Nutrition components mainly include sugar, lipids, proteins, vitamins, inorganic salt, fiber and water. They enter human body together with oxygen and are transformed into substances composing the human body and energy that sustains life activity.
Water influences the state, sensory property and spoilage of food. Test of water in food can help to determine food quality and reveal adulteration. Protein content and decomposition product can directly affect the smell, color and taste of food. Protein content measurement is an important indicator of the food nutritive value. Food fat is composed of glycerol and fatty acid. Fatty acid can be subdivided into saturated fatty acid, monounsaturated fatty acid and polyunsaturated fatty acid. Fat can constitute vital physiological substances, sustain body temperature, cushion outside pressure and provide essential fatty acid. Excessive fat absorption can induce various diseases, so food fat content measurement can be guidance for healthy diet.
