Review of 6th edition, by J. D. Kirschmann and Nutrition Search, Inc. New York, NY: McGraw Hill Books; 2007. 

Nutrition Almanac, now in its 6th edition, is an update of the work of John D. Kirschmann and Nutrition Search, Inc, which is a consulting company founded by Kirschmann. Often referred to as the "Bible of Nutrition" by health food stores, Nutrition Almanac was a quest originally embarked upon by the author for personal knowledge regarding his own health, and which became a compendium of literature organized by Mr Kirschmann and various medical and healthcare professionals that is now marketed as a resource for the relationship between food and health.

 

The book is organized into 6 sections:

1.    Nutrition and Health;

2.    Nutrients;

3.    Foods, Beverages and Supplementary Foods;

4.    Ailments and Other Stressful Conditions;

5.    Food Lists

6.    Tables of Food Measurements and Composition.

The first section includes information on digestion, absorption, and metabolism. The second section provides information on macronutrients, micronutrients, and special functions of nutrients. This section is comprehensive, providing good information on macronutrient topics such as refined versus whole grains, the glycemic index, essential amino acids, and recommendations regarding cholesterol and fat-soluble vitamins. Discussion of micronutrients includes the absorption, storage, dosage, toxicity deficiency, and beneficial effects of vitamins and minerals along with information on water. In addition, the coverage in this section of antioxidants and phytonutrients includes a good description of free radicals and antioxidants endogenous to the body.

The third section provides nutrient content and nutritional benefit information for various foods, sorted by food group. This section also provides resourceful information on how to store food properly, vitamins available in foods, and food temperatures to help avoid food-borne illness. This section also includes a very informative description of the different types of fat. The fourth section includes information on a multitude of ailments and conditions, providing a description of each and recommendations for treatment, including suggestions of various herbs and homeopathic remedies that may be prescribed.

The last 2 sections of the text provide an excellent reference resource of various food lists and food measurements for the layperson and professional alike, and include tables on Foods with pharmacological activity, acid and alkaline forming foods, dietary reference intakes, weights and measurements and food composition by food group.
