Research Project: Metabolizable Energy Value of Pulses in the Human Diet

Location: Food Components and Health Laboratory

Project Number: 8040-51530-011-08-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 1, 2018
End Date: Apr 30, 2023

Objective:
To measure the metabolizable energy value of pulses when fed to humans.

Approach:
Controlled diet studies will be conducted in which volunteers will be fed diets with and without pulses and diet samples and excreta will be collected and analyzed by bomb calorimtery to determine the metabolizable energy value of the pulses.
