Participants needed for nutrition study

Submitted 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 and bone density using a DXA scan — valued at approximately $250.
  • Fasting and postprandial glucose.
  • $140 cash compensation.

Participants must: be between the ages of 18 and 64; overweight/obese BMI; have no diagnosed metabolic health issues — diabetes, hyperinsulinemia, etc.; willing to consume a starch/water beverage and glucose beverage at multiple visits; and available to commit approximately 21 hours of their time over seven separate visits.

Twenty spots are currently available.

This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 9066.
