Summary: Nutritional Biochemistry is intended for students of nutrition and related biological sciences, as well as premedical, nursing, and animal science students. This book allows students to receive a hands-on perspective of the field. Each case study either leads to a subsequent discovery or enables an understanding of the physiological mechanisms of action of various nutrition-related processes. The text is "picture oriented" and the commentary directed toward explaining graphs, figures, and tables. This "real-world" approach allows students to come away with a realistically informed view of the basis for much of our understanding of nutritional biochemistry.
