Effects of Grapes on Celiac Disease
The Food Structure & Function Lab and Functional Foods & Human Health Laboratories in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Colorado State University are currently seeking participants for a research study examining the effects of table grapes on the symptoms and immune response associated with celiac disease.
Who Can Participate?
• Adults aged 18+
• Diagnosis of celiac disease by a physician
• Following a gluten-free diet for > 3 months
• Other inclusion and exclusion criteria apply and will be evaluated through phone and in-person screening
• Measures of blood pressure and cardiovascular health
• Monetary compensation up to $200
Participants will be asked to consume a randomly assigned treatment daily for 14 days (69 g freeze dried table grapes or 69 g placebo). Participants will complete initial screening tests and qualified participants will undergo cardiovascular testing and provision of blood, urine and stool samples. Involvement in the study will last approximately 1 month total from screening to completion, though the test period will last only 17 days. Involvement will consist of 3 test visits over this period (2 visits of ~1.5h, 1 visit of ~8h). Participants will receive financial compensation of up to $200 for their time. The study will take place on the CSU campus in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition.
