NutriSTEP™ is a fast and simple way to assess eating habits and identify nutrition problems early, including growth and overweight issues. It is a parent-administered 17-item questionnaire that covers the nutritional risk constructs for the preschool population: food and nutrient intake, physical growth, developmental and physical capabilities, physical activity, food security and the feeding environment.
Guelph researchers have discovered that some short phosphopeptides have a strong ability to reduce oxidative stress in Caco-2 cells, as well as inhibit TNFalpha-induced cytokine release and insulin resistance.
Guelph researchers have discovered the Snap-On Fluorescent Probes that allow a single DNA sequence containing a chemical "handle" to be modified to attach one of a library of fluorescent labels to the DNA.
Researchers at the University of Guelph have developed a novel microwave system for use in medical therapies, chemical manufacturing, food processing, and food or tissue decontamination. The system delivers non-thermal microwave energy pulses to a target while simultaneously cooling/maintaining a target at a fixed temperature.
