"What you have done is an overwhelming job-there is nothing that even approaches this in the foods and nutrition field. It will become a classic."

"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.
