Nutritional Biochemistry

Nutritional Biochemistry

Biochemists have long been intrigued by the chemical composition of animal-derived foods. Nutritional biochemistry is a cornerstone of nutritional sciences, delving into nutrients' effects on mammalian physiology, health, and behavior. This field encompasses chemical attributes of nutrients, their biochemical, metabolic, physiological, and epigenetic roles, and seeks optimal dietary intakes throughout life. Research in nutritional biochemistry employs analytical and traditional biochemical techniques to purify nutrients, unveil metabolic pathways, and elucidate dietary components' impact on metabolism and gene expression regulation.
