The Nutrition Bible: The Comprehensive No Nonsense Guide to Foods Nutrients Additives, ...

Jean E. Anderson, Author, Barbara Deskins, With William Morrow & Company $30 (470p) ISBN 978-0-688-11619-4
Food writer Anderson (The Food of Portugal) and University of Pittsburgh nutritionist Deskins team up to produce an alphabetical encyclopedia that tells, with professionalism and panache, a little bit about a lot of things, including food-related disorders, cooking techniques, diets, brand names and food-labeling terminology. The briefest entries (e.g., Calorie, Ileitis, Xanthan Gum) offer clear, jargon-free definitions. Others may also contain a bit of folklore or colorful history, perhaps a cooking tip, sometimes a warning. Major topics such as Bacteria, Fast Food, Fat, Heart Health and Sugars get the most complete coverage and contain cross references to other entries. Scattered throughout are dozens of low-fat, low-cholesterol, fairly simple recipes (all with nutritional analyses) such as that for Almost Fat-Free Chocolate-Beet Bundt Cake, included with the Beets entry. This comprehensive work has something to offer both the serious researcher and the casual browser. (Nov.)
