Sang receives $2.8 million grant to study whole grains
EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Sept. 4, 2018) -- There’s evidence that whole
grains can help prevent chronic disease, but there aren’t accurate
tools to measure beneficial compounds from whole grains in the body.
To better understand the effects of whole grains on health,
biomarkers for their exposure and effects are needed.
Shengmin Sang, Ph.D., a food scientist with North Carolina
Agricultural and Technical State University, has received a $2.8
million, five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s
National Institutes of Food and Agriculture to change that. He will
work with his research partners to identify biomarkers for whole
grain wheat and oats.
This project could help answer a host of questions, such as whether
obesity, age and gender affect the body’s response to whole grains.
It could help explain the impact of gut microbiota on the metabolism
of whole grain phytochemicals and could lead to a more
individualized, and more effective, approach to nutrition.
