Nutrition Studies

Cornell nutritionists used studies such as this one to improve the dietary conditions of people in developing nations. Another African study, also performed by Cornell nutrition expert Hazel Hauck, discovered that by changing the type of flour they used to peanut flour, which is cheap and readily accessible, the women could dramatically increase the protein content of their meals. Methods such as this, which reached out to the older generation and did not conflict with traditional and cultural norms, had a lasting impact.
