Thoughts from the editors:

"Present Knowledge in Nutrition has been a go-to resource for me throughout my career. When a topic has come up that is outside my area of expertise, I have known that I could pull [the book] from my shelf and find the latest information. I have used it for graduate courses as well as for a reference text." - Diane Birt, PhD

"As editors, we designed Present Knowledge in Nutrition to provide a concise format that highlights what is now known about a topic, while providing significant key references to allow the reader to find further information on specific questions on a topic when needed. For nutritionists and dietitians like me, who have been in academic, health and research fields in a variety of roles, each chapter provides the user with basic information as well as in-depth discussions of the important topics in the field of nutrition and health from a global perspective." - Allison Yates, PhD

"The process of compiling and editing [this book] has been a terrific learning experience for me. It has given me the chance to read the latest information in the field of nutrition and interact with the leading nutrition scientists, including my excellent co-editors!" - Bernadette Marriott, PhD
