Dr. Nicklas lists all of the following food industry funding on her Baylor USDA faculty page.
Nutritional Consequences of Substituting Beef Protein with Various Nutrients and Food Sources
Grant funding from National Cattlemen’s Beef Association National Cattlemen’s Beef Association
$165,289.00 (12/15/2011 – 12/15/2012)
The proposed research will address several key research questions that will provide critical information for the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans Advisory Committee. This will be an opportunity for NCBA to build a solid foundation of evidence on the role of beef and animal protein in healthy dietary patterns; especially those based on typical American diets.
The Role Rice Plays in Achieving a Healthy Diet and Promoting Public Health Benefits- The Rice Foundation
$115,411.00 (01/01/2012 – 12/31/2012)
Grant funding from The Rice Foundation
The overall goal of this research is: To provide credible scientific support for whole grain brown rice and enriched, fortified white rice as a “quality carbohydrate” and a “superior grain” with outcomes that demonstrate the positive role rice can play in achieving a healthy, balanced diet; one that meets the main principles set forth in the US Dietary Guidelines for Americans and provides a public health benefit.
The Effects of Breakfast on Neuropsychological Functioning- #34987-I
$1,252,893.00 (07/01/2011 – 08/31/2015)
Grant funding from Ferrero
The goal of this study is to evaluate the effects of: a) consumption of breakfast versus no breakfast; and b) consumption of breakfast in two subgroups of children, those at nutritionally at risk versus healthy children, ages 8-10 on short-term neuropsychological functioning.
Understanding the Role of Breakfast and Snacking Patterns in Chronic Disease Risk- Kellogg’s Corporate Citizenship
$72,000.00 (12/01/2011 – 11/30/2012)
Grant funding from Kellogg’s Corporate Citizenship Fund
The goal of the proposed research is twofold: 1) to look at patterns of breakfast, RTE cereal, and snacking consumption and disease risk and, 2) to determine the independent effects of breakfast, RTE cereal, and snacking on disease risk after controlling for correlated components in the diet and health behaviors.
Unscrambling the Research: Eggs, Healthy Lifestyle, and Health Outcomes- #Egg Nutrition Board
$100,000.00 (11/01/2010 – 11/30/2012)
Grant funding from Egg Nutrition Board
The goal of the proposed research is twofold: 1) to examine egg consumption patterns in relationship to nutrient intake and disease risk, and 2) to determine the independent effects of egg consumption patterns on disease risk after controlling for covariates, including, but not limited to correlated food components in the diet and health behaviors.
