Food for Health Research Theme

The Food for Health research theme focuses on supporting improved human health through agri-food products, and increasing competitiveness of Ontario's agriculture and food sectors.

Research into food related subjects plays an important role in improving the health of Ontarians', reducing health care costs associated with diet, and improving market opportunities for Ontario growers, manufacturers and related businesses.

Research in this area is diverse, but always connects agriculture and human health. Projects supported range from assessing bioactives in agricultural and agri-food products to developing new products and researching consumer acceptance of them.
