This is the perfect book for those of you who are thinking of making a career in food technology, physiology or catering. The book simplifies how food is processed in the body and the importance of various enzymes and processes, right from the saliva in the mouth to the passing of food out of the body after all the nutrients are absorbed. What’s interesting is that the writer has segregated facts and recipes into chapters based on their relationship with specific body parts. For example, the chapter on the mouth and taste buds tells the reader more about the different tastes humans have such as umami, sweet, sour, salty and bitter. The book teaches you how to chew right, eat well, keep your immunity high and get rid of basic ailments such as constipation, bloating, acidity and stress by changing the pattern of the food you consume. This award-winning book is a combination of rare recipes and a guide to a healthy gut—the crux of good health in these COVID times.
