Food Composition Data: A User's Perspective
Edited by William M. Rand, Carol T. Windham, Bonita W. Wyse, and Vernon R. Young

Knowledge of what is in the foods that are eaten around the world is of critical importance and at the same time extremely inadequate. Data on food composition underpin research and policy in a number of important areas of public health, dietetics, nutrition, and epidemiology; they are critical for key decisions of bilateral and international assistance agencies and play a major role in all phases of the food production and manufacturing industry, both locally and on a global scale. These needs stand in stark contrast to the availability and adequacy of food composition data. In this volume prominent workers in the field present their views and experiences concerning the importance of food composition data and its current problems and what must be done to improve the situation. It provides an essential introduction and survey of the field for anyone interested in or expecting to be involved with the gathering, compilation, or use of food composition data. It will also be a useful reference for university courses on food and nutrition.
