Research Project: Macronutrient Absorption from Almonds: the Measured Energy Value of Almonds in the Human Diet

Location: Food Components and Health Laboratory

Project Number: 1235-51530-010-01
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2014

Objective:
To measure the macronutrient digestibility and epigenetic effects of consumption of almonds as part of a controlled diet in humans.

Approach:
ARS will conduct a randomized clinical trial to investigate the effect of almonds, a high-fat, high-fiber food on nutrient absorption and will collect samples to evaluate epigenetic effects, and the effect of almonds on pathways associated with cancer and cardiovascular disease.
