The Nutrition Research Program embraces science and innovation as the foundation to discover and validate new knowledge about optimal health to inspire consumers around the world to eat and live better. Our highly skilled nutrition and food science experts (both Ph.D. and M.S. levels) take a multidisciplinary approach to research projects that, in turn, drive the development of nutritious and delicious products. This cross-functional approach spans both internal and external areas of research, including consumer science, product development, packaging, university researchers and research-based organizations.
Scientific discoveries in nutrition can then be passed on to our consumers through innovative new products, services and communications. We continually strive to focus on those areas that are relevant and important to human health.
