Nutrient Metabolism by Martin Kohlmeier

Book Description

"Nutrient Metabolism" defines the molecular fate of nutrients and other dietary compounds in humans, as well as outlining the molecular basis of processes supporting nutrition, such as chemical sensing and appetite control. It focuses on the presentation of nutritional biochemistry; and the reader is given a clear and specific perspective on the events that control utilization of dietary compounds. Slightly over 100 self-contained chapters cover all essential and important nutrients as well as many other dietary compounds with relevance for human health. An essential read for healthcare professionals and researchers in all areas of health and nutrition who want to access the wealth of nutrition knowledge available today in one single source. It is highly illustrated with relevant chemical structures and metabolic pathways. Foreword is by Steven Zeisel, Editor-in-chief of the Journal of "Nutritional Biochemistry". It is the first comprehensive work on the subject.
