Julianne Nguyen Presents at ICUR

Dietetics major Julianne Nguyen presented the findings of her study, Quantifying Herb and Spice Intake at the Idaho Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR). 

Though research supports the health benefits of spice/herb consumption, no existing dietary assessment tool captures information on their intakes. Working with mentor Dr. Cynthia Blanton, RDN, Julianne tested the accuracy of an online herb/spice questionnaire against 7-day food records.

Volunteers reported spice/herb intake more frequently and in greater detail using the questionnaire vs. food records. The questionnaire proved to be effective for collecting spice/herb intake and could be adopted more widely if validated in a larger study using other comparison methods.
