The leading and most current text available for the capstone level undergraduate nutrition course, Advanced

Nutrition and Human Metabolism, Fourth Edition provides a sophisticated understanding of digestion, absorption and metabolism of fat, protein and carbohydrates. It covers the biochemistry of vitamins, minerals, and energy nutrients. In addition, the text examines the structure and function of water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins and their regulatory role in metabolism, looks at electrolyte and fluid balance, and examines the role of nutrition in the development or exacerbation of chronic disease. This text continues to set the hallmark for this course through the authors' ability to clearly and accurately explain even the most complex metabolic processes and concepts.
