Research

Keeping the world’s food abundant, safe and nutritious.

Leading in Research and Innovation

In our research programs, we ask the tough questions and don’t shy away from seeking the answers.

  • How can we create a food supply that is abundant, safe, affordable and nutritious?
  • What new technologies can we apply to advance food processing?
  • What is the relationship between eating behaviors, food consumption and weight status?

We work on a broad scale – from partnering with agencies to develop appropriate regulations, collaborating with companies to improve food products, and helping children eat healthier foods.

Our ndergraduate and graduate students team with faculty to drive our research, promote the development processes, nutritional attributes, and overall safety of food products globally.
