Item description for Laboratory Manual for Human Nutrition by DASHMANB...
Utilization of the laboratory for nutrition support accompanies the greater demand for quality nutrition, as evidenced by the recent nutrition label law. Because quality nutrition is also good preventive medicine, nutrition assessment may be part of a preliminary examination. This book introduces several areas of nutrition research that the American Institute of Nutrition recently detailed; these include animal nutrition, diet and disease, energy and macronutrient metabolism, growth and development, neuroscience, nutrient-gene interactions, nutrient and food toxicity, public health nutrition policy, and vitamins and minerals. The experiments in this laboratory manual provide the basics of nutritional assessment, including anthropometric, biochemical, clinical, dietary, and environmental parameters. Biological food processing, food composition, theoretical principles, and the effect of pharmaceuticals on appetite, absorption, metabolism and behavior are also studied.
