The Science of Nutrition, Canadian edition, offers a rigorous yet engaging and accessible, evidence-based treatment of nutrition that capitalizes on students’ natural interest by demonstrating how nutrition relates to their own health. Instead of relying on rote memorization, this text takes a functional approach that presents micronutrients in the context of their function, rather than by their classification. This approach helps learners organize the information and appreciate the science of nutrients, as well as understand the role of nutrients in the body and in overall health.
This first edition integrates content appropriate for students studying nutrition in Canada. The textbook and its supplements showcase recently published material from Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide, Canadian food regulations, cutting-edge research, nutrition issues unique to Canadian populations, Canadian data and references, and much more.
A wealth of effective online resources are available through the new MasteringNutrition™ online assessment and tutorial system, including access to MyDietAnalysis - an innovative and easy-to-use program that allows students to track their diet and activity, and to generate and submit reports electronically.
