Didactics

Lectures

Attendance

To have the basic knowledge about biomolecules of nutritional interest and plant biology

Course books

F. Basso - Piante alimentari cereali e proteaginose - Pitagora editrice Bologna

N. C. Battistini, P. Pedrazzi, M. Prampolini - Curare con il cibo, gli alimenti funzionali nella dietetica e nella dietoterapia - Carocci Faber Roma

C. Borghi, A. Cicero - Nutraceutici e alimenti funzionali in medicina preventiva - Bononia University Press, Bologna.

Assessment

Oral examination. To verify the level of preparation of the student, 3 questions will be asked regarding the topics of the course. If the students enrolled on the exam exceed ten units, the exam will be written with three open questions. The evaluation in both cases is expressed in thirtieth and the evaluation will take into account the knowledge of the topics, their exposure, the correct use of the appropriate terminology, the ability to reason and the ability to establish connections between the different topics where possible.
