    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

This project aims to investigate the impact of different recommendations to reduce free sugar intakes, on free sugar intakes and complete dietary profiles in individuals with high free sugar intakes. A further aim will be to investigate a role for low calorie sweeteners in adherence to the recommendations. The work will be undertaken using a randomized controlled trial with both quantitative and qualitative outcomes, assessing dietary profiles, food choice and food preferences, adherence to recommendations and barriers and facilitators to dietary change. The work is intended to provide fundamental knowledge on reducing free sugar intakes through demonstration of the effectiveness of different types of recommendations for encouraging dietary change, and the role of low calorie sweeteners in this change. The work will also further understanding of the barriers and facilitators to making this specific dietary change, and the potential changes in free sugar intakes that can be achieved. Findings will be of value to Governments, health professionals and the food industry around the world.

The project is funded by Bournemouth University and the International Sweeteners Association.
