  • Appearing in each chapter, "Concepts in Action" features integrate Diet Analysis Plus activities to relate chapter concepts to students' lives.
  • Pop-up Tutors (short videos) in MindTap give students extra help on difficult concepts, such as protein synthesis and metabolism.
  • "Food Feature" boxes that appear in most chapters act as bridges between theory and practice; they are practical applications of the chapter concepts that help readers to choose foods according to sound nutrition principles.
  • "Controversy" end-of-chapter essays provide a balanced view of scientific evidence regarding current and emerging topics in nutrition. Each Controversy has been thoroughly updated, and there is new information on vegetarian diet planning, supplements, antioxidant-rich foods, and more.
  • In-chapter resources promote learning and understanding. Marginal notes within each chapter highlight key terms. End-of-chapter "Self-Checks" enable students to evaluate their progress.
