of the most important determinants of individual and public health. An increasingly informed public expects its health and food professionals to be able to offer clear, evidence-based advice on diet and associated health implications, but how can established nutrition principles be extracted from the extensive body of often misleading information available in the public domain?
For those embarking on courses in nutrition or related subjects, Essentials of Human Nutrition offers a broad, quality survey of the field. Chapters written by international experts chart the involvement and impact of nutrition across different age groups and from the genetic to the community level. It draws together the wide spectrum of disciplines, from biochemistry to counselling, necessary to promote the practical application of nutritional science at the human level, providing everything a student needs to appreciate the increasingly recognized importance of nutrition to health and disease.
- Disentangles scientifically established nutrition principles from the morass of misinformation available in the public domain
- Data sets and extensive referencing ensure the content is firmly anchored in nutrition science
- Practical processes with which students need to be familiar, such as dietary assessment and food analysis, are covered

Review from previous edition: "This is an admirable book for clinical and other scientists entering the field...it can be thoroughly recommended"
--European Journal of Clinical Nutrition
"Overall, this is a comprehensive but eminently readable book, which will provide an ideal companion for students of nutritional science and its affiliated healthcare disciplines. Its competitive price represents excellent value for money, further reason why I shall be recommending it highly
to both my postgraduate and particularly my undergraduate students of nutrition and dietetics."
--British Journal of Nutrition, 2008
