Research Project: Nutrition Research with Walnuts to Reduce Risk of Disease

Location: Food Components and Health Laboratory

Project Number: 8040-51530-010-10-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 31, 2014
End Date: Mar 30, 2019

The purpose of this agreement is to conduct nutrition studies with walnuts to gather data on energy content and the role of walnuts in reducing risk for disease.

ARS will conduct intervention studies to empirically determine the energy value of walnuts and to determine how walnuts impact risk factors for non-communicable disease. This information will be used by both parties to jointly develop new information on the role of diet and risk for chronic disease. The Cooperator will provide dietetic, food service, and scientific support for these studies.
