Research Meals & Diets
Bionutritionists are experienced in the design and implementation of test meals and research diets to provide a specific nutrient composition for a study. The Bionutrition Research Kitchen is specially equipped and the staff is highly trained to prepare and serve meals and to document their consumption. Test meals of specific nutrient composition can be served on a timed schedule. Research meals can be served at any CTRC unit or can be packed and sent home with a participant. Feeding studies lasting for days, weeks, or even months are a specialty of the Bionutrition unit.
