In this volume a well known authority on the subject presents an exhaustive account of what happens to the protein foodstuffs from the time they are ingested to the absorption of their end products into the blood stream. The book is divided into four main parts: 1. Protein foodstuffs and their digestion. 2. The nature of the absorbed products. 3. The sequence of events in digestion and absorption. 4. The digestive enzymes: their respective rôles, and the conditions influencing their activity. As in his previous works on other aspects of protein metabolism, the author presents his material in a precise and systematic manner. The subject matter is divided into short sections and paragraphs, each of which bears a subheading indicating its content. The text is liberally illustrated by tabular data, and the extensive bibliography is international in character. Its encyclopedic detail renders this volume more suitable as a reference work
