Project Details

Description

ISAFRUIT was a trans-European research project focusing on how to increase consumption of fruit in Europe. The project involved about 200 researchers from 60 different research and development institutions and SMEs in 16 countries. The main project terminated in the summer 2011, but the subproject, involving Division of Nutrition is still continuing.
Our specific objective is to investigate if there is an association between fruit intake and body weight and to increase consumption of fruit at workplaces by increasing availability and accessibility of fruit. Various types of studies have been and are being conducted to reach these objectives. They include: a systematic review of current studies on fruit intake and body weight; a cross-sectional study on data from a representative part of the population in five different European countries; a feasibility study at eight different workplaces in Denmark; and an intervention study at a large workplace in UK.
Project financing:
The project is both funded by EU and internally.
