Dictionary of Food Science and Nutrition
This dictionary provides a basic vocabulary of terms used in food science
and nutrition. It is ideal for all students of food technology and related
subjects, as well as those working for the first time in jobs such as catering,
dietetics and public or environmental health.
Each headword is explained in clear, straightforward English. There are also
supplements including nutrient RDAs and sources, a body mass index
calculator, conversion tables for cooking and a guide to food hygiene
procedure, as well as a list of key contacts in the fields of nutrition, health
and food production.
Thanks are due to Emma Parker, Assoc. Nutr., for her valuable help and
advice during the production of this book.
