Understanding bioactive dietary chemicals

In *All by AgIsAmerica

The foods and drinks we consume contain natural chemicals (vitamins, minerals, fat, sugar, protein, flavonoids, toxicants, hormones, and more) that can positively or negatively impact human health.

Since 1971, a multistate project has brought together researchers at 22 land-grant universities to conduct cutting-edge research on the effects of dietary bioactive chemicals on human health, chronic diseases, and food safety.

To better understand bioactive dietary chemicals, researchers are investigating exposure levels, doses, factors influencing absorption and metabolism,
synergistic effects with other compounds, and transgenerational effects.
