Participants needed for fiber study
K-State researchers are recruiting participants for a study examining the impact of daily fiber consumption on metabolic health.
Participants will need to consume a nutrition bar, that will be provided, daily for eight weeks. There will be a total of three visits that are approximately one hour each. 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.
- Fasting glucose, cholesterol and lipids.
- $140 cash compensation.
Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 65; upper normal/overweight/obese BMI; have no diagnosed metabolic health issues — diabetes, hyperinsulinemia, etc.; not allergic to wheat or gluten; willing to consume a nutrition bar for eight weeks; and available to commit approximately three hours of their time over three separate visits.
Forty-eight spots are currently available.

This study has been reviewed by the Institutional Review Board and received approval No. 9978.
