HEALTHIER LIVES THROUGH SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY IN FOOD, NUTRITION AND DIET

Foods for Health


Our diet is one of the few modifiable factors affecting our risk for several chronic diseases. Yet as recently as 2017, it was estimated that nearly 25% of deaths world-wide were directly related to sub-optimal diets. We are also beginning to uncover how foods can differentially affect the health and nutrient status of individuals, creating a need for personalized nutrition recommendations.  New collaborations and innovative approaches are needed to address these complex issues. This is where Foods for Health (FFH) comes in.
