Individuals living with food insecurity are disproportionately affected by overweight and obesity and associated chronic health problems. There remains a lack of sustainable and scalable interventions targeting widespread barriers to access to healthy foods in this population to increase the nutritional quality of foods purchased for preparation and consumption at home. This randomized controlled proof-of-principle trial was designed to examine the feasibility and initia...
Weight gain occurs because of imbalances in energy balance favouring energy intake. Whilst over 50% of a person's energy requirement goes towards the maintenance of physiological functions, around 40% is used for physical activity. In addition to this, around 10-15% of energy is spent on what is termed as Diet Induced Thermogenesis (DIT). Diet Induced Thermogenesis is the increase in energy expenditure following a meal, and represents the energy utilised for the digestion and m...
the aim of this study is to evaluate whether a Mediterranean diet rich in pasta and other starchy foods with a (Low-GI), as compared with a similar Mediterranean diet containing very little pasta and based on starchy foods with a (Hi-GI) is able to reduce insulin and glucose concentrations during a prolonged test study meal.
The purpose of this study is to test how the brain responds when individuals eat enjoyable foods such as chocolate. Eating certain foods can make one want to keep eating even when feeling full, caused by dopamine in the brain. The researchers believe this dopamine response can be measured by looking at the individual's eye.
Gastric emptying rate, glycemic response, fermentation, and appetitive response are being assessed after consumption of traditional West African carbohydrate-based foods (pearl millet couscous, pearl millet thick porridge) and Western type carbohydrate-based foods (wheat couscous, white rice).
The study investigated the effect of caffeine on physical performance in healthy citizens aged over 70 years following eight hours of abstinence from caffeine containing drinks and foods. The main hypothesis was that 6 mg/kg caffeine would improve cycling endurance at 65% of expected maximal heart rate.
A high number of birch pollen-allergic individuals develop hypersensitivity reactions to certain foods, e.g. apples. This food allergy is due to immunological cross-reactivity. Birch pollen-related foods contain proteins, e.g. Mal d 1 in apple, that are structurally related with the major birch pollen allergen, Bet v 1. Hence IgE antibodies and T lymphocytes specific for Bet v 1 recognize these food proteins which results in activation of the immune system and, consequently, in...
This project aims at proving the efficacy and safety of food based solutions to prevent vitamin D deficiency in high risk populations of Caucasian and South Asian origin living in Denmark.
Certain plant foods are high in furanocoumarins. Test tube and animal studies suggest that furanocoumarins may help prevent cancer. It is difficult to determine in humans if furanocoumarins do prevent cancer because there isn't an objective way to tell who has eaten these compounds. This study will develop a urine test to determine if an individual ate foods that contain furanocoumarins.
Many provinces in Indonesia have some well known traditional foods that are widely consumed, but it remains unknown whether traditional ethnic dietary patterns can confirm healthy diets. High quality diet is associated with reduced risk of metabolic diseases and modulated gut microbiota. Moreover, the relationship between dietary quality and microbiota, a potential mediator of metabolic disease, has not been studied.
The purpose of this study is to assess the extent of and sources of variation in the glycaemic index values of foods measured by different laboratories around the world.
Food is selected primarily on their taste and texture properties. It is essential to get more insight in taste and texture characteristics of the foods in the Dutch and Malaysian diets for a better understanding of food choices. Currently, there is insufficient information on taste and texture properties of foods to relate these properties to the composition of diets and individual food choice in larger (observational) studies. In the current study, the investigators want to a...
Making healthy food choices requires sacrificing immediate pleasures of consuming high calorie foods in order to achieve long-term health goals. Two strategies to encourage such future thinking are 1) focusing on the long-term consequences of consuming unhealthy foods, and 2) focusing on the long-term benefits of avoiding these unhealthy foods. Two novel behavioral weight loss (BWL) interventions will be developed based on these strategies (PREVENT and PROMOTE) and compared to ...
