Nutritional Biochemistry and Physiological


Biochemists have long been fascinated by the chemical composition of animal food. Nutritional biochemistry is one of the academic foundations of nutritional sciences, a discipline that studies the function and influence of nutrients and other food components on mammalian physiology, health, and behaviour. Nutritional biochemistry is the core knowledge, concepts, and methodology relating to the chemical properties of nutrients and other dietary elements, as well as their biochemical, metabolic, physiological, and epigenetic roles. A major focus of nutritional biochemistry research is the scientific determination of optimal dietary intakes for each nutrient and food component throughout the life cycle. Nutritional biochemistry, for example, is founded on analytical methodologies that enable the purification of individual nutrients and the determination of their structures, as well as traditional biochemical strategies that identify metabolic pathways and demonstrate the role of dietary components in metabolism and gene expression regulation.
