From the reviews of the first edition
"The two-volume set of the Foods and Nutrition Encyclopedia is an amazingly comprehensive resource on the subjects of food, nutrition, and health."
"Mrs. and Dr. Ensminger have dedicated their lives to lessening world hunger and malnutrition. They have developed unique education and self-help programs that have resulted in a measurable improvement in world food and nutrition. Their achievements include twenty-one books, now in several languages and used all over the world, on which they waive all royalties on foreign editions in order to help the people. "
American Medical Association
"[The authors] have collaborated to produce a timely work that analyzes in a timeless manner many contemporary and complex topics."
"This encyclopedia fills a serious gap, making sound, accessible and readable nutritional information available to all who are interested. Well organized and authoritative, this is an exceptional work."
David Dowis, M.D.
"I find Foods & Nutrition Encyclopedia just the book I need to provide accurate and quick information. I not only plan to recommend this book as a must for my graduate students, but as an excellent reference for nutritionists in other countries where I work. This is the type of reference health workers have needed for a long time."
