Macronutrients and Human Health

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

This Section of Nutrients aims to rapidly publish quality manuscripts related to macronutrients and human health. The field broadly covers topics including epidemiology, dietary interventions, basic science, natural history, genetics, and reviews. Topics covered will include all aspects of carbohydrates (starch, sugars, and fibre), including naturally occurring and manufactured sources; dietary fatty acids (saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated), including omega-3 and omega 6; and proteins from animal and vegetable sources, including individual amino acids. We all eat foods composed of macronutrients, and we are concerned with health both at personal and public health levels both for chronic and for acutely communicable conditions such as COVID-19. Nutrients is at the forefront of disseminating current advances in these areas of research.
