The Human Nutrition Unit (HNU)

HNU is a nutrition research facility within The University of Auckland, New Zealand’s most prestigious and largest University.

The Unit undertakes research to establish links between diet, health and disease prevention.

We carry out nutrition intervention trials investigating the relationships between aspects of diet and health issues such as:

  • Overweight and obesity

  • Weight control & appetite regulation

  • Metabolic syndrome & dyslipidaemia

  • Cardiovascular & diabetic risk

Trials are carried out both as academic and commercial collaborations.
