Smart Foods Centre

 

Description

The vision of the Smart Foods Centre is to provide leadership and excellence in food and nutrition research and teaching in Australia. Part of the University of Wollongong, this unit is involved in research examining the relationship between dietary intake and health/disease with a particular emphasis on the metabolic syndrome (obesity, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes).

Studies focus on functional foods, the feasibility and acceptability of dietary interventions and the role of nutrition professionals in influencing dietary change. Diet history, food frequency and dietary recall techniques are used and the results interpreted by experts to underpin many of the human physiology and diet intervention studies. The research program examines the feasibility of manipulating macronutrients in the overall diet for metabolic effects.
