INAF is a research institute dedicated to the study of how foods contribute to health and the prevention of chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some illnesses related to aging. Through its various activities, INAF passes on this knowledge to healthcare professionals and the public with the goal of improving the population’s health and well-being.
INAF boasts Canada’s largest nutrition clinical studies unit. An average of 400 participants take part in these studies each month. Some of the projects carried out here have become global benchmarks and have contributed to the development of policies and recommendations put forward by the Canadian government and even the World Health Organization.
