Alison studies the effects that foods and natural health products have on our health. She is most interested in functional foods, which are foods with active components that can influence health. She studies these foods in people to see if consuming them can reduce their risk of chronic disease and improve their health.
In addition to studying the health benefits of functional foods, Alison also studies people’s consumption, perception and knowledge of functional foods.
