Molecular Basis of Human Nutrition focuses on the metabolic basis of human nutrition, detailing recent knowledge and research in this field. It explains the biochemical functions of the essential nutrients and the physiological consequences of deficient and excessive intakes. These are described within the context of normal human diets and requirements for health.

Molecular Basis of Human Nutrition is the only book to cover this particular subject and will prove very popular with both students and lecturers alike.show more

Review quote

'This title is excellent and should be very attractive to both students and teaching staff.' - John Mathers, School of Biological Sciences, University of Newcastle, UK 'There is a genuine shortage of good introductory texts in nutrition which deal with cellular and metabolic aspects and this book would definitely fill that gap. A much needed book.' - Joe Millward, School of Biological Sciences, University of Surrey, UKshow more
