Benefits:

Each opening scenario focuses students on what they are going to learn. Closing questions then allow students to assess their knowledge and consider whether their personal choices are meeting the dietary goals introduced in the chapter.

New "Highlights" include "A World Tour of Pyramids, Pagodas, and Plates" (Ch. 2); "High-Fat Foods: Friend or Foe?" (Ch. 5); and "Phytochemicals and Functional Foods" (Ch. 13).

  • NEW! Chapter 7, "Metabolism: Transformations and Interactions," has been reviewed, revised, and re-energized. Details were added to enhance understanding, but care was taken to maintain the same chemistry-friendly approach, using a combination of familiar phrases and attractive art.
  • NEW! Diet Analysis Plus, available Online or on a Windows CD-ROM, can be packaged with this text for a substantial discount.
