Full4Health ('Understanding food-gut-brain mechanisms across the lifespan in the regulation of hunger and satiety for health') brings together 19 multidisciplinary academic and industry collaborators from across Europe to investigate mechanisms of hunger, satiety and feeding behaviour, and how these change across the life course, effects of dietary components and food structure on these processes, and their possible exploitation in addressing obesity, chronic disease and under-nutrition.

Full4Health is being coordinated from the University of Aberdeen Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health.

If widely adopted, their use may help to eliminate the variability that can arise in studies on food choices more info>>
