Introduction to nutrition and metabolism by David A Bender( Book )

79 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Retaining the wealth of detailed information delivered in the accessible manner of its predecessors, this book continues to provide a clear introduction to the principles of nutrition and metabolism, the interactions between diet and health, and the scientific basis for dietary goals and recommendations. The author uses concise, authoritative language to emphasize and describe the underlying biochemistry that is essential to an understanding of nutrient function and the ability to evaluate and interpret future advances in nutrition science. With clear and simple diagrams, the text explores the physiological need for food and describes the metabolic pathways, their integration and control, and the biochemical basis of their nutritional and physiological importance. It covers digestion and absorption and the metabolic roles of ATP, enzymes, and coenzymes. Describing the functional utilization of protein, fats, and carbohydrates, the book discusses macronutrients in terms of energy yield, energy balance, and reserves. It also covers the endocrinology of metabolic control and the biochemistry of vitamins and minerals. -- Publisher description
A dictionary of food and nutrition by David A Bender( Book )

Amino acid metabolism by David A Bender( Book )

43 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amino Acid Metabolism, 3rd Edition covers all aspects of the biochemistry and nutritional biochemistry of the amino acids. Starting with an overview of nitrogen fixation and the incorporation of inorganic nitrogen into amino acids, the book then details other major nitrogenous compounds in micro-organisms, plants and animals. Contents include a discussion of the catabolism of amino acids and other nitrogenous compounds in animals, and the microbiological reactions involved in release of nitrogen gas back into the atmosphere. Mammalian (mainly human) protein and amino acid requirements are considered in detail, and the methods that are used to determine them. Chapters consider individual amino acids, grouped according to their metabolic origin, and discussing their biosynthesis (in plants and micro-organisms for those that are dietary essentials for human beings), major metabolic roles (mainly in human metabolism) and catabolism (again mainly in human metabolism). There is also discussion of regulatory mechanisms for all these metabolic pathways, and of metabolic and genetic diseases affecting the (human) metabolism of amino acids."--
Oxford dictionary of biochemistry and molecular biology by Richard Cammack( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology provides a comprehensive survey of current biochemistry and molecular biology. The entries are short but informative, providing up-to-date information on a broad range of topics. There are over 17,000 main entries, which give details of biochemical substances and the processes in which they are involved, define methods and concepts in molecular biology, and give definitions of biochemical symbols and abbreviations. Alternative names for biochemical compounds are listed and will refer the reader to the main entry where the internationally recommended biochemical nomenclature is used. Entries also include the structures and activities of chemical compounds of interest to biochemists, with over 800 illustrations of chemical structures. The Dictionary contains over 2000 protein and enzyme entries, which describe the functions they perform and/or the reactions they catalyse and include database codes to facilitate locating their entries in sequence databases. Brief biographical details are provided for relevant Nobel Laureates and for eponyms." "The Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will serve as a reference for biochemists and molecular biologists seeking information outside their own fields, and for those wishing to revisit fundamental principles."--Jacket
Nutritional biochemistry of the vitamins by David A Bender( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The vitamins are a chemically disparate group of compounds whose only common feature is that they are dietary essentials that are required in small amounts for the normal functioning of the body and maintenance of metabolic integrity. Metabolically, they have diverse functions, such as coenzymes, hormones, antioxidants, mediators of cell signaling, and regulators of cell and tissue growth and differentiation. This book explores the known biochemical functions of the vitamins, the extent to which we can explain the effects of deficiency or excess, and the scientific basis for reference intakes for the prevention of deficiency and promotion of optimum health and well-being. It also highlights areas in which our knowledge is lacking and further research is required. This book provides a compact and authoritative reference volume of value to students and specialists alike in the field of nutritional biochemistry, and indeed all who are concerned with vitamin nutrition, deficiency, and metabolism."--Jacket
Nutrition : a very short introduction by David A Bender( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this Very Short Introduction, David Bender explains the basic elements of food, the balance between energy intake and exercise, the problems of over- and under-nutrition, and raises questions on the safety of nutritional supplements. Looking broadly at what constitutes nutrition, Bender provides insight into a topic of wide interest and importance in today's world. With a look at diet in relation to nutrition, this Very Short Introduction provides an overview of the biochemistry of nutrition and the health risks associated with poor nutrition- including obesity and types of food allergies. It provides an essential guide to effectively understand the principles of, and necessary reasons for, a healthy diet
Bender's dictionary of nutrition and food technology by David A Bender( Book )

43 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of food and nutrition covers a wide range of disciplines from agriculture, biology, physics and chemistry, to the technologies of food processing, and the fields of nutrition and clinical medicine. As research on the links between health and the food we eat continues to expand, it is becoming increasingly important for specialists in such areas as food processing and nutrition to be familiar with the often unfamiliar terminology differing disciplines use." "This classic work meets that need. It provides succinct, authoritative definitions of over 5000 terms in nutrition and food technology (an increase of 25% from the previous edition). Definitions range from abalone and abscisic acid to zymogens and zymotachygraph. In addition, there is nutrient composition data for 287 foods."--Jacket