BACKGROUND: The treatment with continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) offers improved glycemic control for patients with type 1 diabetes. However, patients with type 1 diabetes usually intake foods with sugar, even without hypoglycemic episodes, and the use of advanced carbohydrate counting method may increase the calories and carbohydrate intake. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate and compare the influence of sucrose-free diet or sucrose-added diet on glucose variability in patients...
This study will determine the effects of beneficial compounds of plant foods, such as pomegranate on cardiovascular health. This will be tested by asking healthy males to eat a high fat ground beef patty with pomegranate juice (PJ), pomegranate extract (PomX) or water and then measuring blood vessel dilation (endothelial function) by blood flow We also will measure the amount of Nitric Oxide (NO) in your blood and urine samples and sugar and insulin in blood. Healthy men have b...
This general population based, randomized controled trial aims at answering two major hypotheses: First, systematic early introduction of solid foods decreases the incidence of food allergy and dietary restrictions by the age of one year. Second, stimulation with the symptom-eliciting food rather than avoidance will induce tolerance in babies with non-severe allergic symptoms.
This study is for people whose cancer: - has resisted chemotherapy - are taking a break from chemotherapy - or are looking for an alternative to the toxic effects of chemotherapy The trial is looking to see if a very low carbohydrate diet can inhibit the growth of certain cancers. The two major goals of the RECHARGE study are to determine: - whether a very low carbohydrate diet can help participants reduce the amount of cancer in their b...
This study will measure the bioavailability of allicin, the main active compound of garlic, from garlic supplements and garlic foods (raw, cooked, processed) so that - supplement manufacturers and clinical investigators know how supplements need to be made and consumed to obtain high bioavailability - consumers can know how garlic can be prepared to obtain any established health benefits of garlic.
Dietary biomarkers are compounds in biofluids that directly reflect the intake of specific foods or food groups. Their exploration and use in the field of dietary assessments could provide an objective measure of actual intake complementing classical assessment methods (e.g. food frequency questionnaire, 24h recalls). To date, only a limited number of foods have been covered by validated biomarkers. The study is part of the international project "The Food Biomarker Alliance (F...
Specific Aims: Environmental factors contributing to overconsumption, such as larger food portion sizes, may be contributing to the obesity epidemic. The objective of the proposed study is to examine the independent and combined effects of portion size and quantity of food on intake in normal weight males and females. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of four conditions varying in the portion size and quantity of junk food provided: small quantity of food package...
Isoflavonoids, through their estrogen-like activity, are in part responsible for the cholesterol lowering properties of soy foods. If this is found to be so, then it would be advantageous not only to promote soy consumption, but also to identify and use soy cultivars with high isoflavonoid content in production of soy food products. These foods may have a use in the reduction of serum cholesterol and if they effectively increase the phytoestrogen activity of soy, may have a rol...
This is a study about how the price of foods affects buying choices at the grocery store. The price of foods can have a big impact on what people choose to buy and prices change over time. This study is being done to see how changes in food prices affect what mothers choose for their families.
A contributing factor to the rising prevalence of obesity may be increased portion sizes. However, the effect of portion size has not been studied independent of the effect of quantity of food in the context of a behavioral weight loss program. Providing pre-portioned single servings of food may make it easier to reduce caloric and dietary fat intake improving weight loss. In addition, breakfast skipping is associated with obesity and breakfast consumption is associated with...
Osteoporosis is a major health problem. It was hypothesized that isoflavone-containing products may be a potential alternative to HRT for preventing bone loss during the menopausal transition. We investigated whether one-year consumption of isoflavone-enriched foods affected bone mineral density, bone metabolism and hormonal status in early postmenopausal women in a randomized double-blind, placebo controlled parallel multi-centre trial.
We aim to examine whether a purchasing incentive for healthy foods has the same effect on dietary intake in a community with and a community without a purchasing penalty for unhealthy foods. We will perform a randomized non-inferiority trial in two locations, San Francisco (SF) and Los Angeles (LA) to test whether a voucher for purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables has a similar effect in LA and in SF, where the former does not but the latter does have a tax on sugar-sweetened...
