I bought this book at the local bookstore after looking at other books in the same area. I have only read a few articles - however, I USE THE FOOD COMPOSITION TABLES CONSTANTLY! This is Section IX - Table of Food Composition, starting on page 389. The authors give 35 elements in each food (after measure and weight) - starting with calories, protein, numerous vitamins and minerals, and the 8 essential amino acids. If you're trying to understand which foods contain the most of a certain element, this is great! This (or something like it) is a must-have for dealing with various diets! I use this all the time to look up vegetables, fruits, beans, meats, etc.
