Description

The Vitamins: Chemistry, Physiology, Pathology, Volume II emphasizes the chemical, physiological, and pathological aspects of vitamins. This volume contains seven chapters. Each chapter discusses the vitamin's nomenclature, industrial preparation, biogenesis, occurrence in foods, effects of its deficiency, and metabolism. Other general topics covered in each chapter include the vitamin's specificity of action, toxicity, pharmacology, detoxification, requirements, and therapeutic activity. This volume evaluates vitamins such as choline, vitamin D and K groups, essential fatty acids, inositols, niacin, pantothenic acid. This book will be of value to nutritionists, dieticians, food scientists, technologists, and researchers.
