Food & Nutrition Group
The Food & Nutrition Group utilises various disciplines to understand digestion, absorption, and fermentation of different foods as they pass through the gut and the downstream effects of foods and their metabolites on human health throughout the body. This covers research into weight management and energy usage, gut health, chronic inflammatory diseases and macro- and micro-nutrient interactions.
The Group is located at three sites – Ruakura, Palmerston North and Lincoln.
Science Group Leader: Dr Juliet Ansell
