The CarbHealth-project received funding from the Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life” and from the ERA-NET Cofund HDHL INTIMI. The project will start April 1st 2020 and will last for three years. The project is lead by Professor Jutta Dierkes with partners Simon Ballance from Nofima AS (Ås, Norway), Anette Buyken from the University of Paderborn (Germany), Antje Körner from the University of Leipzig (Germany) and Rikard Landberg from the Chalmers University (Sweden). Combining a randomized clinical trial, data from existing cohorts in middle-aged (HUSK-study, Norway) and children (KFO and LifeCHild, Germany), and a meta-analysis of published RCTs and observational studies, the project will address the overall hypothesis that diets that are high in habitual consumption of dietary fiber, also through regular consumption of high-fiber bread, can form an integral part of a plant-based healthy diet associated with benefits for body weight and T2DM risk.
