Our research group conducts human metabolic, in vitro, and subjective health effects of food intake studies. Interventions include fiber, carbohydrate, protein and whole food studies.  A particular interest of our group is the gastrointestinal effects of food intake, including changes in microflora, short chain fatty acids, and other fecal measures.
