New to This Edition

  • Includes the most up-to-date content available (hot topics and the latest scientific data). A few examples include: phytochemicals, nutrition supplements, current DRI guidelines, ergogenic aids, energy bars, and much more!
  • Beautiful new design and dynamic new art program! The 5th edition represents a major overhaul of the art program and design. The new and revised art is bigger, bolder and brighter, making the text much more visually dynamic!
  • Totally new chapter on alcohol (7) presents an intelligent, balanced look at a topic that is very relevant to college students. Details covered range from the production of alcohol, to metabolism, to problems and benefits associated with alcohol use.
  • Case Scenarios: Each chapter opens with a realistic case study related to major chapter concepts. Later in the chapter is a "case scenario follow-up" that answers the questions posed at the beginning of the chapter.


  • Extensive pedagogical program includes beginning-of-chapter introduction, marginal notes and definitions, Critical Thinking Questions, Concept Checks, "Another Bite", and "Nutrition Insights" within each chapter. A Summary, Study Questions, Readings to Reinforce and Extend Your Knowledge, "Rate Your Plate", and Nutrition Issues can be found at the end of each chapter.
  • Packaged with every new copy of Contemporary Nutrition, 5/e is the dietary analysis software program entitled FoodWise. With FoodWise, students can enter their food intake to generate easy-to-read diet analysis reports and graphs, see how calories are expended during activities, and calculate weight goals with the Weight Manager.
  • As a consumer-oriented introductory nutrition text, Contemporary Nutrition examines major nutrition concepts--the body's use of nutrients, diet planning throughout the life cycle, and food choices to meet nutrition goals. Emphasizing individuality, the text helps students to apply what they have learned to their own lives.
