  • Overview

    Nutrition Science investigates the biochemistry and physiology of macro and micronutrients and their manipulation in the prevention and management of nutrition problems in individuals, groups and populations. It integrates nutrition knowledge with the science of biochemistry and physiology, and provides the foundation on which further studies of nutrition and dietetics can be built.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Identify, describe and interpret information on the biochemistry, physiology and reference values for macronutrients and micronutrients.
    2. Collect and analyse dietary intake data of individuals
    3. Evaluate and interpret evidence from individuals and the evidence-base to design a nutritional intervention.
