Abstract

The sixth summary edition of McCance and Widdowson's The Composition of Foods Tables, compiled by the Food Standards Agency and the Institute of Food Research was recently published. The initial endeavours of Professor McCance and Dr Widdowson in the 1930's have been extensively developed, and this work composes a valuable reference tool for all those with an interest in UK food and nutrient consumption. This review considers the changes observed in the latest edition of these tables.
