Participants needed for nutrition bar study

By Trevor J. Steele

K-State researchers are recruiting participants for a study examining the impact of resistant starch on metabolic health. All visits will take place at the Physical Activity and Nutrition Clinical Research Consortium, or PAN-CRC, on the third floor of the Lafene Health Center building.

Participants in the study will learn about their health and receive benefits:

  • Body fat using a DEXA scan — valued at approximately $250
  • Fasting glucose, cholesterol, hemoglobin, and hematocrit
  • Insulin sensitivity
  • Typical physical activity levels
  • Nutrition information regarding your typical food intake via a food recall
  • $140 cash compensation 

Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 60; living in Riley County; willing to consume a starch snack bar and glucose beverage at multiple visits; and available to commit approximately 18 hours of their time over seven separate visits. Twelve spots are currently available.  

For more information contact Trevor Steele, graduate student in human nutrition, at tsteele13@k-state.edu.

This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 9368.
