Our research

OxBCNH carries out work on behalf of a diverse range of clients from the health and food industry. We partner with manufacturers, retailers and suppliers ranging from small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) to multinational global organisations. Our current research focus is glycaemic control, obesity and inflammation. We are internationally recognised as being a leading centre for research into glycaemic response and are the only centre accredited by the Glycemic Index Foundation in Europe. We continue to be one of the largest centres in Europe working in this area.

We run small to large scale nutrition trials to determine the impact of an intervention on human participants. From testing products for weight loss to determining the levels of polyphenols absorbed into the body.
