Research Project: Health Related Metabolic Pathways and Walnut Consumption

Location: Food Components and Health Laboratory

Project Number: 1235-51530-010-06
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Apr 01, 2013
End Date: Mar 31, 2015

Objective:
This project will empirically measure the energy value of walnuts and evaluate the impact of walnut consumption on lipid parameters associated with cardiovascular disease risk factors in humans as part of a mixed diet.

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