Research Project: Nutrition, Food Composition

Location: Nutrient Data Laboratory

Project Number: 8040-52000-064-25-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 22, 2015
End Date: Aug 30, 2017

Objective:
Objective 1. Develop and expand the USDA-ARS food composition databases to represent the dynamics of the U.S. food supply, including increased use of commercially packaged foods, restaurant foods, school foods, and ethnic foods. (NP107; C2, PS 2A; C3, PS 3A). Sub-Objective 1.D. Monitor sodium and related nutrients in commercially processed and restaurant foods in the U.S. food supply.

Approach:
Improved food composition data and research focused in ongoing ARS programs will be established through small and large studies on the changing composition of the US food supply. This include monitoring and analysis of key contributors of sodium in the US population, This agreement supports food specialist research with select foods: data will be reviewed, analyzed, compiled and disseminated in SR.
