This topic will develop core knowledge of the biochemical and physiological roles and functions of nutrients in the human body. Nutrients will be grouped and studied according to function, with focus on the general principles and common patterns between them. Primary food sources of the macro and micronutrients will be explored, as well as the biological effects of nutrient excesses and deficiencies.
This topic aims to extend the student's ability to apply knowledge of the biochemical and physiological science of nutrients to nutrition and dietetic practice, and to refine core skills in critical evaluation of nutrition information.
