Current Research Priorities
1. Potatoes in Cardiometabolic Health
Impact of potato and/or potato product consumption in subjects with Metabolic Syndrome and/or Type II diabetes
Short and longer-term impacts of low- to moderate-glycemic load meals/diets (that include potatoes and/or potato products) on indices of health and disease
Impact of potato fiber/resistant starch on the gut microbiome and markers of cardiometabolic health/disease
2. Potatoes in Healthy Dietary Patterns
Health profile of individuals/population groups for whom potatoes and/or potato products are a staple food
Effects of plant-based diets, including potatoes and/or potato products (in all forms), on body weight and related health indices in healthy subjects
Potato protein quality compared with protein quality of other plant-based foods
3. Potatoes in Healthy Lifestyles/Life Stages
Impact of potatoes and/or potato products on muscle repair/muscle accretion and/or overall energy levels in conjunction with physical activity/athletic performance
Potatoes compared to manufactured “sports food” products or alternative carbohydrate food sources on exercise performance and recovery
Impact of potatoes and/or potato products on overall nutrient intake in school aged children
