Functional Foods for Healthy Aging Toolkit

A research team led by Research Scientist Alison Duncan, PhD, RD (Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, University of Guelph) has developed a ‘Functional Foods for Healthy Aging’ toolkit. The toolkit is a collection of resources, including background information on functional foods, and guidance regarding regulations and packaging, that will assist Registered Dietitians and other health professionals in communicating with older adults about functional foods.

Included in the toolkit is a link to an anonymous evaluation survey so the research team can gather feedback about how the resource is being used and applied in practice.

Funding for the toolkit was provided by the Canadian Foundation for Dietetic Research’s first Nutrition Research in Focus program, and the Agri-Food and Rural Link program, the knowledge mobilization arm of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in partnership with the University of Guelph.
