Nutrition: Science and Applications, 4th Edition helps students develop the scientific understanding to support their personal and professional decisions.

The Wiley Advantage

  • Develop Scientific Understanding. Nutrition: Science and Applications, 4th Edition equips students with the resources they need to understand challenging concepts.
  • Metabolism. This concept is presented via an integrated approach, making it more accessible to students. We integrate metabolism because we believe that it is more effective to cover metabolism when it appears germane to the topic. Metabolism is introduced in Chapter 3: Digestion, Absorption, and Metabolism. It is then carried out through the rest of the book. By incorporating both metabolism, and health and disease information throughout the text, students can see that a nutrient's function in metabolism is related to its role in health and disease.
  • Metabolism Icons. These icons are integrated throughout the text. They allow for easy identification of where metabolism information has been integrated into each chapter.
