3 KP6RM. B. Zimmermann, C. Wolfrum
KurzbeschreibungThis course introduces basic concepts of micro- and macronutrient nutrition. Micronutrients studied include fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Macronutrients include proteins, fat and carbohydrates. Special attention is given to nutrient digestion, bioavailability, metabolism and excretion with some focus on energy metabolism.
LernzielTo introduce the students to the both macro- and micronutrients in relation to food and metabolism.
InhaltThe course is devided into two parts. The lectutres on micronutrients are given by Prof. Zimmermann and the lectures on macronutrients are given by Prof. Wolfrum. Prof. Zimmermann discusses the micronutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins, water-soluble vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Prof. Wolfrum introduces basic nutritional aspects of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and energy metabolism. The nutrients are described in relation to digestion, absorption and metabolism. Special aspects of homeostasis and homeorhesis are emphasized.

752-6101-00LDietary Etiologies of Chronic Disease3 KP2VM. B. Zimmermann
KurzbeschreibungTo have the student gain understanding of the links between the diet and the etiology and progression of chronic diseases, including diabetes, gastrointestinal diseases, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and food allergies.
LernzielTo examine and understand the protective effect of foods and food ingredients in the maintenance of health and the prevention of chronic disease, as well as the progression of complications of the chronic diseases.
InhaltThe course evaluates food and food ingredients in relation to primary and secondary prevention of chronic diseases including diabetes, gastrointestinal diseases, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, arthritis and food allergies.
SkriptThere is no script. Powerpoint presentations will be made available on-line to students.
LiteraturTo be provided by the individual lecturers, at their discretion.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesNo compulsory prerequisites, but prior completion of Human Nutrition I + II (Humanernährung I+II) is strongly advised.
752-6403-00LNutrition and Performance2 KP2VS. Mettler, M. B. Zimmermann
KurzbeschreibungThe course introduces basic concepts of the interaction between nutrition and exercise and cognitive performance.
LernzielTo understand the potential effects of nutrition on exercise performance, with a focus on concepts and principles of nutrition before, during and after exercise.
InhaltThe course will cover elementary aspects of sports nutrition physiology, including carbohydrate, glycogen, fat, protein and energy metabolism. A main focus will be to understand nutritional aspects before exercise to be prepared for intensive exercise bouts, how exercise performance can be supported by nutrition during exercise and how recovery can be assisted by nutrition after exercise.
Although this is a scientific course, it is a goal of the course to translate basic sports nutrition science into practical sports nutrition examples.
SkriptLecture slides and required handouts will be available on the ETH website.
LiteraturInformation on further reading will be announced during the lecture. There will be some mandatory as well as voluntary readings.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesGeneral knowledge about nutrition, human biology, physiology and biochemistry is a prerequisite for this course. The course builds on basic nutrition and biochemistry knowledge to address exercise and performance related aspects of nutrition.

The course is designed for 3rd year Bachelor students, Master students and postgraduate students (MAS/CAS).

Language: English

It is strongly recommended to attend the lectures. The lecture (including the handouts) is not designed for distance education.

3 KP3UM. B. Zimmermann, V. Galetti
KurzbeschreibungIn this practical course different meals are prepared and then analysed in the laboratory. The analyses comprise energy, macronutrients, specific micronutrients as well as polyphenols and phytic acid. Based on these results, the nutritional value of each meal is critically evaluated and discussed.
LernzielLearning analytical methods to determine macro- and micronutrient content in foods. Critical evaluation of analytical results, critical comparison with values from food composition tables, and interpretation in relation to nutritional value of meals.
InhaltThe practical course nutrient analysis in foods includes the meal preparation (2 hours in December 2016, date to be defined) and chemical analysis of five meals from 5 different types of diets (students will work in groups; one meal per group). The content of macronutrients, specific micronutrients and secondary plant components are analysed using common analytical methods. The analytical results are compared with calculated data from food composition databases by using the nutrition software EbisPro and critically evaluated. The nutritional values of the meals in relation to specific chronic diseases and iron bioavailability are discussed. The practical course is accompanied by a lecture on the basic principles of analytical chemistry.
SkriptA script and lecture slides are handed out before course start.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesStudents will work in groups.
Performance is assessed by a short test on course content, oral presentation or results and a short report.
Attendance in compulsory for the lecture, the laboratory work, and the oral presentation.
