About this book

Since the publication of the first edition of this successful and popular book in 1970, the subject of lipid biochemistry has evolved greatly and this fifth up-to-date and comprehensive edition includes much new and exciting information. Lipid Biochemistry, fifth edition has been largely re-written in a user-friendly way, with chapters containing special interest topic boxes, summary points and lists of suggested reading, further enhancing the accessibility and readability of this excellent text. Contents include abbreviations and definitions used in the study of lipids, routine analytical methods, fatty acid structure and metabolism, dietary lipids and lipids as energy stores, lipid transport, lipids in cellular structures and the metabolism of structural lipids. The book provides a most comprehensive treatment of the subject, making it essential reading for all those working with or studying lipids. Upper level students of biochemistry, biology, clinical subjects, nutrition and food science will find the contents of this book invaluable as a study aid, as will postgraduates specializing in the topics covered in the book. Professionals working in research in academia and industry, including personnel involved in food and nutrition research, new product formulation, special diet formulation (including nutraceuticals and functional foods) and other clinical aspects will find a vast wealth of information within the book's pages. Michael Gurr was a Visiting Professor in Human Nutrition at the University of Reading, UK and at Oxford Brookes University, UK. John Harwood is a Professor of Biochemistry at the School of Biosciences, Cardiff University, UK. Keith Frayn is a Professor of Human Metabolism at the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, University of Oxford, UK.

Media reviews

After five editions, Lipid Biochemistry still plays a somewhat pioneering role and a new, up-to-date edition is a timely addition. Cell Biochemistry & Function, Nov 2004 "...provides a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of the subject...this is a helpful addition to all studying or researching in the area of lipids and lipid metabolism." Nutrition Bulletin "The student friendly format includes summary panels (text boxes) highlighting the narrative, which are used for issues that generate debate and controversy. The style is easy-going and readable, with humour lightening the serious messages wherever possible. A very good buy." Food Trade Review 2004 "The student friendly format includes many summary panels (text boxes) highlighting the narrative, which are used especially for issues that generate debate and controversy. The style is easy-going and readable, with humour lightening the serious messages wherever possible. A very good buy." Chemistry World
