Review:

The 5th edition of the Nutrition Almanac brings current a nutrition reference tool first published in 1973, when nutrition resources on this topic were nearly non-existent. Nutrition Almanac quickly became the go-to source for authoritative data on macro- and micronutrients. This most recent edition takes the Almanac in a different direction, perhaps reflecting stronger competition in the nutrition sourcebook arena. Readers will find the data section, "Diet and Food Composition," still provides the standard information--calories, protein, carbohydrate, and fiber, plus the micronutrient breakdowns per item. Entries are grouped by type of food group (e.g., dairy and eggs, fats and oils, fruits and juices, grains). Other major sections cover nutrients and what each contributes to a healthy body; health conditions and the recommended nutritional responses for addressing each; and an overview of food groups. New to this edition is a separate section focusing on alternative medicine and therapies (for example, aromatherapy, energy balancing, meditation, and hypotherapy). In addition, alternative-therapy options are interwoven throughout the entries for health conditions... American Reference Books Annual 20040317
