Winner of the Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology Bruce Chandler Book Prize in 2014 for this ultimate guide to health through food and nutrition, Catherine Saxelby, Australia's most respected nutritionist, now brings you an updated edition of the guide.

Despite the huge gains in nutritional knowledge, healthy eating has not become easier. In our time-poor society, fewer people regularly cook and eat at home, and many rely on take-away and fastfoods. In effect, we are suffering from malnutrition in the midst of plenty, along with many modern lifestyle diseases: obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. A leading nutritionist for over 25 years, Catherine has educated a generation of Australians about healthy eating and getting the most from their diet. In this updated edition of the Complete Food and Nutrition Companion, Catherine presents an A-Z guide of everything you need to know to get healthy, live longer and live better.

With more than 500 entries covering whole foods, processed foods, additives, nutrients, supplements and more, this is the ultimate family reference for good health and nutrition.
