About this book
Fruit and Nuts lists over 350 foods and extends both the foods and nutrients covered in The Composition of Foods 5th Edition. Data are included covering the wider variety of fruit and fruit-based foods now eaten. In particular information is now available for fruit canned in both syrup and juice, and more 'exotic' varieties such as kiwi fruit and pecan nuts, as well as more varieties of popular foods such as apples and pears. Supplementary tables are included for carotenoid fractions, vitamin E fractions, phytic acid and organic acids, as well as a listing of taxonomic and alternative food names.
