NUT232 Nutritional Biochemistry

Nutritional biochemistry introduces you to the structural and functional characteristics of macronutrients (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins) and micronutrients (vitamins) in food consumed by humans. You will learn about the biochemical mechanisms associated with the digestion and assimilation of macronutrients, and are introduced to analytical techniques in food biochemistry. In the context of human nutrition assessment, you will also explore the importance of biochemical testing in the diagnosis and management of common metabolic disorders such as diabetes mellitus and dyslipidaemias.
