Feeding Studies

The Bionutrition Unit is especially skilled at the long-term provision of research meals to participants, also known as Feeding Studies.

Research meals are packed and sent with participants for home consumption for any length of time, from days to months.  Diets can be designed for weight maintenance or for weight gain or loss, with regular monitoring and adjustments by bionutritionists to ensure study goals are met.  An ad-lib feeding study, where food in excess of the participant’s weight maintenance needs is provided, can measure the affect of a diet on food consumption.
